Spring Quarter Assignments

From the Laboratory... Hands-on laboratory work is essential to achieve an understanding of science. All assignments will be posted to the web and it is your responsibility to prepare for your lab sessions by reading the exercises, completing any prelab assignment, and bringing the packet to your lab session. Safety in the lab is important. All students must complete the laboratory safety session and the laboratory safety quiz to work in the lab setting. A copy of the laboratory safety manual can be found online.
