experiments. Safety considerations also demand the proper use of equipment, suitable disposal of leftover chemicals (never down the sink!) and appropriate attire (i.e., avoid short clothing and open-toed shoes.) In a laboratory area drinking, eating, chewing and smoking are strictly prohibited. Keeping your working area clean is an absolute must. These requirements cannot be overstated and violations will have serious repercussions, (including reduction of the performance points). You will be asked to leave the laboratory if you are exposing yourself or your fellow classmates to dangerous lab practices. COMPUTERS AND SOFTWARE Bring a USB flash drive to every class to store data. Do not assume that the files created in one session will still be there the next. In addition to the software required to run several of the experiments, Excel and SigmaPlot have been installed on the computers in 2013A SEL. One may use any software desired to graph or plot data as long as the appropriate statistical error analysis is given (such as that available from Linest). You may find it useful to bring your laptop to each lab. All presentations must be done using Microsoft PowerPoint. ACADEMIC CALENDAR • Aug. 27, M Instruction begins. • Sep 3, Labor Day holiday.
