LAB GRADING

1. Quizzes - 20 points each

Each quiz will be given the first 10 minutes of class. The

materials covered on the quiz will cover information from the

previous laboratory and information from the lab to be performed

that day. There will be no makeup quizzes given unless you have

a acceptable written excuse for the day of the quiz you have

missed.

5 quizzes X 20 points each = 100

2. Laboratory Practical (4/26,28) = 100

TOTAL POINTS = 200

Additionally a microscope will be assigned to each person. It is

the responsibility of that person to care for and store that

microscope properly. Microscopes will be checked by the T.A.

and 1 point will be taken off for each infraction.

REMINDER - YOUR LABORATORY GRADE IS 25% OF YOUR FINAL GRADE!
