  Schedule of Lab Activities
Worksheets typically will be linked to this site the Saturday or Sunday before the relevant class period.  Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat or another program that opens PDF files is required to print the worksheets.

Keep worksheets for use during lab exams, but don't let this mislead you into thinking the exams are bogus.  You won't find answers in the worksheets.  Rather, if you've correctly completed the worksheets or corrected your answers in the worksheets, the worksheets will provide examples you can follow during the exams.  The exams will measure your ability to evaluate the design of experiments and form conclusions based the results of experiments using the same thought processes you learn from the activities you complete during lab class.
