the procedures of the lab experiment.
Pre-Lab Sheet: Is located at the end of each section prior to the data sheet, this document is to be turn in
at the beginning of the course.
Lab Data Sheet:
The data sheet located at the end of each experiment in the laboratory manual is due at the
beginning of the next class meeting.
Homework:
In the laboratory manual each experiment consists of a series of questions that are related to that
particular experiment. These questions are to be completed and calculations written legibly on a separate sheet
of paper or typed if additional space is needed. The homework is due at the beginning of the next class period.
Note: Late homework will not be accepted (including homework turned in at the end of the class period).

Class Policies
Attendance: Professors are required to take attendance.
Attendance at lab is vital in order to accomplish a sound foundation in the basic facts and concepts of chemistry.
However, if a student missed a lab, there will be no additional classes to attend in order to make-up that missed lab due
to limited space and availability. Therefore, there will be no make-up quizzes or labs allowed.
Professor’s Expectations- It is mandatory that each student attend every lab. Pre-Labs and Dry Labs are due at the start
of class. Laboratory reports are to be handed in at the beginning of the next class meeting by each group pair. The lab
reports are to be written in BLACK ink only (except for graphs and calculation sheets). If you make an error in your
laboratory write-up; mark out your mistake neatly using one line through the error. The use of white-out and non-black
ink pens will result in a deduction of 20 points. Furthermore, proper lab attire must be worn at all times when in the lab,
if improperly dressed you will be asked to leave and your grade will result in a zero for that particular lab.
