TAs: Ms. Sarah Keithley, Mr. Guangyao Wang, and Ms. Kyungmin Kim
Important Rules:
You are
expected to bring to each session your own copies of the corresponding Lab Description and Worksheet
(for those labs that have one).
Labs missed will NOT be madeup. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
Due to the fact that all labs are at full capacity (which CANNOT be exceeded due to safety
regulations), you will NOT be allowed to attend any other lab, EXCEPT the one you have
registered for. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!. Please do NOT contact the lecturer or the TAs if you
wish to change your lab times. Lab times can only be changed officially through the drop/add
process.
 LABS will start the week of February 2, 2015, and will be held EVERY week (unless mentioned otherwise).
