Agenda for Labs
 Today you definitely need to talk with Koch about what needs to be included in your lab summary.
 Must finish taking data this week. Summary should be completed outside of class.

Must complete your handson "quiz" or interview with Koch.The inclass "quiz" is actually ongoing...but you can request one at the end if you think I may have a bad impression of your understanding.
