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 hands-on "quiz" or interview with Koch.The in-class "quiz" is actually on-going...but you can request one at the end if you think I may have a bad impression of your understanding.
