Agenda for Labs

  1. Today you definitely need to talk with Koch about what needs to be included in your lab summary.
  2. Must finish taking data this week. Summary should be completed outside of class.
  3. 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.
