NotesAlthough this laboratory section of CHEM 1030 does not give separate credit, it does represent 30% of your overall grade for the course. Your lab grade consists of three components: 25% from your lab reports (your lowest lab report will be dropped) and from your lab quizzes (your lowest two quizzes will be dropped), 5% from a comprehensive laboratory final exam.

Safety in the lab is of the utmost importance! You will be instructed in the safe use of all lab equipment, safety procedures, and the location of all safety equipment. You must wear safety glasses AT ALL TIMES. You are also required to wear long pants and closed shoes (no shorts, skirts, or sandals). If you are not properly attired, you will not be allowed in the lab. There is no eating or drinking allowed in the lab (don't even bring food items into the lab).  In addition, yomay be required to demonstrate a basic understanding of the chemical and safety principles of a given lab by completing a lab quiz PRIOR to the lab.
