7/26 - FINAL EXAM and CHECK IN
GRADING: Lab reports are worth 8 points each.
Your score will be based on the accuracy of your results (6 points), outline of the procedure (submitted before work is begun - 1 point), and lab report with 'corrected' buret volumes (1 point). If you fail to turn in any
lab report within 1 week of the due date the lab will be considered incomplete. You may repeat
one experiment (including incompletes) from each block (EXCEPT those marked with a star (*)
unless that experiment is graded as incomplete) during the make-up period at the end of that
block for a better grade using a new unknown. If at the end of the semester there is any
experiment which is incomplete you will fail the course. Points will be deducted for errors on
laboratory reports. At the discretion of the instructor, each day that the lab is overdue points may
be deducted from your score. Lab reports are due by NOON on the day indicated. If I am not
here please have the secretary or any of the Physical Science faculty put the time and date on your
report and put it in my mailbox.
FINAL GRADE: 8.0 - 6.0 A;6.0 - 4.5 B; 4.5 - 3.5 C; 3.5 - 2.7 D
