FAQs

Tell me about lab.

The lab is 3 hours long and meets once a week. You will perform activities that complement the material you are learning about in lecture.

For the 1500 level labs, there is a 50-minute recitation section that accompanies the lab that meets either on Monday mornings the week of lab or Friday afternoons the week before lab. The lecture and the lab are separate courses and you must take them during the same semester.

 

Where does lab meet?

Labs will meet on the 9th floor of Altschul. On the first day of lab, an attendance sheet will be posted on the door.

 

When do labs start?

Labs begin on the first Monday of classes (first full week of school). You must attend the first lab.  If you are absent from the lab, you will be dropped from the course and your spot will be filled.
