bulletDue Dates for Write-Ups:

  3. For the Monday / Wednesday lab section, section 2, the short write-ups may either be handed in at the beginning of the next lab session after the two assigned lab sessions, i.e., at si+2 or during the Friday lecture following si+2.
  4. The long reports (for all sections) are  due at the beginning of the second lab session after the two assigned lab sessions, i.e., at si+3.
  5. Some of these rules will change after the Thanksgiving week; announcements and or modifications to the rules stated above may follow.
