You are required to conduct a total of eight experiments.  One experiment will be performed each week, with the first experiment starting the third week of classes.  Generally, there is ample time for you to complete the experiments within a lab period, provided that you read the lab manual before the lab period.

The class will be divided into groups of 4 students/group where each group will perform one experiment/week. The instructor will assign members of each group during the first week of the semester.  Once groups have been assigned they will work together the entire semester.  The eight experiments are divided into three sets; the first two sets have three experiments and the last set has two.  During a lab period all experiments in a set are conducted simultaneously by three different groups so that all the groups complete all three experiments in a set in three weeks.  The second set of experiments is then conducted for the next three weeks, and so on.  Details of the group arrangement will be further discussed in class.  Once the groups have been finalized, the schedule of experiments, according to the group numbers, will be posted on the web.

In addition to the eight experiments, the instructor and the teaching assistants will also perform demonstration experiments during the last few weeks of the semester.  The number and content of the demonstrations will depend on the availability of equipment and time. These will be scheduled later in the semester.
