All work will be evaluated as follows,
i) A correct answer that is properly justified willo receive a mark of 100%.
ii) An answer that is correct but not clearly justified may receive fewer marks.
iii) Any question that does not have a ccorect answer will receive a mark between 0% and 50%.
This marking scheme should encourage you to do it right the first time, and to find ways to verify your solutions.
See the laboratory guide for details of specific labs.
i) Read the laboratory outline before entering the lab and do any required calculations beforehand.
ii) Show up propmtly at the beginning of the laboratory. Being late will only cost you.
iii) Take all required measurements and record them carefully.
iv) Always leave the lab in an equivalent or better state than you found it - failure to do so will result in penalties.

vi) If you break something, bring it to the attention of the lab supervisor so that it may be fixed or replaced.
vii) Remember that a lab in not about marks, but about you getting to get hands on experience, and having time to explore physical phenomenon.
viii) Lab reports are to be neatly completed following normal report writing procatices.
ix) Try to work quickly at the start of the lab so you have time to explore the equipment at the end of the lab period.
