Labs are mandatory. You must attend 4 (four) labs to earn your 25% lab grade. After that, labs are worth 1 extra credit point for attendance. You come when you can. There will be substantial extra credit offered in the lab sessions and some test material will come from the labs

What to bring: lawn chair, blanket, flashlight, rubber band, bug spray, notebook, pencil or pen, any maps or charts handed out in class.

Remember to dress for the weather! Layers are best if it is cold. A coat wil also help keep away the bugs! See you at lab.
