WebAssign: A WebAssign account is REQUIRED for every student in
Physics lab. Go to www.webassign.net/ncsu . The WebAssign license for lab
assignments should be purchased from WebAssign at
addition to lab assignments, this license includes the lab eManual,
so a separate lab manual does not need to be purchased.
Where’s the lab manual? The lab manual is available from the “My
ebooks” link to the left of the top center on your
lab WebAssign page.
Adding a lab section after the 'Last day to add a course

allowed. Adding or switching a lab

Missing a lab: You are expected to attend all labs. There are no make-up labs for ANY
reason. In certain circumstance you
may be excused from ONE lab.
If you will miss a lab due to being a participant
in a scheduled official University event you can present your Lab Instructor with a copy of the official
letter stating your participation and will be excused from that lab.
For ALL other requests for lab exemptions, you must download and fill out the
Lab Exemption Request Form, and submit it to the Director of Undergraduate Labs,
Robert Egler (SUMMER SESSION 1) in Fox 236 (email@example.com) , or
Keith Heyward (SUMMER SESSION 2), in Riddick 309 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
within 2 days of the missed lab.
Expectations of All Lab Students:
· You must arrive on time. Students more than 10 minutes late will not be allowed to complete the lab.
· You must bring a writing utensil and a calculator.
· You are expected to be a good group member:
· Include all members of the group in lab activities.
· Work effectively and efficiently as a group member.
· Assist other group members when needed.
Your TA will post your grades on WebAssign. It is YOUR responsibility to email your TA if you have any problems, or if your grade has been recorded incorrectly.
ALL LAB GRADES ARE CONSIDERED FINAL at 11:59 PM two days after the last day that classes meet. ALL discrepancies in grades should be brought to your Lab Instructor’s attention BEFORE that time.
Each lab is equally weighted.
Final lab scores will be rounded to the nearest whole number, such that fractions equal to or greater than 0.5 will be rounded up to the next whole number, and fractions less than 0.5 will be rounded down to the next whole number. For example, 79.5 rounds to 80, which is a B-, and 79.4 rounds to 79, which is a C+. The grading scale is as follows:
A+ = 98 and up A = 92 to 97 A-
= 90 to 91
B+ = 88 to 89 B = 82 to 87 B- = 80 to 81
C+ = 78 to 79 C = 72 to 77 C- = 70 to 71
D+ = 68 to 69 D = 62 to 67 D- = 60 to 61
F = < 60
While PY 206 typically accompanies PY 205, PY 206 is a separate one credit course, and the lab grade in PY 206 does not affect the course grade in PY 205.
