 ===== In the lab ===== ===== In the lab =====
-Each Lab has two TAs assigned to it, a primary and a secondary. Your primary TA will start the lab by giving an introduction about the lab. Following this you will begin taking your measurements and following the exercises you will find in the lab instructions. Halfway through the lab your secondary TA will arrive. Both TAs will discuss with you what you have been doing in the lab to see how well you have understood what the lab was about and help explain difficult points. When your TAs are happy with what you have done then, and only then, you can leave. If the TAs are satisfied that you did a good job in the lab you will get the full 65% of the credit for the lab that we award for your in class performance. We expect most students who work hard and do the lab properly will be awarded a //​Satisfactory//​ grade. If, however, the TAs feel that you did a poor job you will be given a grade of //​Unsatisfactory//​. This means you will get only half credit for the lab. For an especially poor performance,​ you can also be given a grade of //​non-serious attempt//. In terms of your score this is equivalent to not showing up to the lab, you get no credit for doing it. Note that you **cannot** ​redo a lab to improve your score.  ​+Each Lab has two TAs assigned to it, a primary and a secondary.
