 Welcome to Physics 123, the laboratory component of Physics 121. This page is where you will find all the materials you will require for the laboratory. The lab manuals for this course are in an online format and include video content and tools to help you make calculations and plot the data you will record in your experiments. Although these pages are intended to guide you through the lab it is very important that you read through them and complete the MapleTA Lab Preparation exercise (accessible through the Blackboard course page for your lab section) ​ before you come to your lab session. **The lab preparation exercise will only be accessible before the lab session and is worth 35% of the credit for the lab.** Welcome to Physics 123, the laboratory component of Physics 121.

-A unique feature of this lab course is that **there is no written report due after the lab**. You will be assessed in class by your TAs based on exercises you complete and discussions you have with them. The assessment is of the form //​Satisfactory/​Unsatisfactory//​. If you are given a grade of //​Satisfactory//​ then you will get the remaining 65% of the credit for the lab. //​Unsatisfactory//​ grades mean you get only half credit for the lab. As all work is done in class you should count on being in lab for the full 2hrs. If you miss a lab because of illness or some kind of other emergency then you will be able to make the lab up in one of the designated make-up weeks, but you must arrange this with your TA and Prof. Dawber ​and provide documentation. After the lab, there will be clicker questions on Friday workshops which will test what you have learned from the lab. +A unique feature of this lab course is that **there is no written report due after the lab**.
