COVID-19 Updates for Summer and Fall 2020: All students are permitted to do all of their credits through online studies until further notice -- the 3-credit limit for online studies is suspended. Lab studies are discontinued until further notice. Alternative credit papers remain an option as always. Grade penalties for research participation are suspended for Summer 2020 and instead each credit hour of research participation will result in a 0.5% (half a percentage point) bonus to the student's course grade, up to a maximum of 3.5 percentage points for 7 credits. So if your course grade is 87% and you earn 5 credits your course grade becomes 89.5%; if you do 7 credits it becomes 90.5%. This policy supersedes the grading policy described in the Instructions below. The policy for Fall 2020 will be updated in August or September.

Go directly to the Experiment Management System if you have already read the instructions below. If not, READ THIS PAGE FIRST.
You should also print out the StudentRecordSheet.pdf and use it to keep your own records. You should bring it to each experiment and have the experimenter sign it as proof of your participation. Hold on to it, just in case there is an error in our record keeping. For experiments conducted over the web, you may receive an email as proof of your participation instead, or be presented with a page you can print out for your records.
