The purpose of this lab is to expose you to the way scientists learn about the universe. In this way, the lab complements AY 101. However, AY 102 is a class in itself with its own rules and procedures:
- Safety rules are printed on the first page of your lab text.
- Read the exercise before coming to lab.
- Treat your instructor, lab colleagues, and the equipment with care and respect.
- “Ask 3 before me.” Once the class begins a lab, ask your lab partners first before asking the TA. If this fails after 3 people, then you may ask the instructor. This keeps the TA’s mental health by not having to repeat the same instructions 25 times an hour.
