Makeup Labs

When a ChemPhys student misses a lab, s/he should immediately check online to determine what must be done to makeup the lab. When missing a lab, a student should NEVER copy data from a student who was present for the lab; such behaviors are considered as instances of academic dishonesty and will be treated accordingly. Instead, the student should view this page and follow the directions given here for making up missed lab work.

The listing below includes the lists of labs for each unit and directions for making up missed lab work.
