What you need to know before attending your first lab....

Lab Sessions start the week beginning January 11 in room FR306.

 

Due to the current pandemic, IN-LAB SESSIONS at Capilano University will be held at only half of regular student-capacity so that appropriate 2 meter physical-distancing can be maintained while present in the lab room.  Students will be provided disposable gloves and are advised to bring their own face-masks.  Additional measures, such as plexiglass barriers, one-way signage, enhanced ventilation and disinfectant treatments of all high-touch areas will be utilized to futher protect students and faculty while in the lab. 

Students will be assigned to either Group "A" or Group "B" and attend the in-lab sessions following their Group's unique schedule,  Online experiments will be performed during the weeks when a Group is not conducting in-lab experiments.

Group A / B lists will be mass-emailed to students a few days before the labs begin, and may also be posted on the eLearn page for each individual lab section.  We apologize for the last-minute nature, but we must ensure all students have registered into the labs before we split them into groups.

Laboratory Attendance

Attendance at laboratories is mandatory, and missed work that has not be made-up in some manner will be assigned a zero grade.  To pass the lab component of this course you must have attended and completed a required minimum of laboratory work.  This minimum is dependent upon a number of factors and will be raised by your laboratory supervisor, if necessary.

In the current pandemic situation, if you are feeling sick, please stay at home and do not attend an “in-person” lab session.

If absence from an in-person in-lab session is unavoidable, contact your lab supervisor, preferably before the class, and certainly no more than one day after the missed experiment. Unavoidable absences from the lab (to which there is also a limit) are governed by the Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences Policy Regarding Missed Examinations and Labs which can be found in your course outline.

 A student missing more than 2 in-person lab session might have difficulty passing the lab course.

Laboratory Report Deadlines

Most reports will be due at the end of the laboratory session. Information about due times is found in the "Prelab Preparation" section of each experiment in the lab manual. The full report and Spectroscopy will require more time for completion; due dates and times will be confirmed by your instructor at the beginning of the lab session. Always submit your report exactly as your instructor directs. Those reports due at the end of a session should be submitted before you leave the lab. Those reports with extended deadlines should be submitted in the correct drop box in the hallway outside FR308.

Late Laboratory Reports

Penalties will be applied to reports received after the stated deadlines. Late report policies are set by the Department of Chemistry and applied to all laboratory components of chemistry courses at Capilano University. Since the late report policy is set by the Department of Chemistry, your instructor is obligated to apply the penalties as described below

A late report received up to 24 hours after the deadline will be assessed a penalty of 50% of the total possible marks. Late reports must be submitted to one of the chemistry laboratory personnel to be signed and dated. Late reports left in the hallway drop box after the deadline, or left in the wrong drop box, will not be marked.

Reports received more than 24 h after the deadline will not be marked, resulting in 100% loss of total possible marks.

For more complete details on the late report policies, consult your laboratory guide.
