 j0255990(p).gif (2579 bytes) Lab Work

In addition to the 13 exercises in your lab manual, several additional labs have been designed specifically for this class.  As with all your other assignments, use the submission forms in your In Box in order to record and send in your answers for all lab assignments.  I strongly recommend that you first complete your labs, writing down all your answers, and then open the submission forms and "copy-and-paste" your answers onto them.  You do NOT want to compose directly on submission forms because there is a risk of losing your work if your computer connection fails midway through!
