Time Management

A It is very important that you arrive to lab at least 10 minutes before the scheduled lab time. This will allow you to be prepared for administration of assigned seating and the pre-quiz.
B DO NOT use your phone during lab. Please put it away. The students are not allowed to use their phones during lab and you need to lead by example.
C Have the students complete all exercises in their task sheets before the end of lab (unless otherwise indicated in the task sheet).
D Do not have students skip sections in the task sheet because you want to leave lab early.
E Do not use lab time for grading.
F Do not work on your own projects during lab time.
G Follow up discussions can be given at the end of lab when everybody has completed the task sheet.
