Lab Routine: Make sure that you arrive in class promptly. The teaching assistant (TA) is
authorized to take up to 10 points off your lab grade if you are late.
1. Minus 10 points off your first lab grade if you are not present for this intro.
2. Read lab before coming to class and become familiar with the procedure.
3. The TA may give a brief overview in some cases, discussing the lab theory and the

4. When you are told to proceed, you and your partner may do so at your own pace.
5. Refer to the TA when you have questions about the procedure or digital circuit

6. When you are finished, clean up your work area, notify the TA. You may leave when
the TA has inspected your workbench.

Course & Instructor Policies:

Laboratory exercise outlines, instructions for the lab report format, and a copy of this syllabus are
available on-line at the instructor\u2019s faculty home page (address shown above). All on-line
material is in Adobe Acrobat\u00ae (.pdf) format. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 or 7.0 to

Exams:There are no exams in this laboratory course.

Lab reports are always due the next session after the lab is completed. Late lab reports are NOT accepted. If a student has an extraordinary reason for being unable to submit a lab report on time, the report may be accepted late if the student arranges the date with the TA in advance, or with appropriate documentation of the problem. Lab reports will be returned about a week after they are turned in.

Class attendance:

Lab class attendance is often taken when lab reports are turned in. You cannot use your lab
partner\u2019s data to do your report \u2013 you must attend the lab yourself to get credit for your report!
Points can be deducted for tardiness by your TA.

Lab citizenship, etc.:
Proper lab deportment for engineering students is taken for granted. When you enter the lab,
speak quietly if you are carrying on a conversation.MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF YOUR
CELL PHONE.Do not listen in mp3 players, Ipods, etc., in class. Students found playing
computer games in lab will be criticized, ridiculed, and possible have points taken off their next
lab report grade!
Field Trip Policies and Off-campus Instruction and Course Activities: No off-campus activities in
this course.
Student Conduct & Discipline:

The University of Texas System and The University of Texas at Dallas have rules and regulations for the
orderly and efficient conduct of their business. It is the responsibility of each student and each student
organization to be knowledgeable about the rules and regulations which govern student conduct and
activities. General information on student conduct and discipline is contained in the UTD publication, A to

Z Guide, which is provided to all registered students each academic year.
