Lab classes begin on Wednesday, January 17 for sections ABA, ABB, ABC and ABD
and on Tuesday, January 18 for sections ABE, ABF, and ABG.
Attendance is taken and it constitutes a part of your grade.

  • All Lab Sections meet in room 242 Burrill Hall.

  • Make Up Labs: If you miss a lab, Dr. Chapman holds make up lab sessions in room 242 Burrill Hall
    on Fridays at 10:15 AM (depending on Dr. Chapman's schedule).
    Contact Dr. Chapman if you need to attend a make up lab session.

  • Exam results will be returned in either lecture or lab classes about a week after the test is given.

Dr. Chapman’s office hours are:  3:15 – 5 pm on Monday,  4 – 5 pm on Tuesday,
3:15 – 5 pm on Wednesday and 3:30 – 4 pm on Thursdays in room 241 Burrill Hall.

If you miss a lab class but have grounds for being granted an excused absence, you will be allowed to make up the work that you missed. Contact Dr. Chapman whenever you miss a lab class, or know that you will have to miss a lab class, so we can make arrangements for you to do a make-up lab. There is a lab make-up session every Friday at 10:15 AM, just after the MCB101 lecture. Make-up labs meet in room 242 Burrill Hall. Alternatively, we may be able to allow you to attend a different lab section that is doing the same experimental work that you missed or must miss.

If you have a conflict that prevents you from taking an Exam or attending a lab class or lecture at the scheduled time, contact Dr. Chapman by e-mail: kenchap@life.illinois.edu
