The Guarantee. For the times listed above in amber each student (in the teams named) guarantees to be present from that time for at least 15 minutes, starting in room 095. If JDD or a teaching assistant has not shown up by 5 min, the student is free to leave. In some cases, if I'm running late, or am in room 222A or Arnold Lab B-20, I may check in by phone... x 3-9852: please answer! However, I will make every effort to meet with the students at their GAT (Guaranteed Appearance Time).
If I fail to show up within 5 minutes to room 095, then you are entitled to a Get Out of FTQ Free card, that you can use at any point in the future, to skip the FTQ in qualifying for a Lab. If I show up in the first 5 minutes and you are not there, then I may leave and come back. The official time to the nearest second will be kept by the clock on the back wall in 095.
For their times listed, and for 1 hour thereafter, those student teams have priority for my attention. If a student is not present within 15 minutes of his or her guaranteed time, an effort may be made to contact the student ASAP. May I have your cell phone number?
GATs are no longer in effect after Thanksgiving; from
Thanksgiving on to the end of the semester is the "no huddle" phase
of EN123...the far side of the Yerkes-Dodson curve...
Secondary Lab Reservations. Students should feel free to come to the lab at other times, keeping in mind that those with guaranteed times have priority. In fact, it would be good if each team chose, beyond their guaranteed appearance time, two more 2-hour slots during the M-F 11a.m.-5pm times. With 4-5 setups in rm 095-097, there are a potential of 5*5*7 = 175 lab hours to accommodate 15*4 = 60 team-hours per week at 4 hours/team and 15 teams.
Lab Etiquette: When you finish, leave your work area as clean/organized as you found it... put screwdriver, hemostatic clamps, and wire strippers back in their tray for your setup. Don't turn off computers... don't auto-arrange any computer "desktop."
