Please also make sure that you print out your report and hand it in to me no later than one week after the last day that you took data for that lab. In case it isn't obvious, please DO NOT share, email or otherwise electronically transmit your lab to me unless I specifically and explicitly tell you to do that.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO collaborate verbally. Do NOT copy or electronically share your lab reports with anyone. That RARELY ends well.
