Abstract Title: Advanced Physics Laboratory at Purdue University Calumet
Abstract: I will present the syllabus for PHYS 380: Advanced Physics Lab at Purdue University Calumet. PUC is a master's comprehensive university and the Department of Chemistry and Physics offers a B.S. in physics with optional computational, engineering, and education emphases. PHYS 380 is a required course for all but the secondary teaching track. In recent history, PHYS 380 has been offered annually with a typical enrollment of 2-4 students. Students attend one hour of lecture, concentrating on error analysis, statistics and theory review, and at least 5 hours of lab per week, during which time they complete 5 'standard' experiments. Students are expected to submit a formal lab report for each experiment and give an oral presentation on a single experiment.
