Abstract Title: Student Perceptions of an Introductory Laboratory Course
Abstract: We surveyed students taking an introductory university physics laboratory course over the summer. These students are science majors, but not physics majors. 47 students completed a written questionnaire, and 18 of those students were interviewed. Student perceptions of the purpose of the lab course and about what they liked and did not like about the course will be shared. These lead to implications for instruction and implications for improving communication among faculty, teaching assistants, and students.
