Learning techniques to be incorporated  
Suggestions on
Preparation and
Read the handouts very carefully before each lesson and fully understand the concept of the experiments. Reviewing the basic knowledge of physical measurements and error analysis is also useful.  
Requirements This lecture is combined with Laboratory Work in Material Sciences A, and students must register for both classes concurrently.  
Grading Method attitude toward the class including active participation for experiments (50%) and a lab report(50%) 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
