Every experiment section that requires you to build a circuit and test it has an asterisk (*). For those sections:

  • For the in-class lab: Demonstrate the working circuit to your lab instructor.
  • For online lab: Take a video to describe your circuit, upload the video to YouTube, and put the link in the report.
