Courses 1A-1B to 3A-3B are fundamental and designed to meet the needs of students preparing for applications of physies, or advanced work in the subject itself. Students will profit greatly if they supplement the course of laboratory work regularly laid out. For credit on special and supplementary laboratory work see course 118. The physical laboratory will be open five days a week throughout the year, and may be used, under the guidance of the instructors concerned, by advanced students. equipment of the laboratories is modern and extensive; and the University Library contains complete sets of all the important physical journals, and the proceedings and transactions of most of the academies and other



The laboratory deposit for courses 1A, 1B, 3A, and 3в is ten dollars each; for courses 2c and 2D, five dollars each; in all other courses, at the rate of five dollars a half-year for each laboratory exercise a week. The average amount returned to the student at the end of the half-year, after deducting for the cost of materials used and for breakage of apparatus, is about four dollars in courses 1A and 1B, two dollars in courses 3A and 3B; one dollar in courses 2c and 2D; and about two-fifths of the deposit in other


Students who choose Upper Division courses in physics must include an adequate amount of laboratory exercises in the work chosen; the instructor should be consulted on this point. Such students are strongly advised to take courses 105A, and 105в or 105c in the junior or senior year.

Teachers' Certificates. Twenty-four units of physics will be required for recommendation for the teacher's certificate. Applicants for the recommendation in physics, in making up this number of units, must include in their work the equivalent of courses 2A-2B and 3A-3B. See statements under these headings, and under course 118. (In all cases proposed combinations of courses should be submitted for approval to the Professor in charge of the department of physics.)
