The precise dates will be confirmed on the Quercus course site in early September, and students must be available during those periods. On dates without Term Tests, class material will also be made available asynchronously. Synchronous participation will be required for Practicals every week. Students cannot alternate their Practical, on the same day, with any 100‐level BIO or CHM course lab. Students may add or change a Practical (P) section via ACORN until September 12, 2021. Starting September 13, 2021, adding or changing of Practical sections must be requested online at: https://sites.physics.utoronto.ca/ugrad/course-forms/practical-sections-forms.
