Article XX.X. Extensive Laboratory Definition
An extensive laboratory is a course in which laboratory components require extensive preparation
work before, after, and during the lab, and are equivalent to workload efforts in a lecture course.
Typically, the teaching of concepts and the learning of skills are primary functions of such classes.
An extensive laboratory hour is calculated at 100% of a lecture hour.
