If your lab instructor has asked you to watch these introductory videos, then you are required to do so for each experiment before the lab period begins.
If you do not watch the video, you may be required to work alone that week, since it is not fair to your partner if they are prepared for the experiment but you are not.
Please note that most of the videos are too long to watch in the break between classes, so it's recommended that you not wait until the last minute. Also note that the lab computers do not have speakers, so if you wish to watch the videos on the school computers, please remember to bring a set of headphones.
