Work ahead of schedule Ask for advice (FIRST QUARTER FEEDBACK) Lab Report Sections Title (1 point): This should include the lab title, date of lab, partners, course, teacher. Purpose (2 points): The purpose of the experiment (goal). This

should include a written introduction of concepts addressed in lab. Procedure (1 points): The students description of the procedure. Should be a clear step by step outline of all steps completed. The procedure should be repeatable by the person reading the report. Must include materials used in each step when applicable. Lab Report Sections

Observations (2 point): All observations should be recorded and include original data recorded along with the observation. Note the importance of the observation. (Ie: Bubbling occurs which means a gas was produced) Data/Calculations (5 points): All necessary data should be neatly organized (ie: utilize tables/charts and graphs when applicable).

Measurements should reflect significant figures and MUST have units. Calculations should be labeled clearly and include an equation with all variables labeled, a numerical setup, work and solution. Solutions must have a unit and reflect significant figure rounding. Questions (2 points): All questions answered thoroughly and in

complete sentences. Lab Report Sections Conclusion: (7 points): Your conclusion should include the following: A statement of what was learned from the data/results. An explanation of how the purpose of the lab was met (or an

answer to the question given in the purpose) with support from data/evidence/calculation results from the lab. Relevant calculations of error (percent error, percent yield, etc.) Specific experimental sources of error. SHOULD NOT INCLUDE HUMAN ERROR.
