    Lab Reports



    Note to Physics students:

    Many of you aspire to improve your overall grade and lab grades are a critical component of your grade. As you prepare to complete your labs please do the following:

    Ask yourself:

      1. Did I
    answer the question thoroughly, 
                explaining my answer with my 
                understanding of science concepts?
           - address all aspects of the question?
           - where appropriate, use detail  
    data) from the lab to
                support my claim.

      2. Is my lab the best I can do, or did I do
              enough just to get by? Minimal effort
              deserves a minimal grade.

      3. Did I read over my lab? Answer every
             question? Follow all directions?

      4. Does my answer make sense?

      5. Did I round correctly? 
             If the directions say to round to the
             nearest tenth make sure you round
             Remember if your calculator says 4, 
             record 4.0
             Never use the repeating sign!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                  You cannot measure to infinity!

    Remember you must put forth the effort to demonstrate your thorough understanding of the Physics and science concepts. My goal is to improve your lab reports and raise your lab scores to meet higher expectations.
