MEMO To: Instructor’s Name and GTA’s Name From: Group X (Section 5A, 1:30 PM); Your Name(s) Date: 01/15/04 Subject: Title of the Lab Introduction This is a short paragraph. In the first sentence or two, list what the goals and objectives of the lab are. HINT: the goals/objectives of the lab can be found in your course packet. The next sentence should indicate what is contained within the memo. For example: This memo contains results, discussions, and conclusions from Lab X. Results The results section is portion of the memo where you list THE RESULTS . Although this may seem very simple, it is a common source of error for many students. This is not the place for either Procedure (which is not required for most labs in ENG181), or Discussion (which is presented under the next heading). Provide the results that are asked for in the Memo Grading Guidelines, no more, no less. The Results section will generally be thin. Usually, this section is one or two small paragraphs of text referencing where the results are stored within the memo. You can choose to store the actual results in the memo by either inserting the tables and graphs directly into the text of the memo (recommended) OR appendicizing them at the end of the memo. For example, if I were completing a lab on the conversion of length from imperial units to metric units, I would do it in one of the following ways: A study of the conversion of length from imperial units to metric units has been conducted. The raw data is presented in Table 1. The relationship between measurements of length in feet and meters is graphed in Figure 1. Alternately I could tabulate and graph the information in an appendix (see Table 2 and Figure 2). Feet Meters 1 0.30 2 0.61 3 0.91 4 1.22 5 1.52 6 1.83 7 2.13 8 2.44 9 2.74 10 3.05 Table 1: By right-clicking on the table you can insert captions for tables and graphs. This feature is very helpful when you are assembling larger documents, like the lab REPORT later in the quarter.
