PHY 151 LAB REPORTS Description There are several laboratory activities required for the course. Each session is designed to: 1 provide concrete application of a basic concept or law, 2. increase technical skill in using laboratory equipment, 3. develop skill in writing lab reports. Grading Written lab reports will be the chosen method for evaluation. Each lab report is due one week following an activity. Each report is graded separately and the average of all the lab reports makes up the “Lab Average” in the formula for the final grade. Each student is responsible for their own understanding of analysis and interpretation of group data. Individual assessment quizzes will be administered following the completion of each report. Format For Writing Reports Lab reports will be completed using the following format: I. Title II. Purpose III. Experimental Procedure IV. Data V. Analysis VI. Conclusions VII. Appendices VIII. Attachments I. Title: This is as given on the activity supplement. It may be placed on a separate cover sheet or at the top of page 1 in the written report. II. Purpose: Includes an Objective and a Theory section. The Objective is a statement of the general principle being studied and any specific outcome expected. The Theory section should briefly state the theory behind what is being done, and - in your own words - relate results you expect to see to the procedure you will follow. (This means writing as you would to any lay person or supervisor who may not be technically savy). III. Experimental Procedure: Includes an Equipment and a Procedure section. A brief description of the equipment/experimental setup, and a description of how the activity was performed sufficient detail to demonstrate that you understand the “why” of the procedure. ( In your own words, describe accurately what you did and why). A sketch of the apparatus is helpful to describe the procedure and can be referred to. (Make sure sketches are labeled appropriately.) Use complete sentences when describing steps taken. Be sure to mention
