LABORATORY WRITE-UPS (REPORTS) – Each person will be asked to complete two (2) write-ups to be graded. Remember, each individual will be receiving a grade on HIS/HER OWN work; copying of write-ups is considered cheating and will be penalized as an Honor Code violation. Each write-up should include a cover sheet with the title of the experiment and the student name, due date, and names of the laboratory partners. Labs that are missed due to unavoidable absences are to be completed, acknowledging those partners responsible for completing the work and providing data. Laboratory protocols will provide you with the following: Title/Purpose; Background; Materials; Procedure; Questions (occasionally) – the protocol must be included directly behind the cover sheet. Sections in the write-up that each student are responsible for should follow the format below : 1. Observations – what information is necessary for you to remember? ex. How to use a piece of equipment, how your equipment was set
