Unknown Lab Reports- Biol 211L – Spring 2011 Format for Unknown Reports. Scientific reports have to be written in a very specific format which is used in a majority of scientific publications. You are expected to follow this format for both of your unknowns. Each report will contain five sections: introduction, methods and materials, results, discussion, and references. Introduction. This is the section where you introduce your reader to your experiment. The main points should emphasize the purpose and importance of the experiment, why the reader should be interested in your results. This will be a fairly short section in your report. Methods and Materials. This section describes all experimental procedures which were followed. There are different ways of organizing the section, it may be done in prose or in a table format. The important point is that all the tests are included and that the section is organized well. The tests should be separated from each other and easy for the reader to find. You don’t need to copy the procedure for each test from the lab book, instead you may reference each test to where it can be found in the lab book. This section should not contain any results.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
