THE LABORATORY NOTEBOOK AND REPORT THE LABORATORY NOTEBOOK Your laboratory notebook is a permanent record of all of your work in the lab including your observations and thoughts about each experiment. It should be possible to write a complete description of any given experiment at least six months after it has been conducted. It is suggested that you include a Table of Contents in the front of your notebook with the title of each experiment and the page on which it starts. The laboratory notebook serves the following functions: 1. It gives a brief outline of the purpose of the experiment (why are you doing it) and the procedure used. You should record the following: a. The purpose – a description of the hypothesis of the experiment and the technique to be used to study the hypothesis. b. The procedure – an outline of each step performed in the experiment. This is not to be in paragraph form but should have a numerical format; complete sentences are not necessary. Do not copy the procedure directly from the lab manual; the outlined step-by-step procedure should be in your own words. Those with clear and easily read procedures will find that the experiment goes more smoothly and takes less time. NOTE:
