THE INTRODUCTION Content The introduction supplies the reader with sufficient information to understand the present study and evaluate its results. It should contain the following information: 1. A statement of the nature and scope of the problem investigated; why the experiment was undertaken and what you were expected to accomplish. It is not sufficient to state that you undertook the experiment to fulfill course requirements. You must explain why the experiment was assigned. This information will be supplied by your professor or lab T.A., or you can find it in reference works, if it is not already clear. 2. Review of the pertinent literature (this material is given to orient the reader, and is optional in a lab report). 3. Method of investigation (the reasons for the choice of a particular method may need to be explained). Traditionally the introduction is the place where you define any specialized terms or abbreviations you will use in your report.
