Titl e Pag e (1 point) This page contains the lab report title, your name, the course number, your UF ID and the date submitted. The title should reflect the purpose of the lab report. Please do not simply title your paper Lab Report, etc. Ab s tra c t (6 point s ) This is a brief (1 paragraph) overview of the entire paper. Basically the abstract consists of 1-3 introductory sentences, a sentence stating your objective, 1-2 sentences discussing your materials and methods, 1-2 sentences stating results, and 1-2 conclusion sentences. We strongly suggest you access published scientific papers and read the abstracts so you have a genuine feel for what an abstract accomplishes. You can do this on-line. This is on its own page and should be the first page after the title page. Although this is one of the first sections in your lab report, it is easiest to write this section last, after all of the other sections have been completed. Introdu c tion (12 point s ) This section should provide a good rationale for why your study was important and introduce what you plan to do. This portion of the paper is where you provide relevant background information on the subject. The introduction includes everything a person needs to know in order to understand the experiments. If you are not sure what to include, find a scientific article on the same or related topic and see how the authors introduced their work. Mat e rial s & M e thod s (6 point s ) Do not list your materials and methods used with a numbered list of steps you took. This is a d e t ail e d description of the methods used in conducting your experiment.

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.
