General Instructions for Activities in Physics I A) Most activities are divided into two parts: Observations – observing the general behavior of a system and collecting data, Analysis – interpreting the data and reporting the results. B) Observations must be done in class, with your active participation. These are team projects so they must not be done outside of class unless your instructor tells you do so. You will record your observations, and your written record must be clear and neatly written. C) Analysis is done after you have completed your observations. You will make your own analysis notes based on the analysis steps and questions in that day's activity instructions. Once you are satisfied that your analysis is correct, you will prepare a brief written report to be handed in for grading. D) Your Written Report is due at the end of the class. You should note at the top of the page your name, section number, and activity number. The written report will include your data, analysis, and results. You are permitted to work with and obtain help from any source as you prepare your report – however, you may not directly copy another person's report. Your written report should be succinct – usually two pages (front and back of one sheet) will suffice. Handwritten reports are fine but they must be legible. E)
