Louise’s Guide to writing the lab report Write this lab report like you are writing a primary research article. All of you should have by now read a journal article at least once so you know what this means. When your reader finishes the report, they should know: 1. Why you did this experiment 2. How you did this experiment and 3. What this experiment tells the scientific community. By now, you should understand why we completed each step in this module. By the end of the lab report it should be clear that you understood how all of the components of our experiments fit together and why we preformed each experiment. Here are some general guidelines that you should follow: Approximately 5-7 pages (if you can say everything in 4.5 that’s fine, please don’t add filler material to take up space) 12 point font, 1 inch margins Number pages on bottom center Cover page: Title, name, date, and section Abstract: (with title- 4pts) Concise summary of the report Should include the purpose and the major results
