1. Type your answers, observations, and results in bold.
2. Save your report often as you fill it out, so as not to lose information. 3. Use the report form as a single document, do not turn in separate reports for each lab 4. Use the ‘Save As’ option to save your file as a Word file 5. Save your lab report with this name: Last name, First initial, underscore V1. Thus Charles Darwin would save his Unit 1 Virtual Lab Report as DarwinC_V1. 6. Submit this report in the Dropbox under [Unit 1: Virtual Labs] before 12:00 PM PST on the second Saturday of the class.

Laboratory Reports

Each of your lab reports MUST include the following components to receive full credit and be organized in the following way.

1. Purpose (3 pts): one to two sentences briefly stating the learning objective for the assigned lab.

2. Lab Observations (5 pts): Explain what was observed during the lab activity. This section should be approximately one paragraph in length.

3. Lab Answers (10 pts): Answers to the lab report questions that reflect and demonstrate your understanding on the concepts. (Should be written in complete sentences for Labs 2-6)

4. Conclusion (12 pts): 1-2 paragraph learning reflection that summarize the lab and specifically addresses the learning objectives relating them back to the data or observations collected in the lab.

Weak conclusions containing little in the way of quality content or revealing a lack of effort towards reflecting on the purpose of the lab activity will receive ZERO credit!
