  • Beginning in 9th grade, we recommend that science students produce a formal lab report for each experiment. These reports should be written from scratch on a computer with graphs and charts, not using pre-printed worksheets or with the graph bars already printed for them. Learning to operate programs like MS Word and Excel are vital skills for today's student. Also, learning how to communicate in a technical paper is a skill that is essential to scientific writing.

    The Student Lab Report Handbook is a concise student resource to help learn how to prepare a premier lab report. Syntax, voice, tense, word choice, technical expression, data analysis and error prediction are all discussed. This book is not specific to any discipline so it can be used with physics, biology, chemistry or any other subject.

    One chapter is devoted to instructions for creating graphs in MS Excel and Numbers, the Mac spreadsheet program.

    We even discuss the more advanced skill of showing error bars on spreadsheets.

    4 sample reports are also included in the back from various disciplines.
