Laboratory Report Guidelines

Dear Students:

Laboratory reports are some of the most important mechanisms of communication in the sciences.  I have provided clear instructions in my laboratory report writing guide.  This is available on the learning web.  I am also posting links to other colleges and universities laboratory report writing guides and examples of laboratory reports.  I expect to see laboratory reports that meet the guidelines as set forth in my Laboratory Report Supplemental Writing Guide.  I expect you all to meet the quality of student work accepted at other colleges and universities across the country.  If you are having difficulty please contact me immediately so that we can come up with a solution together.  I will also put you in touch with the many resources available to ensure your success.
