A key element of STEM is understanding the process in documenting Science Lab Reports and we felt it was important to add this to our iPlan Series.
This app provides a structured methodology of journaling for Science Labs. Helping students and teachers capture valuable information using text and/or voice**. Reports can be emailed and blogged to be shared at a later date.
- Abstract - Often written last; A summary of the experiment: procedure, results, and analysis.
- Introduction - A description of the scientific background for for the experiment, any previous related experiments.
- Purpose - Briefly state the reason for performing this experiment.
- Hypothesis - Describe the theory which will be tested during this experiment and predict what will happen. From a sentence to a paragraph in length.
- Procedures (Materials and Methods) - This may be a narrative or a list of specific steps. May include an equipment list.
- Results/Observations - Observed data, list data recordings, date recordings if needed
- Discussions - Analysis of what results mean and error analysis
- Conclusions - Restates purpose, hypothesis, and relates the results/observations and discussion. Also describe future experiments or areas of improvement
- Works Cited - bibliography of sources
NOTE: Because reports use HTML you can use standard HTML mark-up for line breaks or links (See blog for tips and tricks). When listing data use line breaks and/or punctuation such as "," or ";" to separate data value/unit pairs.
