During the Lab





Came prepared to work: on time, cleared work area, brought lab paper.
Read through experiment: locates and uses correct (clean) equipment, completes the experiment with few questions on procedure.
Worked efficiently: finished in the time allowed, stayed on task, followed all written and oral instructions.
Works with safety in mind:
Clean work area free of excess material, no horse play, no breakage of equipment, follows safety measures during lab (goggles, apron, hair tied back, no loose clothing, no open toe shoes), notifies instructor of injuries and breakage.
Cleaned up after experiment:
All glassware cleaned and restocked in proper place, all equipment returned to proper storage, lab table free of debris and spills, no garbage in sink!

Laboratory Report

Neatly done in pen, all sections complete, handed in on time, diagrams are labeled, research, where appropriate, is completed.
Data Collection:
Lists appropriate observations, records the appropriate data. Measured values are recorded and listed in an organized in a table.
Measured values are recorded to the appropriate significant figure. Data values, when appropriate, are within the expected range of accuracey.
Data Analysis:
Numerical data is manipulated; calculations shown and labled. Calculations preformed with accuracey to the appropriate significant figures and labled with the correct units. Graphs (used when appropriate) are neat, complete, and accurate.
Student reflects upon lab to find appropriate outcomes and relationships. Infrences made, interpolation and extrapolation of graphs sited.
Possible errors are identified/listed that may affect the outcome. Possible modifications are included that might remedy errors.
Write up:
Reflects care in thought and time prepared. Answers all possible questions that may have arose in lab. Grammar, spelling, punctuation reflect maturity. Conclusion stated reflects the hypothesis.
