How to set up a lab n otebook

How to Set up a Lab Notebook

The Scientific Method


Cover of notebook

Cover of Notebook

  • Name

  • Name of course

  • Class period


Table of contents

Table of contents

  • Leave the first page of your notebook blank to list table of contents

  • Number the pages of your notebook as you go


Every lab write up will include the following

Every lab write-up will include the following

  • Title and Date

  • Question

  • Background Information

  • Hypothesis

  • List of Materials

  • List of Procedures

  • Data/Data Analysis/Observations

  • Conclusion


Title and date

Title and Date

  • Animal Behavior Lab

  • 8/6/2014


Question

Question

  • Write a question or purpose statement about your investigation


Background

Background

  • After you research your lab topic/subject, summarize what you’ve learned. This may take a paragraph or two.


Hypothesis

Hypothesis

  • An if/then statement


List of materials

List of Materials

  • Create a list of EVERYTHING required to execute the experiment

  • Example:

    • 2 small petri dishes

    • 2 ml deionized water

    • 10 pill bugs

    • Etc……


List of procedures

List of Procedures

  • Use a numbering format to list all the steps you followed to execute the experiment. THIS SHOULD NEVER BE IN PARAGRAPH FORM! TOO HARD TO FOLLOW THAT WAY!

  • 1. Soak a large sheet of circular filter paper with 5 mls of distilled water

  • 2. Line the bottom of a large petri dish with the wet filter paper

  • 3. Place 10 pill bugs in the petri dish


Observations data data analysis

Observations/Data/Data Analysis

  • Collect your data and note observations

  • Then organize it into chart form (independent and dependent variable)

  • Then create a graph (independent variable on the x-axis and dependent variable on the y-axis)

  • Write a statement about the trends you observe in the data


Charts and graphs

Charts and Graphs


Graphs should always be drawn on graph paper and should include the following

Graphs should ALWAYS be drawn on GRAPH PAPER and should include the following:

  • Title

  • Labeled axis

  • Indicate units next to labeled axis

  • Legend

  • Line graph vs. bar graph


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • In paragraph form

  • Never simply write: “Our hypothesis was correct.” Write a description about what you learned from performing the experiment and what you will do next.
