Wordy: Many have made the wise observation that when a stone is in motion rolling down a hill or incline that that moving stone is not as likely to be covered all over with the kind of thick green moss that grows on stationary unmoving things and becomes a nuisance and suggests that those things haven’t moved in a long time and probably won’t move any time soon. (67 words)

Concise: A rolling stone gathers no moss. (6 words)

“I” “we” etc….

Some good advice from Penn State “Style for Students”

  • You can use the first person in an abstract or introduction to stress the foundations of your particular approach, express authorial intentions, or emphasize your scientific convictions:
    • “In this paper, I argue that . . .”
    • “In contrast to other authors, we conclude that . . .”
  • When the first person does not suit you or your reader’s taste consider the common alternatives such as “this author,” “this paper.”
  • In memos, use the first person (and the word “you”) as needed, in particular in the introduction and conclusion.
  • Limit your use of the first person so that you do not create circumstances requiring you to use it repeatedly. (i.e. Experimental Section)
  • I am fine with the occasional use of personal pronouns. Some professors are not. Always ask!
  • This is where you include all the extra information.
    • Attachment A: Description of Experimental Set Up and Circuit diagram
    • Attachment B: Arduino Code (sketch) used to read IR sensor
    • Attachment C: Summary Data Plot/Table (if not included in memo)
    • Attachment D: Raw Data
  • Put attachments in order of importance and include text in each to explain what they contain.
  • Include a list of attachments at the end of the memo.
  • Refer to the attachments at appropriate places throughout the memo.

How are you structuring the memo?

What are you including as an attachment?

Do you have any figures or tables?

Today’s Exercise

Processing and Graphing your Data

Analyze your data and make the following:

A table indicating the peak force (average and standard deviation, since you performed 4 trials) experienced in the normal AND parallel directions for each activity.

A two-panel figure for each activity, with the panels showing plots for normal force versus time and parallel force versus time. Make sure your plots have titles and axis labels (including the appropriate units) and are accompanied by captions.

To create the plots, you will need to open your data for each activity in MS Excel and remove extraneous data (the segments of time before and after the activity corresponding to zero force readings).

NOTE: you may find the Excel “max” function useful.

Look at your data and discuss the questions in the procedure with your group.

Review Lab Report Guidelines (this one will not be a memo report!)
