Complete the Pre-Lab for this activity. You need to have your Title, the two questions, the "objective", the "procedure", the "results" data table set up, and on page 10 the analysis question. Having this completed will help you finish the lab in class. You will need to conduct the lab, based on the procedures in your notebook and answer the analysis question.
Today was your baseline for how to write a lab report. You were given an on-line lab and asked to start a formal lab report (pre-lab). This meant you needed to read the two pages of background information and write the following (by the end of class) and share it with me to receive a grade for completion.
This lab was about trying to mix colors and using the meniscus to make accurate and precise measurements in a graduated cylinder. We soon learned that this lab was going to fail if we followed it exactly as it was written, so using the Science Process we know that when gathering data some experiments fail and instead of giving up we refine/alter the procedures and try again. Which we did, great job everyone. After you completed the lab we finished up with a lab report.
Title: Colors Lab
Purpose: To make accurate measurements using the meniscus
Methods and Materials: (see handout) you can write this in your IAN
Results: you should have your sketches and your table. Also, don't forget to include the fact the lab failed, why it failed, and how you altered it
CER: can be the same in this case as I wanted you to work on it together.
EXAMPLE LAB REPORT FOR DROPS ON A PENNY. WE WILL GO OVER THIS IN CLASS AS WELL
Methods and Materials:
Drops on a Penny
Introduction: The purpose of this lab was to see how or if there is a difference in the number of water droplets a penny can hold to the number of soap droplets. Water and soap do not just flow off a penny but create a bubble due to surface tension, this property is due to the cohesive nature of the liquid, or the ability for the molecules to stick together until it reaches a critical threshold in which it cannot take anymore. If water has a higher number of droplets than soap on the penny, then it will have a higher surface tension because of the cohesive properties in water than soap.
