Peer Critique of 1st draft of lab report
go over rubric/scoring sheet in class; answer clarifying questions HW: Finish lab report--final draft of Lab (mass effect on Weight) due in class on Monday (please remember to attach the score sheet as a cover page). Please remember to submit an electronic version to www.turnitin.com as well.Helpful tips: Excel Equations (it's a start--more to come) Helpful tips: Logger Pro (it's a start...more tips to come :) ) Helpful Video (YouTube): entering data and making max/min slopes--watch this if you are stuck on LoggerPro! :) Sample write-up--use this a formatting . It's not the only way to format your lab, but this is acceptable. Do not just copy this (that's plagiarism :) ).guideHW: Self-correct your uncertainty worksheet using this answer key |
