Introduction

This text is meant to accompany class discussions. It is not everything there is to know about Labs. It is meant as a  prep for class. More detailed notes and examples are given in the class notes, presentations, and demonstrations (click here.)

Objectives
 Students will: 1 Write a clear and proper lab that includes: 2 Share a Google Drive folder. 3 Share a Google Doc. 4 Insert a drawing into a Google Doc. 5 Insert an image into a Google Doc. 6 Draw on top of an image in a Google Doc. 7 Identify the dependent, independent, and control variables in an experiment. 8 Draw a graph with the proper placement of dependent and independent variables. 9 Calculate a graph's slope. 10 Describe a graph as representing one of the five most graph types that we will use based on the graph's shape. 11 Derive an equation showing the relationship between two variables using data linearization. 12 Use LoggerPro as a tool for linearizing data. 13 Use LoggerPro to generate a line of best fit for a collection of data. 14 Use LoggerPro to properly display the graph's results. 15 How to take a "screenshot." a.k.a. screen grab, screen print, screen capture 16 Divide up the tasks in a lab. 17 Collaborate using Google Docs.
