Biology 304


The tutorial on writing a lab report is available; the PowerPoint lecture may also prove useful. A useful page on the technical points of writing style is provided. You will be expected to write a clean report in formal, scientific writing. In addition, there is a page with graphing tips that you should read prior to, or as you create, your graphs. Remember, hand-drawn graphs are perfectly acceptable, as long as they are done correctly. Also, you can download a MS Word document outlining how to create a table.

Some constructive criticism of graded lab reports from previous years can be found here.
