Course Information

Prerequisite: You are ready for this course if you can write in paragraphs.

Description:  We design an experiment, do the experiment, and write a report about the experiment. This class is offered every month or so, and we change the experiment each time. This time, we do the titration experiment.

You also get Dr Scott’s 23 simple steps for making a good lab report every time, guaranteed. In both video course and written formats.

The big ideas you’ll be learning:

  1. Writing a solid, readable lab report that tells a story
  2. Making a template for future lab reports to save time
  3. Thinking like a scientist before, during, and after the experiment
  4. Organizing data
  5. Making measurements that are scientifically precise
