Data Book - OPTIONAL
Some projects require LOTS of data. If this is
you, then you might want to consider a data book for tracking the daily progress of your project. If you choose to do a data
book, then you don't need to include a data section in your final paper. As far as the visual display goes, we can find a
way to get some of your data table up on the display board. Remember, the data book is OPTIONAL and should only be used
if your project requires lots and lots of data. See me before you begin your data book to see if your project is appropriate
for the use of one.
1. Daily Log format for taking your data :
A daily log is simply a log with the date, time, activity and
any numbers you were taking. For example :
Hottest Time of Day
42 Degrees F MAB
38 Degrees F MAB
Have one for each day of data. If you have only one day of
data collection, then you need only one sheet.
2. Safety Procedures : List the safety procedures that you
followed during the course of the experiment. Your textbook is a good resource for finding safety procedures.
