To establish the scientific concept for the lab you need to do two things:
1. state what the lab is about, that is, what scientific concept (theory, principle, procedure, etc.) you are supposed to be learning about by doing the lab. You should do this briefly, in a sentence or two. If you are having trouble writing the opening sentence of the report, you can try something like: "This laboratory experiment focuses on X "; "This lab is designed to help students learn about, observe, or investigate, X ." Or begin with a definition of the scientific concept: "X is a theory that ."

Materials and Methods takes the reader step by step through the laboratory procedure that the experimenters followed.Ý The rule of thumb in constructing this section is to provide enough detail so that a competent scientist in the field can repeat, or replicate, the procedure.Ý The challenge, however, is to do so as efficiently as you can.Ý This means, for example, not including details that the same competent scientist already knows, such as descriptions of standard procedures that most everyone in the field would already be familiar with.

Objectives: State the purpose or hypothesis upon which the project is based.
Materials and Procedures: Indicate the materials and procedures used in your project. Briefly describe your experiment or engineering methods.
Results: Summarize the results of your experiment and indicate how they pertain to your purpose or hypothesis.
Conclusions/Discussion: Indicate if your results supported your hypothesis or enabled you to attain your objective. Discuss briefly how information from this project expands our knowledge about the category subject. If you did an engineering or programming project, state whether you met your design criteria.

After stating the judgment about the hypothesis, you should provide specific evidence from the data in the Results to back up the judgment. The first key to improving this part of the Discussion is finding specific evidence reported in the Results that you can use to back up your judgment about your hypothesis. The second key is to describe the evidence in such a way that the reader can clearly see that there is sufficient evidence that supports your judgment about the hypothesis. Be specific. Point out specific evidence from the Results and show how that evidence contributed to your judgment about the hypothesis.
