Next: Grading of the Lab
Up: MA 1022 Lab Report
Each of the lab reports is to be completed jointly by you and a
lab partner. You may change lab partners as you wish throughout the
term, however, you and your partner must be in the same section. If you have trouble finding a partner for a lab, please see
your instructor immediately.
Each lab report should consist of two parts as follows:
- Lab Background
Your summary should be one paragraph
that describes the major points/goals of the lab and the mathematical concepts
Note that this should be in your own words and not simply a rewrite of the
lab description. This section should be short and concise. Three to
five sentences should be enough.
- Maple Printout with Answers
All Maple commands used for the lab
should be included. Problem numbers should be included in this section
to indicate which commands were used for which problems. Equations or
plots that are needed for the solutions must be clearly labeled. You
are also responsible for ensuring that the Maple commands are
consistent with your answers. At the end of your Maple work for each
problem, include a short paragraph that explains the role of the Maple
work, identifies the solution to the problem, and draws any
conclusions that need to be made.
strongly encouraged to save paper by printing out your worksheet with
two pages per physical page, using the -N2 flag to your lpr
command. A sample
worksheet from a MA 1021 lab demonstrating the desired format is attached.
