Flinn Scientific Student Safety Contract

LAB SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION/CER GUIDELINES

A scientific explanation or CER includes all of the information listed below (i.e., the bulleted list).

  • A Claim. A claim is a statement that answers the guiding question.
  • Evidence. Evidence is the data, from your lab, that you will use to support your claim.
  • Reasoning. Reasoning is the use of scientific concepts and/or terms to explain how your chosen evidence supports your claim.

Be sure to submit or include an organized data table and/or graphs to provide me with a complete picture of all the evidence you collected in the lab.

Please refer to your rubric for how the paper will be assessed.

Formatting Guidelines:

  • When titling your paper, please put the following in the header of every page, aligned to the right: Your Name and INTRO TO BIOCHEM 806-186. Then begin your paper with our lab title, centered. FYI, all lab titles are listed and hyper linked to their directions below.

  • Your report should discuss your claim, evidence, and reasoning in one page or less.
  • The report must be typed and any diagrams, figures, or tables should be embedded into the document.
    • NOTE: The degree symbol in Google doc is under: choose the "Insert" menu, choose "Special Characters," then choose the "Symbol" drop down menu and "Miscellaneous" drop down menu. The degree symbol is at the top of the symbol screen.
  • In the way of paragraph spacing, please use 1.5 rather than single or double. Also, please indent the first line of each paragraph 0.5 inches.
  • Be sure to write in a persuasive style; you are trying to convince others that your claim is acceptable or valid!

When asked to share your report with me, abiding by the due date is critical.

LAB REPORT GUIDELINES

Once you have completed your research, you will need to prepare an investigation report that consists of three sections that provide answers to the following questions:

Section 1: Introduction and Guiding Question
What question were you trying to answer and why? (Hint: For the "why," refer to the introduction of your lab. This will help you to determine the background information necessary to answer your guiding question. In other words, why is the guiding question important to your understanding of chemistry?)

Section 2: Method
What did you do during your investigation and why did you conduct your investigation in this way?

Section 3: Argument
What is your argument?

Please refer to your rubric for how each section and the overall paper will be assessed.
