Sample Format for Writing a Lab Report

Abstract This is a concise summary of the aim of the project, the general methodology used, results and conclusions.
Introduction / Literature Review An introduction to the system that you are using, what you were going to do in the experimental part of the report and why.  It should include background on what other studies have been done in the area of the investigation.  Any resource material used to write this section must be cited in the text using APA referencing (Author/date format).  Make sure that the aim of the investigation is very clear.
