water contamination


Review the Final Lab Report instructions in Week Five of the online course or in the “Components of Course Evaluation” section of this guide as well as the Sample Final Lab Report. I would also recommend you review Week Two’s Laboratory, “Water Quality and Contamination,” before beginning this assignment. You are then to write a complete outline for your Final Lab Report. The outline must contain:

  1. Title Page Include the same information as the Final Lab Report (see instructions in Week Five).
  2. Introduction Provide an outline of your introduction including background, objective, and hypothesis, as well as all sources that will be used to back this information.
  3. Materials and Methods Provide an outline of steps used to conduct the experiments as well as all sources used to conduct the experiments.
  4. Results Provide an outline of results, including any tables and graphs that will appear in your Final Lab Report
  5. Discussion Provide an outline of discussion, including meaning of findings, outside factors effecting results, and future experiments based on results.
  6. Conclusions Provide an outline of the summary of all work.
  7. References Provide a list of references in APA format.

Note: The abstract should not be included in the outline as it is to be written last after the entire paper is fully written. The outline must be three to five pages in length and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least four scholarly sources (at least two of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library) in addition to the textbook and/or lab manual to support your points. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar. Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
