How to Set Up a Legal Scientific Notebook

by

Introduction

In this lesson, the student will learn how to set up a legal scientific notebook at the start of the school year using an ordinary 200-page composition notebook. The format of the title page, table of contents, lab pages and the lab notebook policy will also be taught to them. The purpose of this lesson is for students to be more organized in managing data and writing results. This will also simulate how real scientists keep a similar notebook to input their results and have a concrete evidence of their work for possible patent or copyright issues in the future.
