- Reporting -

A record of your messing around with heat & temperatures might include a short written description of each set of temperature measurements. Whenever measurements are made this data must be recorded carefully and accurately, with units included for clarity. Tables are useful for repeated similar measurements. If your work includes mathematics, to make the logic of your calcuations clear, first record the formula you used, then show the numbers used to evaluate the formula, and finally record your answer.

Each of the activities in this section has different reporting possiblities. You might use a table for reporting on your findings about sensors, graphs for your calibration curve, and for reporting on heat flow.
