Laboratories have laboratory reports written up using Desmos to produce tables and graphs which are then screen captured and integrated into Google Docs. The reports will be submitted via Schoology and marked using rubrics in Schoology. The structure of the reports is detailed in the textbook. Reports are due seven days after the laboratory.
