How to Write Good Conclusions.

The following is only a suggestion of how to write your conclusions. You can decide to use another sequence, as longas it is complete. DO NOT be repetitive; state your conclusions only once.

In the first 1 or 2 paragraphs you should:

1. Start with the aim (Itis a good idea to read the practical sheet first before you start writing)
2. Explain theory, for example what is diffusion and osmosis and what youexpect to see or obtain in the practical. (rephrase your hypothesis)
3. Analyse your data, your calculations, compare the data, look for trends orpatterns in the graphs. Mention numbers only when it is appropriate in order to compare. DO NOT copy results from the table (that is what the table isfor).
4. Make solid, clear conclusions and explain them using theory. Consider the errors and strange results when making conclusions. Sometimesconclusions cannot be made because results are not clear. (this does not result in a lower mark).
5. Mention any strange results and why they could haveoccurred.

In the next paragraph you should:

1. Analyse the procedure you did. Did you do any mistakes? This is the error analysis. There could behuman error, in measuring, or there could be mistakes in using different balances for example.
2. State any limitations you had. For example, did yourequipment allow you to collect appropriate data?

In the last paragraph you should:

Make suggestions to improve your procedure and your errors.
