 +===== Notebook Rubric =====
  
 +==== General Grading Scale ====
 +
 +4.0 (96-100%) - Perfect, I cannot think of anything else they could have done\\ ​
 +\ \ \ \ \ //All categories and aspects are present and no further improvement is necessary//​\\ ​
 +3.75 (93-95%) - A very good notebook, they just have a couple of things they could improve on\\ 
 +\ \ \ \ \ //All categories and most aspects are present but there are several aspects that have room for improvement//​\\ ​
 +3.5 (87-92%) - A good notebook, could use some more work\\  ​
 +\ \ \ \ \ //All categories are present but there are some missing aspects or significant improvements to be made//​\\ ​
 +3.0 (78-84%) - An alright notebook, they have some good stuff but it needs a lot of improvement\\  ​
 +\ \ \ \ \ //Most categories are present but are missing some aspects. Some aspects are good but others need a lot of improvement//​\\ ​
 +2.5 (68-74%) - Not great, they left out very important pieces of information completely and what they have needs a lot of work \\ 
 +\ \ \ \ \ //Many categories or aspects are left out and what is there needs major improvement//​\\ ​
 +2.0 (65%) - Very weak notebook, they turned something in but that's about it\\ 
 +\ \ \ \ \ //Most categories are nonexistent and what is present is done poorly//​\\ ​
 +0.0 (0%) - Did not turn in a notebook

 +=== Experimental Design ===
 +  * Communication:​ Clearly record the steps and results of the experiment.
 +  * Scientific Process: Proceed intentionally through the experiment.
 +    * Communication
 +      * Diagrams are labeled and clear
 +      * Procedure is clear and detailed enough to reproduce the experiment
 +      * Observations are noted and related back to the concepts
 +      * Predictions are listed and explained
 +      * Reasoning/​motivation shows why the experiment was carried out in this manner
 +    * Scientific process
 +      * List goals for each section of the lab
 +      * Did they plan ahead?
 +      * Did they work systematically?​ And intentionally?​
 +      * Multiple trials
 +      * Attempts to improve accuracy
 +
 +=== Discussion ===
 +  * Uncertainty:​ Discuss uncertainty in measurements,​ models, and results.
 +  * Results: Present results in a clear way and support claims with evidence.
 +    * Uncertainty
 +      * Measurements
 +        * Recorded with uncertainty
 +        * Discuss sources of uncertainty
 +        * Uncertainty is quantified and explained
 +        * Worked to reduce uncertainty
 +      * Models
 +        * Compared models to observations
 +        * Discussion of limitations/​assumptions of model
 +        * Corrections to model based on experimental results
 +    * Results
 +      * Plot (if one exists)
 +        * They graph their data in a way that makes sense
 +        * The plot tells us something significant about the experiment
 +          * Not just, x and y are linearly related
 +        * There is a best fit line and a slope
 +        * There are error bars on the data points
 +        * Error bars that make sense
 +        * They graphed their data in an interesting way that tells us something about the experimental parameters
 +      * Conclusions
 +        * They discuss the motivation of the experiment
 +        * They summarize the process
 +        * They discuss the result
 +          * Slope or other significant result is given with uncertainty and compared to some expectation
 +        * The significance of the result is discussed
 +        * It is tied it to the bigger picture (implications)
