 DATA Lab is the transformed version of the traditional,​ algebra-based physics laboratory that focuses on developing students’ laboratory practices. As most of the students enrolled in the course are non-physical science majors, the goal of this course is for the students to develop research skills unique to a physics laboratory that can be utilized throughout the rest of their studies. DATA Lab is the transformed version of the traditional,​ algebra-based physics laboratory that focuses on developing students’ laboratory practices.

- 
-Throughout the semester, students will be explore classic physical systems as a tool to increase their overall laboratory skills (i.e., experimental design, data analysis, collaboration,​ and scientific communication). In this course, students will be guided and supported through their development of these practices by emphasizing\\ 
-  -How to carry out experiments effectively by collecting data while attempting to minimize uncertainty.\\ 
-  -How to connect the results obtained experimentally with theoretical models in lecture while recognizing the limitations of each.\\ 
-  -How to thoroughly document the experimental design, data collection and analysis, the results, and the discussion/​conclusions.\\ 
-  -How to report and communicate findings obtained in the laboratory.
