Template to use for your Final Report

  • You probably need to use Google Chrome in order to make a copy that you can edit.  Safari doesn't let you write into your own coyp.
  • When you open this, in order to edit anything you will need to make a copy.  Have your school Google Doc account open and when you make a copy, give it a name that you will remember.  
  • When you use the template, delete what is written there in ((   )) and write your own stuff.  That is just there to guide you.
