Data Tables


All data tables must contain the following elements:


  1. They MUST BE NUMBERED. For example, at the top you will write, “Data Table 1:”
  2. They MUST HAVE A DESCRIPTIVE TITLE (not IV vs DV). For example, “The Effect of Adding Additional Ammonium Chloride on the Temperature of a Solution.”
  3. All columns MUST have headings and UNITS!
  4. They must be created in the word processor. The following is an example on how to do it in Google Docs. If you need information on MS Word, let me know.


Example:


Data Table 1: The Effect of Adding Additional Ammonium Chloride on the Temperature of a Solution.
Mass (g)
Temperature of water before adding Ammonium Chloride (deg C)
Temperature of water after adding Ammonium Chloride
