Skills that you acquire in one practical experience often transfer to another. For example, it was probably in a math class that you first learned the fundamentals of making a graph. As you apply the fundamentals to plotting theoretical relationships or real data you may discover that different disciplines employ different conventions. Nevertheless, some universal principles apply, such as the location of an independent variable on the x axis.

Each of the pdf resources provided here applies to any discipline, thus they are used by multiple laboratory courses in different fields of natural sciences and engineering.
