Sources of Error

I just created a short article titled, "Sources of Error" for students to read and annotate.  This is because students often confound mistakes with sources of error, thinking that both are bad.  Sources of error are present in any laboratory activity, and understanding them demonstrates that you understand how variables affect the outcome of your experiment.  Sources of error should always be discussed in a lab writeup or lab summary.  You can see it here.
