These web documents contain supplementary material for laboratory work in the introductory physics course. They provide a point of view which some laboratory manuals lack. A large part of this material commonly goes by the name 'error analysis'.
by G.F.C. Searle - Cambridge University Press
G. F. C. Searle made notable contributions to the development of laboratory physics and theories of electromagnetic mass. This book was based on the notes prepared by Searle for his practical physics classes at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge.

A condensed handbook, or an extended glossary, written in encyclopedic format, covering subjects in statistics, computing, analysis, and related fields. It intends to be both introduction and reference for data analysts, scientists and engineers.

These experiments should form part of a physics course which includes class discussions and demonstrations. They were used for several years in a beginners' course in practical physics. The materials and procedure have been worked out in detail.
