Use skills from last week
Learn how to save ALL data sets with automatic file names
You are encouraged to wander off the path-to-be-beaten. You know how we grade. Explore and learn.
Last week we learned how to use the MCC DAQ cards
Three weeks ago, we learned how to save data to a file
You must frequently save data sets WITHOUT overwriting them. Some will be mistakes, etc., but just save them all. The secret to this is to have automatic filename generating code and to take good notes in your notebook. In today's world of lots of disc space (and tomorrow's world of even more), this is a good strategy
Keep in mind the maximum sampling frequency that you learned last wek

Take data sets AND save them automatically with automatic filename generation (so files are saved, not overwritten, Good practices, Use the time and date string to create filename, Save a corresponding screenshot of front panel, Take a photo of your circuit and put in your notebook for reference, When you have a meaningful dataset, specifically link to it in your notebook (keep all of the datasets, just ignore the ones you think are garbage and / or make note that they are garbage in your notebook)
Is the cutoff frequency what you expect from RC value? (f = 1/ (2 pi RC)
