MATH 588, GEOPH 605, CE 697

 Spring 2011


    Each project should include an introduction, methods, results, and discussion section accompanied by tables and graphs illustrating your results.  Follow the basic instructions I gave above for the oral presentation.  In addition, use complete sentences, good grammar and correct punctuation in your mix of equations, formulas and prose. Your report should be written in such a way that it can be read and understood by anyone who knows the material in this course. You will be graded on your written presentation as well as the mathematical content.  

    A one-page executive summary or abstract should also be included at the beginning of each project. Write this in non-technical language for the reader who has an interest in the research question but does not have any technical training. It must state briefly: (1) the research question and why it is important; (2) the methods used to study the question; (3) the findings and what they mean; and (4) what action you recommend on the basis of your findings.
