Class Project

Here are some suggestions for your class project and report.

  1. Give the class new scientific information. After all, this is a science class.
    1. Avoid emphasizing a description of some phenomena. For example don't build your project on a description of the north Atlantic deep circulation.
    2. Explain the new science. For example, why is the north Atlantic circulation important? What is new beyond what you learned about the circulation in class?
    3. What are the scientific issues?
  2. Keep the subject narrow.
    1. You can't describe much in 10 minutes.
    2. Instead of writing about global warming, write about the iron hypothesis.
  3. Write a clear introduction to the paper and what you will describe.
  4. Don't refer to "some scientists".
    1. Clearly state who they are.
    2. Give names and institutions if possible.
