Structure of the report

Your report should be organized around the following sections. Aim your report at explaining the project and your work on it to other students. I am not the audience for your reports. Your project report should contain enough information so that a group of students with similar backgrounds could duplicate your work.

This part of the report should state clearly what the project is about, including a brief statement of the problem and a summary of your work. This part should contain enough information to give a reader an idea of what you did. It should also describe the structure of the rest of the report, so that a reader interested in specific information knows where to find it.

This section should contain a more detailed description of the problem. It should also describe alternative approaches you considered in tackling the problem and give reasons why you chose the approach you did.

This section should tell the reader what you did. It should contain any data you obtained and describe any references you consulted. It should be detailed enough that another group could duplicate your work.

Results and Conclusions.
In this section, you should compare the experimental results with the predictions of your formula. This is also the section where your mathematical model should be described. You should also criticize your model, and make suggestions for its improvement.
