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.
