Using the Web

You are encouraged to use the web for your report. Here are some advantages to doing this. The main disadvantage is that equations are not easy to include.

  1. Including plots, even color ones, generated by Maple is easy to do.
  2. You and your partners all have access to the material.
  3. It is easy for your instructor to monitor your progress, answer questions, etc.
  4. Web documents are very useful for keeping track of what you did as you do it. I use the web in my research as a kind of Journal of what I did. When the time comes to write the paper, I have all the information in front of me and I don't have to rely on my (shaky) memory.
