For this assignment you will write a paper relating a topic in physical science to your career field or other real-world practical application. You must use at least three different sources, and cite them in the paper and on a separate references page.
Your paper must include the following:
- Present relevant background or contextual material.
- Define terms or concepts when necessary.
- Explain the focus of the paper and your specific purpose.
- Reveal your plan of organization.
- Build your essay around points you want to make (i.e., don't let your sources organize your paper).
- Integrate at least three sources into your discussion.
- Summarize, analyze, explain, and evaluate referenced work rather than merely reporting it.
- Move up and down the "ladder of abstraction" from generalization to varying levels of detail back to generalization.
- If the argument or point of your paper is complex, you may need to summarize the argument for your reader.
- If prior to your conclusion you have not yet explained the significance of your findings or if you are proceeding inductively, use the end of your paper to add your points up and to explain their significance.
- Move from a detailed to a general level of consideration that returns the topic to the context provided by the introduction.
- Perhaps suggest what about this topic needs further research.
- Personal Evaluation
- State your opinion in the first sentence of the paragraph.
- In the body of the paragraph, give at least three reasons why you think and feel as you do. Include both facts and examples to support your opinion.
- End with a sentence that sums up and restates your opinion.
- Suggest what, if any, improvement should be applied to your topic.
- Write an appreciation statement regarding the connection of physical science to the world in which we live; discuss how this topic has helped you in your career or everyday life.
- Most importantly, this must be in your own words.
- References(on a separate page)
- Cite at least three sources using APA format.
