(499)Summary of Week Three

Hi all,

I hope you all had a fruitful week. This week we talked about how to use online sources to find articles and books you need for your capstone project, and how to prevent plagiarism.

Do take advantage of the Interlibrary loan system, and don’t be shy if you need anything. If you are not sure whether you are plagiarizing, look at the article I gave you, use that as a check list.

You assignment this week is to search for an article online, and write a one-page report on it. Please use the template I gave you, or any template that has the following components: abstract, introduction, main body, conclusion and reference. Get used to the format, and this will make your life a lot easier next semester.

If you didn’t have all the components in your report on Fermat’s last theorem, please go back and add the missing part(s) in your report. I will be reading your reports over the weekend, and we will peer review your reports in our class next Wednesday anonymously. Please bring your peer review for paper sheet: peer_review_paper. And when you review, please be kind and constructive.

Finally, some of you told me some stories in Fermat’s last theorem were really sad, so here is a happy story related to the theorem.

Alright, that’s it for now. Let me know if you have any questions!
