Text Size: All of the text in this assignment needs to be set in 12-point size. Please resist the temptation to mix and match point sizes. If you doubt your applications intentions, just select all of your text and insure that it is in 12-point size.

Spelling/Grammar Checking: Remember to do your spelling and grammar checking before turning your assignments in. When doing the spelling/grammar checking keep in mind that some words such as mush and must, woods and words, or here and cow, will not be caught by either check. To correct these problems, you will need to proofread your work.

Paragraphs: The first word of the first sentence in a paragraph needs to be indented. At the end of a paragraph, do not insert an extra blank line. The indentation serves as the visual clue that there is a new paragraph.

Page Numbers: Any homework that has more than one page, needs to have page numbers on it. Please place your page numbers on the bottom of the page. In MS Word, use the footer selection and place the page number in the bottom center or bottom right of the page.


Opinion: When a question asks for your opinion, its answer is exactly that – your opinion. Feel free to use your own opinion.

Stating the Question before Answering It: While some reports require that you state the question before your answer, please refrain from this in this class. . If you place the question before your answer, the space that it takes up will not count towards the minimum of 2 pages worth of writing.
