Should be turned in with a cover in the following format:
Title Page: Should include the title, name, class, and date on its own separate page.
Abstract Page: An abstract is a very short overview of your paper. It should be able to stand alone. Meaning if I just read your abstract, I should be able to get the jest of it. This section should be 75-100 words single spaced, not subtitled and on a separate page and not indented.
Introduction: This should be a general introduction it should include background information, and should be like a funnel going from broad to specific. This section should tell the story of what you are trying to get across and the rest of the paper will give support to that.
In general, the paper should include some of the information below (in the appropriate topic and section):
Method: You will highlight one of the procedures/experiments from one of your peer reviewed scientific journal sources. You should include:
- Types of cells used for research
- Experiments and procedures
- Special tools or equipment if any (sometimes new)
Results: You will highlight the results of procedures/experiments from the scientific article you choose to describe in the Method section. Here there should be data in the form of Tables, Figures, Graphs etc… They should be labeled as such with legends and should also be discussed in the text of the paper.
