Assignments in this class are designed to have you explore some personal connection you have with life science. For the second assignment, I want you to find an example of science being used in your personal World. You can use any example as long as you can find 2 web sites to use for references. Be creative, the example can be anything in your World. For example, I am interested in the science that is connected to cooking. Many authors have written about this topic, so it would be easy for me to find references and some examples about how cooking and science are connected. Please DO NOT use my example of cooking for your paper.
The essay must be 1 page in length, typed, double-spaced with 1-inch margins. Spelling and grammar will be taken into account for grading. Write your paper in a word processing program and then cut-and-paste the paper into the submission window. The formatting will disappear when you cut and paste into the assignment window, that is OK.
You must use at least 2 web sites on the internet as references for your paper. Use these sites to help you support your topic. Please be sure to include your web address citations in the body of your paper where you use the information. YOU MAY NOT USE ANY FORM OF WIKIPEDIA AS REFERENCES IN THIS CLASS! USE OF WIKIPEDIA AS A REFERENCE WILL EARN YOU A GRADE OF ZERO FOR THE ASSIGNMENT!
As a way to ensure originality of your work, this class uses the Originality Checker from Turnitin. An assignment submission on Turnitin generates an Originality Report. The Originality Report is the result of comparison between the text of the submission against the search targets in Turnitin’s resources – directories, repositories, journals, etc. Any matching or highly similar text is detailed in the Originality Report. The Originality Checker will compare your paper to all papers that have ever been turned in to this class, internet databases, scientific journals, and other publications. Along with your grade for the assignment, you will receive an Originality Report that indicates the Similarity Index of the paper, based on the amount of matching or similar text that was detected. If you are unsure of what plagiarism is, you should watch this
