Term Paper

This paper is to be on a Computer Science topic of interest to you. All topics must be approved. You should submit a list of 3 topics, in order of your preference. I will decide which of the three topics I'd like you to write about.

The paper is worth 10% of your grade, so each of your exams will be worth 25% of your total grade, rather than the 30% listed in the syllabus for the regular sections.

The paper is to be a minimum of 10 pages, done in 14 point font, double spaced (the material equivalent of a 5 page paper). In addition to the ten pages of content material, there is to be a cover page and a bibliography. Please don't exceed 20 pages of content material.

You are to cite sources for your paper using either MLA or APA style. You have already received a handout showing these styles.

You must have at least 5 references and at least 3 of those references must be electronic (web pages, documents from ftp sites, articles from news groups, etc.)

Your paper should be free of spelling and grammatical errors.
