Project Report Guidelines


Outline for a Project Write-up


Typed report with a cover page. Paragraph style using complete sentences as if you were turning in an English paper. Grammar, punctuation, spelling, organization, analysis, and adequate detail will be evaluated as well as the mathematics involved.


Excel tables, graphs, and calculations should be incorporated into the paper not attached to the end.


First paragraph of the paper is the introduction. List who was in the group, describe the experiment, how your data was collected, and the tools used. Give as much detail as needed to describe your project for those who do not know what you were doing.


The body of the paper is the analysis portion. It should be at least two paragraphs long and describe your teams’ processes. It should include an Excel generated list and graph of your data, a description of the independent and dependent variables, a description of a reasonable domain and range, a discussion of the model you found including the correlation coefficient, a graph of the data created in Excel, and any other function related topics that are in the project description. It should include answers to any questions asked in the project description. All projects require you to make predictions based on your model. Show the calculations used to arrive at your predictions and discuss whether or not they are realistic. Be sure to discuss anything that may have affected your experiment or data collection.


The last paragraph is the conclusion. It should summarize your project. Include any discoveries and comparisons made in the project.
