ORDER OF FINAL PROJECT REPORT
Mathematics 451



 
 

  1. Title Page - in the proper format
  2. Abstract - updated from first version submitted
  3. Table of Contents - optional
  4. Body of report
    1. Mathematical variables must be italicized (except Greek, Hebrew and Cyrillic letters).
    2. Use 1 1/2" left margins,  1" top, bottom, and right margins.
    3. Each figure should be placed within the text on the same page as the first reference to it, or on the page following the first reference.
    4. Use any consistent standardized footnote method.
    5.  Do not wrap equations.  All longer equations must be centered on their own lines so that equations do not begin on one line, then continue on the next.   For example,

    6. sin W  +  32 cos X  -  21 sin Y + 65  =  21Z.
    7. Align relation symbols such as  =, >, or < when you have a list of expressions.  For example:
    8. (a + b)2 - (a - b)2 = (a2 + 2ab + b2) - (a2 - 2ab + b2)
                     = a2 + 2ab + b2 - a2 + 2ab - b2
                           = (a2 - a2) + (b2 - b2) + (2ab + 2ab)
      = 4ab.         
    9. Write in complete sentences - this includes the equations!
    10. Do not use l (lower case L) as a variable if it looks like 1 (one) on your printer.   (More generally, avoid any variable that is easy to misread such as lower case L's.)
  5. Bibliography with proper number of references
  6. Appendixes - optional; serially labeled  A, B, C,...
