Let's Reverse Engineer the Process
Using the mock experiment provided, let's look at the final project check sheet in reverse. I recommend that you find each area in the Science Fair Packet for definition, steps, and other information.
F. Bibliography (References) and E. Acknowledgements/Credits
Google Doc (Citing Sources)
Use one or more of these tools to try Creating a Sample Bibliography with the Packet Recommended Sources. Also remember, to use the word Bibliography (center) at the top of the page. Citations should be listed in alphabetical order by the first word.
Selecting Sources Reminder(s)
Utilize a Recommended Database or Evaluate the Source (What #?)
E. Ideas for Future Research, Conclusion, Data Analysis and Discussion, Experimental Procedure, Materials List
Conclusion (Packet info.: Answer investigative question/prove or disprove hypothesis/ summarize and evaluate procedures/include supporting data/Explain how the data supports/suggest changes: procedures and/or possibilities for further study)
"Some descriptions of plagiarism include cheating, using someone's else's work as your own, using someone's work inappropriately, and/or not giving credit to sources used."
