Group Project

This assignment is worth 20% of your overall grade.

  1. Prepare and submit a polished paper describing your work. Use these Latex style files if you are writing in Latex (which is *the* way to write nice looking papers) or this Word template if you insist on suffering through producing something somewhat less elegant. Your paper should look like a conference paper, including Title, Author Affiliations, Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results and Conclusion (Bibliographical references are optional for this, but do include them if you have any).
  2. Prepare a polished oral presentation, including slides, that communicates your work. Your presentation should take about 12-15 minutes and allow 2-5 minutes for questions (a rough guide for slide preparation is about 1 slide per minute). Practicing in advance makes for a much better presentation. Send me an email telling me which day (April 7th or 9th) you would like to present your work to the class. First come, first served.
  3. Email me a thoughtful and honest evaluation of the contributions of your group members. For each, include a score from 1 to 5 indicating your evaluation of their work (1 meaning they were a valuable member of the team that made significant contributions to the project and were good to work with, 5 meaning they contributed little and were difficult to work with). If you would like, you may also include any clarifying comments, etc.
