  • 5. Acknowledgements The fourth page is for ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS of who helped. Using complete thoughts and sentences, this is where you thank any person involved in your project.
  • 6. Problem Page #1 (this will be your first numbered page) will be titled Problem. This is where you will write your approved problem. 1
  • 7. Research Source #1 APA Format Bibliography will be written here. Please make sure you are using APA and not any other format. APA is indented after the first line. Skip a line before you start your summary. Summaries need to be in your own words. Printouts of websites, books or other sources are unacceptable. This is where handwritten notes will be recorded from all sources. Only use one page for each source. 2
  • 8. Research Source #2 "Safety of Nuclear Reactors." World Nuclear Association. World Nuclear Association, n.d. Web. 8 Oct. 2013. <http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Safety-andSecurity/Safety-of-Plants/Safety-of-Nuclear-PowerReactors/#.UlQz8iRGmTM>. Skip a line before you start your summary. Summaries need to be in your own words. Printouts of websites, books or other sources are unacceptable. This is where handwritten notes will be recorded from all sources. Only use one page for each source. 3
  • 9. Research Source #3 Helmenstine, Anne Marie, and Ph.D.. "Materials That Glow Under Black Light." About.com Chemistry Chemistry Projects, Homework Helm, Periodic Table. N.p., n.d. Web. 16 Oct. 2012. <http:// chemistry.about.com/cs/howthingswork/f/ blblacklight.htm>. Skip a line before you start your summary. Summaries need to be in your own words. Printouts of websites, books or other sources are unacceptable. This is where handwritten notes will be recorded from all sources. Only use one page for each source. 4
  • 10. Research Source #4 5
  • 11. Research Source #5 6
  • 12. Bibliography "Safety of Nuclear Reactors." World Nuclear Association. World Nuclear Association, n.d. Web. 8 Oct. 2013. <http://www.worldnuclear.org/info/Safety-and-Security/Safety-of-Plants/Safety-ofNuclear-Power-Reactors/#.UlQz8iRGmTM>. This is where the student lists a minimum of 5 sources (more is acceptable) in APA format. At least one source should reflect safety measures that will be followed during experimentation. 7
  • 13. Hypothesis This is where the student writes their approved hypothesis in an if/then format. Absolutely no 1st person should be used, it should be written in 3rd person. 8
  • 14. Materials 8 This is where the student will list all materials and quantities of those materials used. This list can either be bulleted or numbered. This should also include any safety equipment too. For example, if 6 grams of sodium bicarbonate is used, it should be listed as: • 6g Sodium bicarbonate or 1. 6g Sodium bicarbonate ** When instruments are used, the name, model number, manufacturer and settings should be recorded in the lab notebook in the Materials section. **When chemicals are used, the name, formula, purity and manufacturer of the chemical should be recorded in the lab notebook in the Materials section.
  • 15. Procedure This is where the student writes a detailed explanation of how to do the experiment. It should be so detailed that someone unfamiliar with the project could repeat the experiment without any help from the researcher. This should either be numbered or listed as Step 1:, Step 2:, etc. Absolutely no 1st person should be used, it should be written in 3rd person if necessary. Ex. Step 1: Add 3 drops of Sulfuric acid to H2O. Step 1 is not “gather all materials”! It is understood that to begin any project, whether science fair, home improvement project or cooking (to name a few), you would have assembled all necessary items. You may not have to use all three pages depending on the length of your procedure. 9
  • 16. Example for what to do when you make a mistake. numbered I numered incorrectly. 2. If a page needs to be deleted, a single diagonal line should be drawn across it AND a brief sentence or two should be added to explain the page deletion. 3. If an error is made, do not erase or obliterate it in any way. Draw a line through the entry and write the correction as near to it as possible. NEVER write a number or word over another one. Remember –blue or black ink ONLY. ABSOLUTELY NO PENCIL ALLOWED!
