Write a 10 Page Technical Paper on a Technical Topic of Your Choosing
You are required to write a 10 page technical paper on a technical topic of your choosing. You must submit an outline for approval by the end of Week 3. It must include a detailed outline of main points and subpoints.
You must submit a rough draft at the end of Week 5. This is to be a complete paper, meeting the page requirements – not a partially completed paper. Points will be deducted for short or incomplete papers. Your rough draft will not be graded by the rubric, but helpful feedback will be provided to indicate where you are falling short. You may correct any deficiencies before resubmitting your final draft at the end of Week 8
You must submit an Index by the end of Week 6. The Index must include Headings, Sub headings, page numbers and outline of what you will be using in your final paper. You can use sources outside of your text. Please reference resources used to create your Index.
