Essay Responses: All questions need to be answered in essay format (must be typed, doubled spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font, with 1″ margins, and all sources must be sited).
Mathematical Responses: Students must show all the formulas and all procedures. Answers only will not be accepted, make sure to show all your work. Answers must be typed, double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font, with 1″ margins).
Ignore what is stated in the lab manual, all I need is in this description.
Introduction. About one page in length. Describe the background and rationale for the study, citing relevant research papers. Finish by stating the aim of the study.
Results. Present the experimental data using text, tables and figures. Ensure actual data are presented (not just p-values) and indicate statistical significance of findings. The same data should not be presented in both figures and tables. Do not repeat all the data that are set out in the tables or figures in the text; use the text to emphasise or summarise the important observations. Do not discuss the findings in the results section.
Discussion. The results of the study describe the ‘what?’ of the research study; the discussion describes the ‘so what?’. The purpose of the discussion is to interpret the results and not just to recapitulate them. In other words, what do the results mean? And why are they important? It is normally about 4 to 6 paragraphs long and should start with a statement of the main findings of the study. Always keep the aim of the study in mind when writing the discussion. Explain your data and its interpretation in the context of other published work in the area. The strengths and limitations of the study should be discussed. You may wish to comment on related unanswered questions and possibilities for future research. Finish with a succinct concluding paragraph.
References. Think about the quality of the sources that you reference. Peer-reviewed scientific journals are the best sources. Avoid referencing websites unless absolutely necessary. You should aim to cite about 20-30 (relevant) references in your manuscript. References should be cited in the text using the Harvard (name, date) format. Some examples: “….. it is well known that blue is a colour (Smith and Jones, 1990)…”, “…this is in agreement with the findings of Jackson et al (2009)…”, “…. this finding has been widely reported (Laurel, 1984; Abbott and Wise, 2003; McDonald et al, 2007)…”. All references cited in the text and only the references cited in the text should be included in alphabetical order in the References section in the following format:

Tables. Tables are inserted after the references. They should be referred to in the text with Arabic numerals, e.g. Table 2. Each table should report actual data (not just p-values) and, where appropriate, indicate the statistical significance of the findings. Standard deviations or standard errors for the data should be reported. Each table should have its own self-explanatory title. Each table should be presented on a separate page.
Figures. Figures are inserted after the Tables and should be referred to in the text with Arabic numerals, e.g. Figure 1. Error bars should be included. Each figure should have its own self-explanatory Legend. Each figure should be presented on a separate page.
For this assignment you will need to complete the following:
