This is our second progress paper. This progress paper should focus on your final Energy Balance project outline, and illustrate that some research and drafting is being made.
Your second progress paper should be 2 pages in length, and this should only be an outline with bullet points. You do not need to start writing, but you need to demonstrate that you are outlining your project. For the Energy Balance project you need to submit a brief outline that includes an Introduction, Methods and Materials and subpoints, Results and subpoints, Discussion and subpoints, and Conclusion. If you have read all of the information I provided you, you will notice that I have already basically provided an outline for you in the Final Project module files. Therefore, you will also need to illustrate that data has been gathered, which can include tables, graphs, calculations, etc. Again, this only needs to be an outline with bullet points. You also need to include a reference or literature cited page.
Grading will be based on completeness of your outline and demonstration of progress being made towards your final draft, as detailed by the general rubric below. To help better evaluate your paper, you need to upload your paper as a pdf or word file. Progress papers are worth 10 points total. Late submissions are penalized per day/late.
