There are 3 parts to the final project:

1. Topic - You are to pick a topic for your final project before the end of week 3 and submit it

to the proper folder.  No two students will be allow to have the same topic; therefore, first

in.  See "FINAL PROJECT" below to see how to pick a topic.

2. (Optional) Outline and Resources - You are to turn in an outline and resource list for your

project before the end of week 5 and submit it to the proper folder.  Part two will not be

accepted unless part one is turned in.

3. Final Paper - you are to turn in the final paper before the end of week 8 and submit it to

the proper folder.
