Intro to Chaos and Fractals: Short Papers
The first paper will be due Monday 22 January.
Here are some guidelines for the short papers.
- Response papers should be around two pages in length.
- Response papers should be in the style of a well-developed journal
entry. You do not need to come to any grand conclusion. It's fine to
raise more questions than you answer.
- The audience you should probably have in mind while writing is:
you, me, and the rest of the people in the class.
- I strongly recommend writing in the first person.
- I'm looking for evidence of critical thought, not a summary of the
- Your paper should be typed or word-processed.
- Explore one or at most two ideas.
- Write about something that interests you.
- Your writing should be clear; use "correct" usage. Grammar and
overall clarity will be part of your evaluation. The writing can be
quite informal, but should still read ok.
- Please hand in your papers on time. If papers are late, I'll
mention this on your narrative evaluation. If you need extra time,
let me know.
- You can always re-write one of your papers.
- Working with a writing tutor is strongly recommended. Rita and
Jen are/were writing tutors, and are both familiar with the topics and
themes of this course.
