21
The Written Report
  • Work together
  • Length is not important
  • Fulfill the requirements (B.S takes time to write
    !)
  • How should it sound?
  • Read a technical report (How does it sound?)
  • How should it look?
  • PROFESSIONAL

22
The Oral Presentation
  • Graded on basic elements and effectiveness of
    style
  • Tomorrows Session (Prof. Wittels)
  • Presenting styles cannot be taught... They must

23
Weekly Quiz
  • Individual Effort
  • 15-20 minutes
  • Stresses concepts of the week
  • Do the reading!
