Course Materials

C198 Senior ThesisOverview
  • Two Parts to Class
  • Research Work
  • All Other Requirements
  • Research Work Requirements
  • Mostly between you and your advisor
  • Grade from your advisor provided you meet all the
    other requirements
  • Time Split about 1 unit of work to fullfill
    Other requirements, so research work should be
    equivalent to 2 units (typically 6 hours, but
    your advisor is the judge)

5
Non- Research Requirements
  • Attend Chem 198 Meetings
  • Todays
  • Proposal Presentations (1 or 2 days)
  • Pre-Final Presentation Meeting (Tentatively
    Scheduled for Nov. 21)
  • Final Presentation (Graduation Event/Poster
    Session OR December 5th afternoon Event)

    seminars
  • These meet Fridays, 1 to 2 PM in Sequoia 338

  • Should be present for FULL SEMINAR
  • You get credit for attending, only if you sign in
    to the attendance notebook and put down Chem 198

    phone use during seminar)

Non- Research Requirements cont.

  • Talk to your advisor about the presentation
  • Get draft to advisor about 1 week before
    presentation
  • Plan on 1 minute per slide, but practice to see
    time needed
  • Keep text to a minimum
  • Use Powerpoint to prepare slides

Non- Research Requirements cont.Presentation
Textual vs. Graphical
  • Studies of interpersonal communications show
    that
  • 55 comes from facial expressions and body
    language
  • 38 comes from vocal quality or tone of voice
  • 7 comes from content, the actual meaning of the
    words

From Scientifically Speaking, The Oceanography
Society

    format
  • For my students, I start with the grade
    submission date and work backwards

    due Dec. 19th, and completed draft version due
    Dec. 12th
