Week of Mon, Oct 19 - Mon Nov 2, 3:45 pm Magnet Office, proposal due (Do not procrastinate! Plan your time and get it done. A deadline in adult life does not mean wait until the last minute; it means get it done before that date.)
We do not have class this week because of Field Day and advisement activities in the afternoon for underclassmen. I will meet with more than half of you one-on-work to work on your Research Concept Maps. Please read through very carefully the Research Proposal ppt below; I would ordinarily have done this in lecture this week. It is absolutely critical that you read through these very specific directions for writing your Research Proposal.

Preparing for framing research survey link
Even if you cannot answer the surgery questions well, answer them. This is feedback for me and for you about where you are in the research process. You can work with a partner or small group to do the survey, but each individual must submit their own. Below is an example from a survey I submitted (my block and name are to the left and not visible in the image.)
