What is reflected in the guidelines?
This document highlights the key points in writing a term paper:
- references and footnotes;
After selecting a topic and finding sources of information on it, the student should be familiar with the methodological recommendations.
This will allow defining the purpose and objectives of the study, drawing up a project plan, arranging the found materials into chapters and sub-items, and determining the sufficiency of the volume.
Carefully review the recommendations for the structure and design of the course work. In these sections, a detailed description is usually given. The standard sections of the course project are the introduction, main part, conclusion, list of references, applications. Each section should have specific information. Duplication of data is undesirable.
In the introduction, the student notes the topic of research, indicates and proves its relevance, sets a goal and defines the objectives, subject and object, as well a methodological basis.
In the main part, it is necessary to consider the theoretical aspects of the topic. If there is a practical chapter, then it is necessary to demonstrate the ability to transfer this knowledge to life. This is usually done through calculations, analytics, etc. In conclusion, it should be indicated what was considered, and how the goal was achieved, what conclusions the author reached.
Each section should be accompanied by inference, a conclusion that will smoothly lead readers to the following subclauses.
There are requirements for the design of the work:
- font size;
- designation of basic terms;
- tables and other graphic materials.
Particular attention should be paid to the design of footnotes, references and references. Sometimes even a wrong punctuation mark can lower the mark.
Methodical recommendations usually include a design example that facilitates the process of perceiving information, editing a document, preparing work for delivery and protection in general.
