At this phase, you have to choose one of the two projects you proposed in Term Project 2, and gather extensive information on it. Because of this, you will NOT be required to submit a polished report. For this phase you may submit hard copies of your raw data in any form (this may include copies from project reports, proposals, computer printouts, screen shots or memos)—See note on confidentiality below. However, if you choose to submit hardcopies, they must be submitted to Professor no later than 1pm Wednesday, April 28. Remember that your objective here is to collect as much data as is necessary to support your arguments and analysis in the term project Part 4, and NOT to prepare a polished report.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
