### Media Research Project Presentation

This is to be an individual project.
Choose one media article related to mathematics or science research.

During your presentation,
briefly summarize your article and explain why you choose the article that
you did. In addition, find at least two related scientific or mathematics
research journal articles
[ie technical articles that went through a rigorous academic peer review
process before being published - if you are unsure about whether something
is a technical scientific or mathematics research
journal versus a media source, ask Dr. Sarah and also check for
information about the editorial board and publishing process and intended
audience]. Briefly summarize what you found in the journal articles and
then be prepared to participate in a related class discussion.

In addition,
turn in a typed reference list that mimics the reference style found
in one of your journal articles. Be sure to include a reference
for the original media article and your related journal articles, and to
use professional notation as appropriate such as
x^{2} instead of x^2 (in Microsoft Word, you can use Equation Editor
via Insert/Object/Microsoft Equation for more complicated notation).

Your grade will be based on your typed reference list and
the clarity of your scientific/mathematical discussion, as well as the
clarity and depth of your formal reflection WebCT posting to Dr. Sarah.
