• Pick a topic involving one of the electromagnetic radiations [radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible, ultraviolet or x-rays] about which you are interested. The paper must be your work. Plagiarism will not be accepted.
• Get your material from the Internet, documenting each source you use in the end notes section. Use superscripts in the body of the paper that refer to the proper end note. The end note section is essentially a bibliography with numbers in numerical order rather than alphabetic order When you use another’s material give proper credit. You may quote just don’t pass it off as your own. Your paper should not be one long quote after another. Read the material first from various websites. Take notes and then write your paper from your notes. Anytime you need to include information that is not common knowledge, give a reference.
• Concentrate on the physics of the radiation. For instance, if you were to choose X-rays, describe what they are, how they are produced, what they are used for, the benefits and drawbacks to their uses. Don’t go into long drawn out discussions of different x-ray machines or film development or radiology training. Think physics!
