Writing a term paper is an integral part of studying at a higher or secondary specialized educational institution. Both freshmen and senior students perform such projects. The subject of a term paper is essential. Usually, research is done on specialized subjects. Such research helps to understand and assimilate the material.
In order to well or perfectly protect the term paper, it must be:
- properly done.
Thus, in the course of checking a term paper, not only the student’s research activity is assessed, but also his ability to make coursework in accordance with accepted standards.
Rules for the design of coursework is what we will discuss next. After all, the design of coursework is very important. Otherwise, the teacher can send the project for revision or reduce the grade for its implementation. Agree, it is very disappointing, having conducted a qualitative study, to get a lower grade deserved just because the course project design does not meet the standards. That is why, in this article, we will discuss how to formalize the course, as well as consider the basic requirements for the design of course work. Also, we will look at how a good sample design can help.
A term paper should have the following points:
- title page;
- introductory part;
- main section;
- final part;
- list of sources used;
Each of these items is made in accordance with the standards.
A term paper is as follows:
- It should be performed only on one side of A4 paper. The only exceptions are illustrations and tables which are drawn up in a special section.
- The text should be black, and the line spacing is 1.5, font size – 14, font type – Times New Roman.
- Border width requirements: left – 3 cm, right -1 cm, upper and lower – 2 cm.
- Be sure to align the text width.
- Indent at each new paragraph is 1 cm.
The size of the project depends on the course on which the student is studying. So, first-year students write projects of 25-30 pages, and older students write 30-35 pages.
