Natural Sciences (GEN106-NSC 201)
Course Learning Outcomes [1-17]

Introduction
After the end of the main stages in the creation course of natural sciences it's
contented of four parts, Scientific methods, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. You
are going to choose one of the topics below to make research about this topic.

1. Project Instructions:
Try to ensure that your report contains the following elements:
a. Title page - This should include the project title and names of all group
members. You can also list the name of your teacher.
b. Executive Summary - It is a very brief summary of the report's contents. It
should be about half a page. This is one of the most important components of
the report. It should begin with a clear statement of what the project is about
so that the nature and scope of the project can be understood by a lay reader.
c. Acknowledgements - It is usual to thank those individuals who have provided
particularly useful assistance during your project.
d. Contents page - This should list the main chapters and (sub) sections of your
report. Choose self-explanatory chapter and section titles and use double
spacing for clarity. You should include page numbers indicating where each
chapter/section begins. Try to avoid too many levels of subheading - three is
sufficient.

e. Body of report - The central part of the report should consist of three chapters
detailing the actual work undertaken during the project. You need to discuss
the content of these sections thoroughly with your teacher.
f. Conclusions - The project's conclusions should list the things which have
been learnt as a result of the work you have done.
g. Appendix and Bibliography - Use appendices to contain information which
is peripheral to the main body of the report. You should try to bind all your
material in a single volume if possible. Document the data collected from a
text book, a magazine, or a website identifying its sources while using the
appropriate form.

2. Group members:
a) You are requested to join a student group; each group consists of 3-4 students.
b) Each group should work independently of the other groups; groups can take
same topic but must be different contents.
c) Send to your instructor the topic name you chooses and member's name.

3. Project Submission:
Model: in addition to the hard copy, students should submit written reports in
soft copy through the Model system which is available online at
http://ect.ac.ae/elearn/
Each group has to submit one soft copy of the project to ECT Model website
before 21/12/2014.Each group has to submit a soft copy (CD) and hard copy of
the project to your teacher before 21/12/2014.

4. Project Assessment:
This project contains 15% of your total marks for this course. The assessment
of the project will be undertaken by your teacher. After that, teacher will
attend your presentations.

5. Project Presentation:
As part of the assessment you will be required to give a presentation of your
project to your teacher. Each group presentation will be timetabled for
between 10 to 15 minutes. The presentation is assessed separately and is a
compulsory component of the project. The teacher will not allocate a mark for
a project unless there had been a formal presentation. The objective of the
presentation is to find out exactly what you have done.
