I would like you to work on the project in groups, but if you desire you can do it individually. For me, group sizes of 3-5 work best, but again I am open.
The first phase of the project will be a short (about 1 page) proposal. This will allow you to begin thinking about a particular application while we discuss topics in class. It will also allow me to approve the project ahead of time. The proposal should state which process or processes you plan to analyze, who your contact person will be, what data you plan to collect and/or analyze, and why you have made the choice you have. The proposal will be due on Tues., Jan. 27.
The second phase will be a report of the significant findings on your part. As stated above, the report should synthesize all of the material discussed in class. I want this project to be interesting and exciting to you. The material will best be learned by trying it out yourself in a "real-world" environment. Have fun with it.
The project will be due the last day of class.
