The group turns in only one report for the whole group.
All members in a group receive the same grade.
While it is no obstacle for productive group work to have both
stronger and weaker group members, the active members in a group
usually get tired pretty quickly of "freeloaders";
I encourage groups to omit names of "freeloaders"
on the cover page.
Your report must have a cover page.
The cover page lists the project title,
the due date and the full names of the members of your group.
All pages of the report must be stapled together.
It is recommended to type or word-process your report when it is possible,
but it is not necessary.
Legible handwriting is sufficient.
It is not acceptable to just staple together a bunch of math
formulas and some computer graphics printouts.
You are supposed to explain in words how you proceed
in solving the problems the project addresses.
If you attach computer printouts, you have to explain their meaning.
Axes in computer graphics printouts usually are not labeled,
and sometimes not scaled. You must include these labels and scaling.
Working in a student group can be
productive, efficient and fun. Make sure these adjectives
apply to your group work. Each individual team member owes it to the group
to show up at group meetings, and to be a responsible member of the team.
It is in my experience detrimental to the group grade to split
some of the work into equal parts to be done by the group members individually.
It is a good idea to give each group member a
special role: try to designate e.g. a "scheduler"
to set up meetings, a "keep-on-track" person and a
"note taker" during meetings, a
"final checker" etc.
Do not expect to be able to complete a lab or a project in one shot
the evening (night?) before the due date.
Your group report has to be turned in on the due date. Late reports will not be accepted.
