Midterm Presentation

At this time I had discussed my senior project with both Dr. Scott Schneider and Dr. Valentina Tobos.  I knew Dr. Scott was going to be my adviser since we had previously discussed what type of physics project I was interested in doing at the 2013 Midwest Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics in Urbana-Champaign,…

The Scientific Method and Scientific Literature Research

The scientific method was reviewed and a much more strong emphasis on literature research. Learned how to research using various databases to see how the different databases can produce different results using the same search criteria. While I’ve looked at some journal articles before I did not perform any specific research until at this time…
