Potential report topics, Put your name by the one you want. Attach your report in Wiki form under the indicated link. Note that your report should be suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia. If one already exists you have to option to make a significant addition to the report that is there. You are permitted to actually put your report in Wikipedia and make the world a better place, but you might want to have the rest of the class critique it before you do so.

You are also required to make an oral report. Your reports must be understandable to your peers in the class. Since you will have little time for your presentation, please make a solid, coherent starting point rather than trying to tell us a little about all of the subject. The written report will be more complete.

NOTE ALSO that written reports are due a week before the last day of class.
