Science Book Summaries

Reminder for those who did not take notes:

We will be writing a summary of each book we read over the course of the year. 

Summaries need to include at least three thoughts (paragraphs).
1. What was the book about?
    - This typically should be the largest section of the paper
2. Did the book live up to its:
     - Cover
     - Table of Contents
     - Pictures/Graphs
     - Or any other reason you choose the book
3. Would you recommend this book to a classmate? Why?

Summaries should be typed and be between ½ and 1 page long, single spaced. If you choose to double space your paper, it should be between 1 and 2 pages. 

I've been getting a lot of questions in class about formatting. In response, you must use your best judgement. In the professional world, no one will tell you what size or type of font to use, you must make a judgement call. So, you may use whatever font you like, as long as it is a professional looking academic font (no comic sans, cursive fonts, decorative fonts, or symbolic fonts). Samples are below.

The first summary is due on November 6th
