Failure to read and follow the research paper guidelines will result in substantial loss of points on the research projects.

Research Paper Guidelines

  Sample Reports
The sample reports are based upon the original work of former Math 141 students.  While these students earned an "A" for their work, the reports are provided solely as samples and are not intended to be examples of the perfect paper.  Copying from these samples for completion of your project does constitute plagiarism and will result in a grade of 0.

Detailed instructions for Minitab 16 are available in the handbook linked below.  Access to a tutor will be available in the Student Success Center.  The tutor is not there to hold your hand throughout the entire project, but rather, to answer questions on what you do not understand after referencing the Minitab manual.  Use it.
