This is a very abbreviated version of what the Element Project should look like.
Be sure that you use the subscript/superscript format where necessary and that the entire
paper is in the SAME font.

PROPERTIES OF AN ELEMENT
You will write a report on the element listed below. For this element, you will provide
information listed on the attached page plus additional information specified below in
written form. The entire report must be submitted electronically as a Microsoft Word
ATTACHMENT to an e-mail. The file name must have the following format:
element name_your last name.doc.
Send the document to [email protected] The subject line must contain the element name
and ccgp07. The file must be received by 10 PM on November 3 but you may certainly
submit the report earlier. No project will be accepted late for any reason! The graded
results will be returned electronically to the same e-mail address the report was sent from.
Element ____Sodium________
The project must contain in the order listed:
1)
Cover sheet with element name or formula and your name
2)
This page
3)
All the data listed in the table on the attached page, in the table with proper units
You may use any sources (books, periodicals, Internet sites) you wish to
collect the data but these sources must be properly cited and the
references available in a bibliography (see #5). Each piece of data in the
table must have the source number in parentheses that indicates its citation
number.
This table must be typed with all formulas in proper format
(subscripts/superscripts). A blank project page/table file is available at:
http://academic.pgcc.edu/~bgage/ElementProject084.doc
4)
Narrative description of the uses, importance, biological significance (if any)
historical information, and any additional interesting information for the element
This should be written in paragraph format with proper grammar and
spelling. Outlines or lists will not be given credit. Information must be
properly cited. Plagiarism will result in a zero grade for this project with
no chance to earn the lost points through other means.
5)
List of references or a bibliography, properly cited
Go to the following web site for required formatting:

Sodium is an element essential for life and prevalent in our environment in rock and
mineral samples. “Sodium comes from the English word "soda" and from mideval Latin
sodanum which means headache remedy. Sodium comes from the English word "soda" and
from mideval Latin sodanum which means headache remedy.” (5)
