Spring 2017 not offered
Mastering the art of effectively communicating ideas and results in written form is vital for success in science. Clarity and simplicity are of paramount importance when communicating complex scientific ideas. This course provides an example-driven approach to developing these science writing skills. Example tasks will require students to master the ubiquitous abstract, and further expand on the styles needed for scientific articles, research proposals, theses, and writing about science for a broad, nonscience audience. Students will be pressed to grasp the importance of the iterative revision process of successful expository writing. Students will complete a final project that ideally connects to independent research work.
