introduction to dentistry assignment

Dear Prof Maha,
can you please explain again on how are we goin to do our introduction assignment?

i know that for mid term maximum pages are 2 pages, and for final maximum pages are 4 pages.
but what are the things that we must include in the assignment? is it based on the lectures that we had for the past weeks? does it have any format we have to follow as in do start with an introduction and end it with a conclusion? for the mid term and final.

Dear Farah,

You need to include in the 2 assignments the following:

Mid term assignment: describe what the following specialities are concerned with and how can they help people be relieved of their dental problems. Describe also what procedures they use and what instruments (as much as you know or have heard in lectures). The specialties are Pediatric Dentistry, Orthodontics and Prosthetic Dentistry.

Final assignment: cover the same points for the following specialties: Periodontics, Conservative Dentistry (Operative Dentistry, Endodontics and Fixed Prosthodontics and the specialty you are going to cover in the last lecture IN SHA ALLAH- whatever it will be). Include a paragraph about which specialty (among all you know- not necessarily the ones in this assignment) you find most interesting and which one you would like to be your specialty after you graduate IN SHA ALLAH. Give reasons for your choices.

Format for both assignments: Use type font Times New Roman, size 12, spacing 1.5, margins 2.5 all over. Justify right anf left. Use sections to cover the topics included, in paragraphs. Do not add titles to sections/ paragraphs.

I hope this covers everything. Tell me if there is anything you do not understand.

After you finish, submit on the course website which I will create today. Submit individually as Word file. No resubmissions are allowed. Grade is acceptable/ not acceptable. Notice that submission alone does not mean that your grade will be "Acceptable". You need to do a nice job.

Dear Prof Maha,

I would like to know: what do you mean by "sections"?

"Use sections to cover the topics included, in paragraphs. Do not add titles to sections/ paragraphs."

Second thing that i wanna know that,are the pages of assignments limited?

Thirdly,can we refer and include the informations(from other sources)apart from the lectures?

Last but not least,when is the due date of submission?

thank you.

A section consists of one or more paragraphs.

Yes, the pages are limited as we said before at the beginning: 2 for midterm, 4 for final.

Yes, definitely include other information from trusted sources and add them as references. In coming courses, we will learn how to do this in the right way. For now, put these as much as you can so that at least you credit people with whatever they have said or done.

Due date for mid term is August 9th. Final is August 19th.

2.5 cms not inch. If your computer is set to inches, use 1 inch all over.

What do you mean exactly? The margins will be as you set them. You need to set them to a number. 2.5 cm top, bottom, right and left is acceptable. If you do not know how to do that, we can check it together. I am always around you know

the title page with your name, assignment name and submission date does not count towards the total number of pages of the assignment so you can submit for example 3 pages: 1 title+ 2 assignment. You can add pictures but be careful they are not too heavy because the maximum size of the file to be uploaded can not exceed 2MB

You will know when it is graded. Shortly In Sha Allah you will see your grades and how they look.
