Each Case Study paper is to consist of the following components:
- Title page and two written pages with no more than 500 words.
- Answers to individual questions (as assigned)
Each assignment will have specific questions you need to address. You should create a sub-headed section for each one.
- References/Appendix (if required)
These are not research papers per se, so you may not have the need to cite outside sources. If you do, however, they should be identified on a proper reference page. Similarly, if you are required to do calculations and choose to perform them on a separate page, you should include them in an appendix.
