HELP!!! I have to write a ten page research paper for my Bio class and the due date is coming up and for some reason i can't come up with a topic.
These are the guidelines my professor gave us.
Come up with a hypothesis based on previous observations or information. This is easier if it pertains to a topic of interest to you. You then need to decide how to test your hypothesis. The accumulation of data can take many forms including observations and measurements, survey documents, record reviews, etc. If you are testing a particular variable, be careful to identify other possible variables and control for them. You will also need a control group if you are comparing populations or testing the effect of something on a population, whether it is mineral, plant or animal.
After you have accumulated sufficient data, having reached a preset time frame, or number count, you will analyze that data to determine what conclusion you can draw from the data collected. You should use graphs and/or charts to graphically show data results as well as a narrative. The graphical displays will assist you in drawing your conclusion.
After the analysis of the data, you will be able to determine whether you have a conclusion that supports or refutes your hypothesis. This will be the final statement of the paper.
The problem with this is that i have to test the hypothesis. That means any far out topics such as stem cell research, virus identification etc. is out because i don't have the materials needed to test it. Please help!!!! any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks.
