Me N. You
February 25, 2000
Explain what you are going to be reading about or implementing for your semester project. Say why this
topic interests you. Convince me that this topic is exciting to you and that you will learn a lot from working
on it. Specify exactly what your goal is for the project, in terms of what you want to learn from doing this.
Your proposal should be at least three pages long. You may use LaTex or another formatter like MS
Word or WordPerfect.
Just as an example, here is a figure that I refer to as Figure 1.
