ADVICE

Many students find it easier to start with their drawn work (ie. a relevant graph) and then write their text initially in rough). The drawn work could either be held in place with a paper clip (ie. a small diagram in the middle of some writing) or mounted on a clear page which will be separate from the text.

All material that you obtained from a book or secondary source should be referenced. If you copy a small section of text or convert a table into a graph you should say where that information came from. You only have to give the authors surname, date published in brackets and page number.

`..........22% of farms in the Lake District are owned by people who do not live there.` Waugh (1989) p102

The full reference should be written out in your list of resources used. This is normally the last page of your project and should be in alphabetical order (by author).

It is important that you keep a rough resource list and add to it when you use a new resource. It is very time consuming to try and put this information together when you have finished the project.

Figure numbers should initially be in pencil (light). You may want to insert more items later on. All figures in chapter one should start with a one, chapter two with a two etc. (ie. 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4).

All figures need to be explained or referred to in your written work. They should either be incorporated into your writing (the bit where you referred to it) or be on the very next page.
