ASSIGNMENT 1 STRUCTURE
In this assignment cover page usually includes course code and name, semester, assignment title, student name, and student ID.
Abstract is one of the important parts of reports, research papers, and academic assignments. The abstract is often the last item that you write, but the first thing people read when they want to have a quick overview of the whole paper. I suggest you leave writing the abstract to the end, because you will have a clearer picture of all of your work.
A good abstract should has one well-developed paragraph that is coherent and concise, and is able to stand alone as a unit of information covers all the essential academic elements of the full length paper, namely the background, purpose, focus, methods, results and conclusions contains no information not included in the paper.
