Final edits; Friday deadline

Hi folks,

this is coming along. Some final edits are needed to wrap it up.

Your figure captions seem, to run Fig 1 through Fig 3 and then start over at Fig 1 again - let's fix that and also add captions to the handouts:

Formatting figures[edit | edit source]

Any photograph, map, diagram, or handout that is embedded in your wiki counts as a figure. Tables should be handled differently.

Adding numbered captions to your figures can simplify your writing. You can refer a reader to a picture as simply as this: (Fig 1). No need to say see below or to the right of this text, particularly when the figure may move depending on the window size in which the page is viewed. So, I suggest captions like this: Figure 1. Enough detail following the figure number to orient the reader to the image. Figure captions do not work well in the Rich Text editor, so it may be worth turning that off to edit captions. The following image and caption was added to this page using this syntax:[[Image:RainbowHypothesis.jpg|Figure 1: Students generating hypotheses|thumb]]

Figure 1: Students generating hypotheses

Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Figures}}''from your page.

I really liked this one. It was impressive to see what the third-graders came up with and that in turn demonstrated very clearly that they understood the concept.

Spelling[edit | edit source]

Your page contains spelling errors. To improve it, please spell check. If you use Firefox, it contains a spell checker. Alternatively, edit the entire page, copy and paste the content into a word processing document, fix the spelling (being careful not to change any formats in the document, and then paste it back into the wiki. Don't forget to save your changes! Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Spell}}''from your page.

Final Edits[edit | edit source]

Some tags were automatically added to your new page when it was established. Once you have made changes in response to the editorial suggestions you should remove them. Once they have been removed your assignment will be graded.

Tags to remove[edit | edit source]

Edit your page; turn off the rich text option and remove the following pieces of text: ''{{WIP}}'' ''{{S@W}}'' Once those tags have been removed, it will signal to others that you have made your contribution, and that they are welcome to modify your page and improve upon it.

If you have not already removed this section, do so now.
