Submitting your final paper requires you to upload the paper twice to two locations:

By submitting your paper, you agree that the paper is a new paper written expressly for this class, not a recycled paper from a previous class, and that you have not plagiarized or otherwise cheated on the paper.

Remember that the final paper is worth 300 points instead of the normal 200 points.. You also should review the MS Word Assignment to make sure your paper uses the formatting tools correctly. The "How to Use MS Word" handout can help you to learn how to use the required features.
