Recommended format for summer REU report?

  1. Jul 20, 2011 #1
    Im looking for a recommendation on my summer write-up. I am beginning the rough draft phase and am not sure what would work best or if there is a typical way of doing this. I know it is mostly a matter of preference and its really not a critical decision at this point. In terms of content I have a pretty good idea of what I want to talk about. I just need help with the formatting. I plan to use LaTeX and incorporate some postscript images and mathematica plots and what not.

    I am not sure if I should have a double-column set up like many professional publications or just stick with single?

    How much indention around text?

    When including Mathematica material, would it be a better idea to include everything (declarations, computations, commands) so it is clear how I accomplished things? Or include only the images and write out a discussion of the equations, etc used?
