Very Important Notes: I am purposely not giving you examples to work from. I want you to think about what a good problem statement would be for a research topic of interest to you. This assignment is designed to get you thinking about a project that you might want to do for this class, but I expect that some of you may change your mind--which is fine. You are not locking yourself into anything by doing this assignment.
