Abstract Tips

This message is coming from Dave and Shantanu, graders for cs110 this semester. Looks like you have abstracts due tomorrow, and we figured we'd send out this list of tips on writing abstracts. We put this list together last semester, after grading the first abstract....it is pretty much the list of common problems we found with the abstracts, and should be helpful guidance for you.

In any case you should use the tips in this list in conjunction with the web page which explains the specific requirements (as written by Prof. Erlinger) for abstracts. Also you will want to take a look at the sample abstracts. All this useful information can be found at
Any quotes below come from that page.

Dave and Shantanu
