Your semester writing assignment is a 3-5 page essay that will include:

- a topic overview
- a literature survey
- an annotated bibliography

The topic overview will outline the general topic of your paper. The literature survey and bibliography will contain 3-5 papers outlining their connection to your chosen topic. Think about a 3-5 page introduction that I could hand to next year’s tutorial students to introduce the topic that you choose.

Your topic should be one of the following:

- Outline the intellectual connections between Hilbert, Goedel, and Turing
- Outline the social aspects of Turing’s homosexuality
- Outline the halting problem and why Hilbert sought a solution for it

You may propose another topic if you are so interested.

Note that 3-5 pages is a serious restriction. Not one word shorter or longer!

I have created a submission page on Blackboard if you want to use it. Altermatively, you can email me your final paper.
