Although for short essays the introduction is usually just one paragraph, longer argument or research papers may require a more substantial introduction.
The first paragraph might consist of just the attention grabber and some narrative about the problem.
In the introduction above, the opening line does not serve to grab the reader’s attention.
Instead, it is a statement of an obvious and mundane fact. A more effective attention grabber may point out a specific, and perhaps surprising, instance when adults use math in their daily lives, in order to show the reader why this is such as important topic to consider.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this or any other university publication, the university reserves the right to make changes in tuition, fees and other charges at any time such changes are deemed necessary by the university and the USM Board of Regents.
The Board of Regents has authorized the university to charge a student's delinquent account for all collection costs incurred by the university.
Proper money management today involves knowing interest rates, balancing checkbooks, paying taxes, estimating my paycheck, and budgeting to make ends meet from month-to-month.
The discount for Federal employees and their spouses and eligible dependents will be applied to out-of-state tuition and specialty graduate programs. This discount cannot be combined with the Completion Scholarship for Maryland community college students or the Pennsylvania Completion Scholarship.
The normal collection fee is 17 percent plus attorney and/or court costs. Requests for services (for example, transcripts, diplomas, registration) will be denied until all debts are paid.
Please see the Policy on Student Classification for Admission and Tuition Purposes for specific details about residency requirements.
