In this essay you will explore a problem related to science and technology and propose a solution. The purpose of a problem-solution essay is to motivate the reader to act on and think about the problem and the solution presented. Using the problem-solution analytical strategy allows you to organize your essay into sections that each serves a different purpose. One section of your essay will present, define, and explain the problem. Another section of your essay will present, define, and explain the solution to that problem. For this assignment, you will use both assigned and outside research sources as evidence to define and explain your essay’s problem and its solution. NOTE: The solution you choose to solve the problem should be based on evidence from your sources, not just your personal idea about a possible solution. Use MLA in-text source citation to give credit to your outside sources & include a works Cited Page listing your sources.
