In-Text Referencing

This will be an in-text citation from Encyclopedia Britannica database:
Gravity, also called gravitation, in mechanics, the universal force of attraction acting between all matter.
            We now need to write this in our own words:
            Gravity is defined as the force that attracts matter towards
            other matter. 
This will be an in-text citation from Mocomi website:
Force is strength or energy applied towards any object for physical action or any movement. 
We now need to write this in our own words:
Force is strength or energy that influences the action or movement of an object.

Your Turn for In-Text Referencing

1. Go to MyBib and create a new project called 7 Sci - Parachutes

2. Then go to this this website. Find and copy a sentence that would be useful in your assignment (if you're not sure what you need yet, any sentence is fine for now). 

3. Paste your sentence (called an 'in-text citation') into a new Word document & CHANGE IT INTO YOUR OWN WORDS

4. Go back to the website, and add it to your MyBib by clicking on the MyBib extension (little book icon) in the top right of your screen. Press 'Save to project' and it will send the information to MyBib. 

5. In MyBib - Find  'COPY IN-TEXT CITATION' under your source, hover over it, and click on the little clipboard icon which appears to save to memory .

6. Paste the citation at the end of your quote (in-text citation) in Word. (Move any existing full stop to the end of the sentence if necessary).
