Term papers are basically a regurgitation of all of the research one has done or all of the lectures they've attended. Rarely does a paper end up being original since it is all based on something that has been previously published.
Most term papers are left until the night before they are due by students who have been procrastinating all semester and have realized they now have less than 24 hours to gain anywhere from 25-50% of their overall mark in that class.
Term papers are known as the bain of a student's existence. They are not favored by anyone in their right mind and some students actually choose to go into the faculty of science, which means they have to take math/calculus courses, to avoid having to write these lengthy essays.
