During the three-month trial period, I provided assistance with ten projects, two schemes, and one meeting.


1) We hyphenate words that come together to make an adjective, i.e. "three-month period", "end-of-week report".


2) In general, you should write out all words under 11.


3) In a list, you should include the comma before the 'and'.  It tells the reader that the schemes and meeting weren't grouped together.
