Your response should reflect graduate-level writing and APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Suppose you have pennies, nickels, and dimes in your pocket. If you pull out four coins, what amount of money could you get?

Guidelines for working on the problem that match the homework rubric:
1. Okay, you know what the problem is asking as this is like what we did in class. So write a concise restatement of the problem in your own words. Think about what you are given in the problem, what you know about the problem and what you are trying to figure out.

2. Find some solutions as we did with three coins. You know there are several from what was investigated in class. What is the largest you could have, the smallest? Thinking about things like this will give you some ideas of what you might do next.

3. Use pictures, manipulatives, charts, and/or graphs to help explain your thinking and move along to a solution. After you have some solutions, arrange them in some systematic fashion so that you can look for patterns.

4. Identify and describe any patterns that you discovered in the problem. Even if you think they might not help you towards a solution – it may be helpful to write them down.

5. When you find a pattern, you can use this to generate more solutions. It is much easier. However, check to make sure that the solutions you generate with your pattern really are solutions. If they aren’t, go back and take a careful look at your pattern. This is an important step!

6. Find all the possible amounts of money you can have when you pick four coins out of your pocket (remember the coins in your pocket are pennies, nickels and dimes). How do you know that you have them all?

7. Provide a complete justification for your solution. That is, explain why your solution(s) makes sense.

8. Discuss what worked, what didn’t work and what you did if you got stuck. Did you get help from anyone or anything? What did you find or learn in this problem that you didn’t think about before? (This is your reflection.)

First, you will choose a public debate that has at least two opposing sides (please do not reuse your Toulmin essay topic). As before, you need to research that topic in order to narrow the topics scope, so it can be easily discussed in 1000 word essay.

Note: Consider your audience as laymen in the field who have only general knowledge of your topic.

This essay must include a minimum of five sources.  Three should be peer-reviewed sources, preferably from the APUS databases.  From the library welcome page, click on Advanced Search at the bottom of the page and then check the “peer reviewed” sources box filter.

The following should clarify the term “peer-reviewed”:  http://youtu.be/rOCQZ7QnoN0. You may use eBooks; however, as discussed in your textbook, books generally are not as current as peer-reviewed articles.  You may also use primary sources (interviews, statistics, etc); however, these primary sources should be obtained from experts within that field.  If you cannot find strong sources for your chosen topic, then change your topic. If you have a question about the validity of a source, please contact a librarian: [email protected]

Make sure to include the following sections in your essay:

an introduction and claim,
and a conclusion.

Make sure your essay includes the following:

The background for your chosen topic,
A discussion of both sides of the debate, including core values or warrants underlying their arguments
Your common ground (Rogerian) solution/claim
An explanation of how that common ground claim can resolve the core issue for both sides.

After you have written your essay, please make sure to revise the content of your essay. Lastly, be sure to edit your essay by checking grammar, format, and smaller technical details. Please make sure your essay is written in third person.

Anesthesia shadowing is highly encouraged by the South University Anesthesiologist Assistant Program; however, the program understands that, in some areas, COVID19 has impacted applicant ability to safely obtain shadowing hours. If you have been unable to directly observe the day-to-day practice of anesthesia in the OR through shadowing, what alternate methods have you employed to gain information on the profession? And, why do you believe you are suited for the practice of anesthesia?

Assignment 1 Research Report Proposal

The assignment is to propose a topic for your Research Report. As we are located in Toronto, and Toronto urban issues are in the news daily and are the subject matter of numerous studies, it is recommended that students choose a Toronto related topic, but other cities can also be proposed to your TA. The issue chosen should be analysed using one or more of the theoretical and analytical approaches introduced in the text and the lectures.

The research report proposal should set out what topic you propose to study, explain why it is significant, state what questions you hope to answer, and identify a preliminary bibliography of relevant academic literature sources (at least 8) needed to prepare your paper. The Final Report is not intended to include original research from primary sources such as interviews or surveys, but should be based on existing published research and data. Start with the bibliographies and suggestions for further reading at the end of the relevant chapters in the text. Your proposal should be not more than 1,200 words.

Topics and Questions:

1. Issues of transportation and mobility are currently a major topic of debate in the Toronto area because of worsening congestion and demands for improvements to public transit services. These issues can be examined based on recent debates about public transit, mobility, car dependence, congestion, urban form and sustainability. What are the main transport and mobility issues in the Toronto area, how do these affect different populations and areas of Toronto unevenly, and what solutions are proposed to solve them?

2. Issues of housing affordability and homelessness. How have Torontos housing markets changed in recent decades, and what is the significance of those changes? Why is housing in the Toronto area so unaffordable? Why are there so many homeless people in Toronto, and what responses to the homelessness and housing affordability problems have been proposed and attempted in the past?

3. Social Space. How have the socio-spatial patterns of Torontos population changed in recent decades, why are those changes occurring, and what is their significance? In particular, why is Toronto seeing increased socio-spatial polarization? What approaches have been developed to study these changes? How should we understand these changes to Torontos social geography?

4. Urban Environment. Toronto has a number of pressing environmental issues, including flooding, air pollution, toxic waste contamination, protection of greenspaces and natural heritage systems. How are these issues understood, and what is being done about them? What research has been done measuring the significance of these issues? Who is involved in trying to mitigate these issues?

5. Urban Planning. Identify an important planning issue in Toronto, and the policies that have been proposed or implemented in response to it. For example, there are many major redevelopment projects ongoing in the Toronto area, such as the Toronto Waterfront and Portlands, intensification of the downtown core, and redevelopment of public housing projects such as Regent Park and Lawrence Heights, which are interesting topics for analysis. Who is involved in the project, why is it being carried out, what are the arguments for and/or against the project, or for modifications to it?

The memoir, Ak, and the play, King Lear, show situations of great personal change. (Wole and the market women, for example, from the memoir, and, in the play, Lear, Cordelia, Regan, Goneril, Edmund, Edgar and Gloucester).  At the memoir’s end, society is changing, whereas in the play, society is largely the same as at the beginning of the work.

Explain how forces of societal structure or change sometimes are accented, but sometimes are diminished by these works attention to personal situations.  How is the comfort or discomfort of characters related to or separated from societal conditions?  How are those conditions considered or not considered to be problems?  How is the level of drama in these works connected to societal issues or personal ones? Cite precisely from the texts in supporting your points.

Surv World History/Civiliz II Section 5CG Fall 2020 CO

The last major wave of imperial expansion in world history developed in earnest after 1875. It came to an end, more or less, with the outbreak of World War I in 1914. The rationale for empire was, as we saw in Unit 6, diverse. Economic motivations for markets, labor, and raw materials, evangelical religion, racism, and an Enlightenment-inspired visions of a civilizing mission were among the principle arguments public officials gave for their imperial projects. There was not one argument, of course, but many. The real world does not exist in black and white. Shades of grey are critical to understanding the past and present. The purpose of this essay is to encourage students to think critically about the complexity of official justifications for imperialism and to explore how these rationales could support or contradict one another.


For this essay, you will draw on the primary source documents linked below, especially the section entitled Motives and Attitudes, to explain the arguments European elites gave for their imperial projects at the end of the nineteenth century. Use a close reading of the online textbook to provide historical context for your argument. Your essay should explore the relationships among various arguments for empire, i.e., the way, for example, racism may have buttressed calls for civilization or how evangelical impulses may have undercut or supported economic arguments. Take at least two of the arguments you think are most important and explore their interaction.

Expectations and Criteria for Success:

You should base your discussion with the information in the Unit 6 course content module as well as the two sources linked above, but outside research is allowed if needed.  Outside research should be supplemental to the two primary sources attached to this essay.  DO NOT use Wikipedia as a source.  As always, be sure to keep track of where you find your information so that you can provide citations in your final essay.  Essays should be typed in 12-point font with a simple, clean font such as Times New Roman. Use 1″ inch margins on all sides and double-space the text. Your essays should each be around 1000 words.

Successful essays should be carefully organized, with strong thesis statements and specific evidentiary support.  In your introduction, briefly describe the context of the documents that you are analyzing. The body of the essay will focus on analyzing/explaining two justifications that can be seen in more than one document/context. Combine evidence from multiple primary sources and context from the class text to make an argument about how Europeans justified imperialism. And note that the best essays will also explore the connections between the two justifications (how did they support or contradict each other?). Conclude by assessing how these justifications shaped 19th-century imperialism. Be sure to revise and edit carefully. Click here to review the General Essay Guidelines included in your syllabus.
