## rhetorical analysis

First, you need to listen to, view, and read the following four texts:

To compose a successful rhetorical analysis, you must use quotations, paraphrases, and summaries to make connections between your ideas about the piece of writing you’re analyzing and the specific examples within the piece of writing that best clarify, illustrate, and support your ideas.  You should have already watched Daytona State College Professor Harun Thomas in his Quote Burger presentation. For more information about quoting, paraphrasing, summarizing, citation, and documentation spend some time exploring these resources:

1. Write your own sentence that incorporates a quotation from anywhere in one of the four texts listed on the top of this discussion. List what text you chose, and make sure to use the advice from Professor Thomas.
2. Paraphrase the same passage from which you drew a quotation in #1 above. Use the resources above to help with paraphrasing effectively.
3. Summarize the section of the article from which you drew a quotation (in #1 above) and a paraphrase (in #2 above). Use Summary Writingas a guide, as you’ve done in past discussions.
4. Using MLA (Works Cited) or APA (References), build a documentation entry for the text you’ve chosen for this discussion. Use the following resource to help with this part of the discussion: DSC Library Services InfoGuide – Citation and Documentation. There are also resources for documenting sources on the Purdue OWL site.  Don’t worry about the hanging indent if you have trouble formatting. The discussion board is not set up in the same manner as a word processor. Just place the documentation directly below the paragraph. Also, make sure to let us know what resource(s) you used to create the documentation entry.

## PROBABILITY

Write each probability as fractions in simplest form and/or round four decimal places.

PART 1 – PROBABILITY

I. Use the data set for gender and lied about your age

A. Create a table from the data collected.

B. Based on our sample, find the following probabilities

1. What is the probability that a randomly chosen Statistics student has lied about

their age?

2. What is the probability that a randomly selected Statistics student has lied about

their age given that the student is a female?

3. What is the probability that a randomly selected Statistics student has lied about

their age given that the student is a male?

4. Determine whether the events of being female and lying about your age are

independent or dependent. Explain your reasoning.

PART 2 – DISCRETE PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTION

II. Use the data set for number of pets.

A. Construct and graph the discrete probability distribution from your data set.

Note: You can use software (Excel, online sites, etc.) or draw them by hand using

graph paper.

B. Does your discrete probability distribution fulfill the two conditions it must satisfy?

Explain.

C. Find the mean, variance, and standard deviation of the distribution in part A above.

Round to the nearest tenth.

D. Find the following probabilities.

1. Using the probability distribution in part A, find the probability of randomly

choosing a household that does not have a pet.

2. Using the probability distribution in part A, find the probability of randomly

choosing a household that has more than 2 pets.

PART 3 – BINOMIAL DISTRIBUTION

III. Use the data set for the Registered Voters

A. Find the probability that a randomly selected Statistics student is a registered voter.

B. Construct and graph the binomial distribution for the number of voters when 10 students

are selected.

C. Find the mean, variance and standard deviation of this binomial distribution. Round to

nearest tenth.

D. If 10 Statistics students are selected at random, what is the probability that all of them

are registered voters?

E. If 10 Statistics students are selected at random, what is the probability that less than 5

of them are registered voters?

F. If 10 Statistics students are selected at random, what is the probability that at least 8 of

them are registered voters?

## Math Autobiography

Math Autobiography Assignment Instructions

Overview

As we all know, some people enjoy mathematics while other cringe at the thought of it.  Many of these feelings were developed from one of your mathematics teachers. Whether you enjoy mathematics or not, your students will look to you for mathematical knowledge and mathematical confidence.  For this assignment, reflect upon your past mathematics education.  How did it affect you, in your subsequent math classes, in other content areas, and your confidence in your own learning abilities?

Instructions

Write a mathematics autobiography by describing your past study of mathematics and your success or failure in the subject. Discuss your feelings about mathematics at the elementary level and at the higher levels. Identify any experiences, whether positive or negative, or mentors you have had in learning mathematics.

Your paper must be 2–3 pages and written in current APA format. Writing in first person is acceptable for this assignment. Cite your references if you used any for this assignment.

## asthma

Use the following information to formulate your analysis

An 11-year-old boy complains of wheezing and difficulty â€œgetting enough air.â€

He notices it more when he is playing baseball and symptoms improve when exercise activity stops. He says that the symptoms are getting worse and the symptoms are even occurring at rest.

His mother says the child is allergic to cat dander and his next-door neighbor in their apartment building recently began sheltering cats for the local humane society.

Auscultation demonstrates wheezes on forced expiration throughout all lung fields.

1.      The cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes that result in the patient presenting these symptoms.

2.      Any racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning.

3.      How these processes interact to affect the patient.

Answer the questions using APA format â€“ title page, introduction, body of the paper, conclusion, and a Reference page.

Include two scholarly references.

See the attached template for Walden MSN students. Submit your answers in 1-2 pages (not including the Reference page).

## Patho

Develop a 1- to 2-page case study analysis (This is a paper) in which you:  â€¢ Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described.  â€¢ Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.  â€¢ Explain the process of immunosuppression and the effect it has on body systems.

A 42-year-old man comes to clinic with chief complaint of pain, redness, and swelling of his right calf. He states that he had been working in his yard using a string trimmer when the trimmer slipped and cut his leg.    He cleaned the wound with water from the garden hose and covered the wound with a large Band-Aid.    Several days later, he developed fever to 100.6Ëš F and chills and noticed that his leg was swollen and red.

He comes to the emergency department for definitive care.

Answer and Analysis these topics: Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described.  Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.  Explain the process of immunosuppression and the effect it has on body systems.
