If you do NOT have a model for your dissertation submitted yet, please take the time to try to create one. Contact the Professor otherwise. For this assignment, you need to identify 2 variables related to your area of study (preferably two additional ones to the ones identified in Module 3), then find at least 3 scholarly articles that used each of the two variables and fill out the attached table with the information requested. Note: You may end up with 6 studies, if these variables were not used together in the past. Make sure the articles you select use some type of regression, path analysis or Structural Equation Modeling. Use the module 5 SLP (MS Excel) Template and fill out all the information. You will be asked to describe or state the following for EACH article about your selected variable: Note these questions are already in the Template no need to copy them.

Volume and surface area are often compared by manufacturers in order to maximize how much of something can go inside of a package (volume) while keeping how much material is required to create the package (surface area) low.

Directions: Complete each of the tasks outlined below. Task 1 Volume and surface area are often compared by manufacturers in order to maximize how much of something can go inside of a package (volume) while keeping how much material is required to create the package (surface area) low. Pick a product that might be packaged in the shape of a rectangular prism. A rectangular prism has three dimensions: length, width, and height. The surface area of a rectangular prism can be found using the formula SA = 2lw + 2wh + 2lh. The volume of a rectangular prism can be found using the formula V = lwh. Write an expression for the ratio of surface area to volume for the figure. Choose an appropriate length, width, and height for your package so that it can fit the product you are shipping. Using these dimensions, what is the ratio of surface area to volume? Task 2 John, Rick, and Molli paint a room together. a. Pick a reasonable amount of time in which the three friends can paint the room together. Also pick a reasonable amount of time in which John can paint the room alone and a reasonable amount of time in which Rick can paint the room alone. b. What is the hourly rate for John, Rick, and Molli (when working together)? Use rooms per hour as the unit for your rates. c. What is the hourly rate for John? What is the hourly rate for Rick? Refer to the amount of time you determined in which John and Rick can paint the room alone. Use rooms per hour as the unit for your rates. d. Write an equation comparing the group rate to the sum of the individual rates. How should the group rate and the sum of the individual parts compare? Use parts (b) and (c) to help you write the equation. e. What is the least common denominator for the equation you found in part (c)? f. Solve the equation and determine how long it will take Molli to paint the room alone. Task 3 Suppose you are having a birthday party at the local bowling alley. You are trying to figure out how many people you can afford to invite. a. The number of guests you can invite to your party varies inversely with the price per bowler at the alley. Explain what this means. b. How much money are you willing to spend to host this bowling party? c. Set up an equation that shows the inverse relationship between the number of guests at your party and the price per bowler. Your answer to part (b) should be part of this equation. d. Research two local bowling alleys. Record the price per bowler at each of these two alleys. Calculate how many guests you will be able to invite to your party at each of the bowling alleys. Which alley would you choose for your party? Why?

Communication and Culture

The theme that we\’ll be investigating for this learning unit is \”Communication and Culture.\” Therefore, the options from which you\’ll choose your paper topic all relate to how various forms of communication shape our culture\’s ideas and the resultant effects on individuals and/or the larger society. Choose one of the following topics. You will then write a paper in which you incorporate your own analysis with information and analysis derived from research: Write a paper in which you investigate the effects of one or two common forms of current electronic communication and interaction on social behavior and psychological development. These can include text messaging, blogging, online social networking (Facebook, Twitter, etc), role player gaming, etc. The goal of this analysis should not be to merely describe these forms of communication. Instead, you should seek to develop an analysis as to how they influence the way we think and interact in ways that go beyond that which is easily observed. For example, you may explore how these impact one\’s perception of relationships, the concept of friendship, the distinction between private and public information, perceptions of privacy, etc. You may also consider how these impact non-electronic socialization (i.e. face-to-face conversations, public interactions, etc). These are just few of the social/psychological effects to consider. Allow your research and your own thoughtful analysis to go beyond that which is already well-known about this topic. Write a paper in which you engage in a thoughtful analysis of a genre of music in terms of the words used. What attitudes/ideas are being expressed through this choice of words? What motivates the artists towards these words/attitudes? What cultural need makes these words/attitudes appealing to certain listeners? Write a paper in which you analyze the messages sent through popular culture (tv, film, music, advertising, trends, etc) about one particular gender. Discuss the effects of these messages on the social behavior and psychological development of younger people of this gender. Write a paper in which you analyze how the popular culture influences ideas about beauty among either women, men, or both. Discuss the effects of these messages on the social behavior and psychological well-being of those addressed. Write an analysis of the role of the media in American political discourse. This may include looking at how political discourse occurs on cable news programs, talk radio, the mainstream press, etc. Beyond that, however, it may also be useful to look at the intersection of comedy and political commentary via modes such as The Daily Show or The Colbert Report. Write an analysis of the influence of the internet on U.S. politics. This may include looking at the influence of the blogosphere, social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc), YouTube advocacy, fundraising, calls for action, etc. Research You are required to utilize at least 3 quality research sources, cited properly via MLA Format. You are highly encouraged to avoid partisan or clearly biased sources. Instead, seek sources that provide thorough, probing, and intellectually honest analysis. You are highly encouraged to seek out high-quality books or articles from the Academic Databases, as these will provide the best level of information. Make sure that all of your online sources (from the general internet via Google searches, etc) meet the requirements as indicated in the lesson on \”Determining the Legitimacy of Online Sources.\” If you do not engage in a sufficient amount of quality research, your paper will lack the intellectual depth to achieve the level of composition and critical thinking necessary for this assignment. Thus it is important to not only seek out excellent sources, but also to give yourself the time necessary to find them, read them, and decide on how to respond to these sources. Quality writing and thinking always begins with a quality research process. You must include proper MLA in-text citations and a Works Cited Page in both the 1st draft and final draft of this assignment. Paper Requirements This paper must be typed, double spaced, font= Times New Roman 12. This paper will be at least 1000 words in length. This generally equals at least 4 complete pages. This page count does NOT include the title page or Works Cited page. Do not exceed 10 pages. If you do not meet the minimum length requirement, you will not earn a passing grade on the paper. Any plagiarism on this paper or any of the steps in the writing process will lead to immediate failure of this course, so please do not make that mistake. You must utilize proper MLA Format, including MLA Format in-text citations AND a proper Works Cited Page N.B.: It is for ENC 1101 Class. Thanks for the first paper and thank you for your comprehension.
