SC200-1: Explain basic scientific principles and their limitations.
GEL- 3.01: Use experimental inquiry to inform problem solving.
Each and every day, you are faced with having to make split-second decisions, and the need to solve random problems that you encounter. In this Assessment, you will create a PowerPoint presentation to explain how you would use the scientific method to solve the following scenario.
Scenario: You have agreed to take care of your friend’s dog; Buddy, while she goes on a trip to Antarctica. On your two-hour trip to take your friend to the airport you get so caught up talking about her upcoming adventure that you do not have any time to ask questions about her new dog (Buddy) who is riding in the backseat. After you drop your friend off, just in time to catch her flight, you drive the two hours back home and realize that your friend accidentally took the dog’s bag with her when she ran into the airport. You realize that you do not have access to your friend’s house and cannot contact her. It is a new dog so there is no one else you can contact that knows its normal routine. You stop at the local pet store and ask the salesperson to help you pick out food and supplies to take care of Buddy for the next few weeks. They send you home with a bag of salmon and potato dry dog food, a few toys, and a dog bed. When you get home you put some of the dog food in a plastic bowl that you had been using to store oranges and lemons. You offer this to Buddy but he refuses to eat his dinner. This puts you in a little bit of a panic since your friend is on a long flight and will then be on a ship to Antarctica so contacting her will be difficult. You take a deep breath and decide that you can try to solve this problem on your own.
A template is provided below to get you started. Additional slides should be added to address all the questions in this assignment and cite your sources. You are welcome to modify this template to suit your needs, being sure to meet the assignment requirements. Make sure your PowerPoint ® presentation addresses the following questions.
What are the steps of the scientific method? List them out and provide a short description in your own words of what happens during each step.
To collect your data, read through the scenario carefully and on a slide provide a list of everything that you know about the situation with Buddy.
Create a testable hypothesis for why Buddy is not eating that is consistent with the data in the scenario: i.e., Buddy is not eating because I did not buy the type of dog food that he is used to. Indicate which pieces of evidence you used to develop your hypothesis.
Outline how you would set up an experiment to test the following hypothesis: Buddy is not eating because I did not buy the type of dog food that he is used to.
Do some research on independent and dependent variables. Identify the independent and dependent variables in your experiment.
List three things that you should keep constant (the same) during your experiment so that they don’t influence the outcome of your experiment.
Identify what you would do if:
The results of your experiment supported your hypothesis.
The results of your experiment did not support your hypothesis.
Explain what you would do in the following two situations:
You know you can contact your friend at some point soon but only for a short time. What three testable questions would you want to ask her to help support or disprove the proposed hypothesis?
Your neighbor comes over to help out with Buddy and poses the following hypothesis: Buddy won’t eat because he feels that his owner is unlucky when she travels and may get hurt. Is this a testable hypothesis? If so, please explain how you would test it. If not please explain why it is not testable in the context of the scientific method.
Information provided on the slides should be brief and bulleted. In the notes section, you must include all of your talking points – exactly as you would present them to your audience. Remember, you want to tell the story during the presentation rather than having your audience reading your slides along with you during the entire presentation. The Academic Success Center’s Writing Center has an excellent resource on
Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations:
Minimum Submission Expectations:
Include a title slide and a reference slide.
Use images (with citations) as appropriate to create an effective and professional presentation.
On each slide include short descriptions and labels. Do not write out full paragraphs of information on each slide. 18 pt font or larger recommended.
Put your explanations and talking points that would be presented to the audience in a short paragraph in the notes section of each slide.
Be free of industry jargon. Be mindful of your audience.

Please also remember that all of the following (course syllabus, p.8) are considered plagiarism:

This is a written summery of a research article. I have attached the article as well as the written summery of the article.The written summery paper needs to be edited acording to the standards listed below. I am enclosing an email from the professor. I need help and assistance with this. It is very important that this paper is edited acording to the standard instructed below my grade depends on it.. Thank you
SEE BELOW – I HAVE ALSO ATTACHED THR ORIGINAL EMIAL.
Trust all is well with you and you are having a nice and restful break.
I would like to let you know that while reading your final paper, I found the following:
the total number of direct quotations used in the paper is 15%, which exceeds the number of direct quotations allowed by the course syllabus (p.2)
of all direct quotations used, 96.5% were not enclosed in the quotation marks, as if these direct quotations were your own words
paraphrasing, for the most part, was made incorrectly by substitution of some words within the original sentence structure, rearrangement of the existing words, or the use of partial direct quotations without quotation marks and proper citations
in most cases, paraphrases were either not credited or credited incorrectly
As you know, this type of behavior constitutes plagiarism.
For further references, please see pp.7, 8 (Plagiarism Policy section) of the course syllabus, as well as Student Policies at http://aura.antioch.edu/policies_600_1x/6/
Please also remember that all of the following (course syllabus, p.8) are considered plagiarism:
“failing to put a quotation in quotation marks;
giving incorrect information (or giving no information – VS) about the source of a quotation (or of a paraphrase – VS);
changing words (paraphrasing – VS) but copying the sentence structure of a source (or rearranging the existing words – VS) without giving credit;
copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not” (http://www.plagiarism.org/plagiarism-101/what-is-plagiarism/)
I also noticed that in your final paper you made numerous errors in sentence structure, diction, grammar, and punctuation.
Based on my findings, I strongly recommend that, in order to receive credit for the course, you rewrite your final paper in the proper APA format (paraphrasing should be done correctly and properly cited; direct quotations should not exceed 10% of the paper, as it is suggested on the p.2 of the course syllabus), carefully edit it, and send it to me via email (as a “*.doc” file only).
In addition, I strongly recommend that for rewriting your final paper you use the university writing center where a knowledgeable tutor would help you understand how to write a final paper at the college level.
Please also remember that secondary sources must be properly cited.
Also, keep in mind that to paraphrase does not mean to substitute some words within the original sentence structure or rearrange existing words (for further guidance, please see the supplemental materials that I sent you along with the assigned article).
In the meantime, I will give you the “Incomplete” grade for the course, so that you could work on your final paper at your own pace and submit the paper for evaluation at your convenience, during the next quarter (see the University rules about a deadline for resolving the “Incomplete” grade).
I appreciate your understanding and undivided attention to this matter.

You will use the research question you revised in the previous module to write a hypothesis.

Science starts with a question, which is then transformed into a hypothesis that can be tested. This is how scientific knowledge is created. In this activity, you will write your own hypothesis that relates to your finalized research question.
Prompt
Use the provided Module Four Activity Template Word Document to complete this assignment. You will use the research question you revised in the previous module to write a hypothesis. Refer to the module overview and resources for helpful information about how to write effective hypotheses.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Write your hypothesis phrased as an if/then statement.
Make sure the relationship between variables that you are predicting is clear.
Explain how your hypothesis directly relates to your finalized research question.
Explain how your hypothesis is testable.
Make sure research methods could be used to determine the accuracy of the prediction (i.e., could it be accepted or rejected?).
Explain how your hypothesis is falsifiable.
It must be possible to prove the hypothesis wrong.
Guidelines for Submission
Submit your completed Module Four Activity Template. While not required, any sources should be cited using APA style. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.

Stated perspective and position on the issue (15 pts)

See handout and video for detailed instructions. The handout describes the assignment in detail. The Video describes the essence of the assignment, hopefully lessening any fears you might have about writing.

Instructions for Essay: Historical Recipe vs. Modern Brewing Practice
Due date: This assignment is published in the Week 2 Content with the due date indicated on Canvas. Late assignments will not be accepted.
Originality: The essay is an individual project and every student is solely responsible for his/her own report. All essays turned into Dropbox will be evaluated in “Turn-it-in”, which is a software package used to assess originality. Turnitin reports the percentage that a student’s writing assignment matches text in a massive database of online information. Please refer to the Provost’s Syllabus Addendum for details on OSU’s academic integrity policies.
Guidelines for Essay: The length of the essay should be 2-4 pages, double-spaced. You should choose one aspect of the Ninkasi beer recipe that made the brewing of primitive beer possible, with the goal of learning through literature/Internet based research how the current scientific understanding of that topic was derived. In other words, compare one step in the ancient practice to the equivalent modern brewing practice and consider first, how the ancient process would have worked to make beer and second, how that ancient practice led to the modern day practice. The critical thinking and writing rubrics implemented at OSU a decade ago will be used to evaluate your critical thinking and the quality of your writing.
The essay format is open, meaning that you can write in any essay style you prefer (e.g., narrative, descriptive, expository, or persuasive). At least one source should be cited or several if they are relevant.
Suggested topics: The Ninkasi recipe mentions “sweet aromatics”, which could refer to additive(s) that might have served as preservative or flavoring agents, as hops do in modern beer: a possible topic could be to trace the use of herbs, etc., leading to hops. The original Ninkasi recipe includes the line, “You are the one who spreads the cooked mash on large reed mats”; a possible topic could be to consider how the Mash steps in the Mouer recipe reflect the ancient description in the Hymn to Ninkasi and how effective it might be compared to modern mashing. Or perhaps you noticed something in the Hymn to Ninkasi that has no modern counterpart component or something that was lacking in the ancient recipe; these too could be possible topics.

I’ve uploaded the critique guidelnes, rubric, and example papers.

The Critique is based off a research paper: https://royalsocietypublishing-org.proxy.library.emory.edu/doi/10.1098/rspb.2021.1997
The paper should be 3-3.5 pages long (no more than that). The reference list doesn’t count towards the page requirement. The citation should be in the Journal of Neuroscience format, including the reference list. The paper is worth 20% of my final grede so PLEASE follow the rubric and guidelines to the T. You only need to include refences in the Background, and they can be from the refences of the target paper—you don’t need to search outside that, although you can.
I’ve uploaded the Critique guidelnes, rubric, and example papers. I’ve also uploaded the target paper (Rilling et al., 2021) as a pdf.
