Instructions: Your initial post over the material outlined above for Topic should be at least 200 words (these must be words that are typed text within the text box of the Rich Text Editor, thus words on any attached documents will not count towards the total).
To make your posts, click on START A NEW CONVERSATION above:
State your name and Problem Numbers in the title (Title: Jane Doe, Problems 3.95 and 6.30).
In addition to your initial posts to the topics in this Week’s Forum, you are required to also reply to at least two classmates’ original posts, and each reply must be a minimum of 100 words and include direct questions. Your replies can add additional insight to your classmatesâ€™ opinions, suggest other alternative approaches, or anything similar. Be sure to read the follow-up posts to your own posts and reply to everyone who comments on your post.
For this topic, you will select two problems from the Chemistry: Atoms First, OpenStax text (in the link there is a book), one problem from each of the following two problem sets:
For Problem 1: You MUST select a problem from the end of the chapter “Exercises” from Chapter 3: Problems 95-100; Chapter 4: Problems 23-33; Chapter 6: Problems: 19-29.
For Problem 2: You MUST select a problem from the end of the chapter “Exercises” from Chapter 6: Problems 30-51.
These problems and their discussions will be included together in one post. After you decide which problems you would like to discuss, start a thread in the Topic Forum. You need not fill in the contentâ€”only begin a thread with a subject line that includes your name and the problems you will be discussing. When you are ready to fill in the details of the post, you can simply go back into your post and click â€œEditâ€ and put the information into your post. By starting your post, you are claiming your problems and no other student is allowed to choose the same problems.
Notice: For this week only duplicates will be accepted. Please note that in future weeks there will be enough questions for everyone to pick their own questions and duplicates will not be accepted.
You need to:
*show work to find solution (you can use an embedded image or the fx button on the Rich Text Editor if appropriate).
*explain in the text how you approached and worked through the problem.
Ideally, you will choose problems that you had a hard time solving until something clicked (which you would then explain–what you figured out that you did wrong, etc.). Either way, you should lead a discussion about the problem. This will help everyone go through the thought process of these problems, see different ways that students set them up, compare approaches, maybe learn new strategies and hints, recognize mistakes, etc. If you cannot solve the problem at first, no worries, your classmates and myself will give you help you along and you can edit your problem until it is due. If you are having trouble, show your work and explain where you are getting stuck. Remember, you are not getting graded on whether you solve the problems correctly, but rather the attempt you make and the discussion you have with us related to it. So it will likely be more beneficial to you to select challenging problems with which you need help as opposed to easy ones that you can already solve.
YOUR QUESTIONS ARE:
95. Using the periodic table, predict whether the following chlorides are ionic or covalent: KCl, NCl3, ICl, MgCl2, PCl5, and CCl4
36. What volume of a 0.33-MC12H22O11 solution can be diluted to prepare 25 mL of a solution with a concentration of 0.025M?
1. You are to find one slave narratives from your assigned states.
2. In essay format, you will retell to the class what you heard and read about from your chosen person about their slave experiences…
Interactive Written Debates and written Essay Research discussion forums: During the course you will write essay in week 3 and a essay in week 6 with 2 peer responses to discuss the interactive topic, add referencesâ€”posts must be at least 300 words in content. In-depth explanations of the exact expectations are located in the Forum area of the class.
You will need to have at least 300 words in this post plus 3 full references due Friday …Remember to explain what details and experiences these ex-slaves gave in describing the institution of slavery and the practice of slavery.
4. You must reference using one of the three formats and following your major’s designated style: MLA, APA, CS, Kate L. Turabian’s Manual, and the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS). YOU MUST CITE YOUR SOURCES!
5. Also summarize your findings on this ex-slave in the last paragraph. What did you find surprising or different than based on your own knowledge of enslavement and what the course has discussed so far.
The CRAAP test will help you learn what is an academic source:
- Currency: How old is it? Is it up-to-date? Or is it a primary source document?
- Reliability and Relevance: What is the source of the information? Is it relevant to your topic? Who published it? Is it peer-reviewed? Is there a bias?
- Authority: Who is the author? What are their credentials? What is their field of expertise?
- Authenticity: How factual is the source? And is it valid and reliable?
- Purpose or Point-of-View: What is the author’s intention? Who is it written for (which audience)? Is this a primary source or secondary document? Is it a tertiary document (not allowed)?
For online sources, you must ask addition questions. What is the domain (.edu?)? Who publishes the site, or sponsors it? Is it recent (has it been updated)? Are there advertisements or signs that it is a poorly designed website with all kinds of distractions? Is the site supposed to be an academic one? Or is it someone’s pet project?
Remember that this is a formal essay and you need an introduction, body, and conclusion.
Interviewer: Samuel S. Taylor
Person interviewed: Lula Jackson (supplement) [HW: cf. 30600]
1808 Valentine Street, Little Rock, Arkansas
Occupation: Field hand
“Early Hurt had an overseer named Sanders. He tied my sister Crecie to
a stump to whip her. Crecie was stout and heavy. She was a grown young
woman and big and strong. Sanders had two dogs with him in case he
would have trouble with anyone. When he started layin’ that lash on
Crecie’s back, she pulled up that stump and whipped him and the dogs
“Old Early Hurt came up and whipped her hisself. Said, ‘Oh, you’re too
bad for the overseer to whip, huh?’
“Wasn’t no such things as lamps in them days. Jus’ used pine knots.
When we quilted, we jus’ got a good knot and lighted it. And when that
one was nearly burnt out, we would light another one from it.
“We had a old lady named ‘Aunt’ Charlotte; she wasn’t my aunt, we jus’
called her that. She used to keep the children when the hands were
working. If she liked you she would treat your children well. If she
didn’t like you, she wouldn’t treat them so good. Her name was
Charlotte Marley. She was too old to do any good in the field; and she
had to take care of the babies. If she didn’t like the people, she
would leave the babies’ napkins on all day long, wet and filthy.
“My papa’s mama, Sarah, was killed by lightning. She was ironing and
was in a hurry to get through and get the supper on for her master,
Early Hurt. I was the oldest child, and I always was scared of
lightning. A dreadful storm was goin’ on. I was under the bed and I
heard the thunder bolt and the crash and the fall. I heard mama
scream. I crawled out from under the bed and they had grandma laid out
in the middle of the floor. Mama said, ‘Child, all the friend you got
in the world is dead.’ Early Hurt was standin’ over her and pouring
buckets of water on her. When the doctor come, he said, ‘You done
killed her now. If you had jus’ laid her out on the ground and let the
rain fall on her, she would have come to, but you done drownded her
now.’ She wouldn’t have died if it hadn’t been for them buckets of
water that Early Hurt throwed in her face.
“Honey, they ain’t nothin’ as sweet to drink out of as a gourd. Take
the seeds out. Boil the gourd. Scrape it and sun it. There ain’t no
taste left. They don’t use gourds now.”
Violent death followed Lula Jackson’s family like an implacable
avenger. Her father’s mother was struck and killed by lightning. Her
mother’s first husband was thrown to his death in a wrestling match.
Her own husband was dragged and kicked to death by a mule. Her
brother-in-law, Jerry Jackson, was killed by a horse. But Sister
Jackson is bright and cheery and full of faith in God and man, and
utterly without bitterness.
