In an attempt to clarify architecture's uncommon mode of action the author suggests that instead of specifying what they are trying to accomplish prior to their attempts to accomplish it as problem-solver do, architects treat design as a search for the most appropriate effects that can be attained

2.1 Introduction

As handovers can take place at many stages – not just the concluding stage – of a project, handover is not, in itself, completion of the project. If the project's objectives were clearly set out, the completion or acceptance criteria should flow logically from them. Such criteria might include the following:

  • the key stages and milestones are all completed;

  • the outputs or outcomes meet the quality specifications;

"The X in Sex: A Genetic, Medical, and Evolutionary View of the X Chromosome, Fall 2009"
" This course will explore a diverse collection of striking biological phenomena associated with the X chromosome. We will examine the genetic basis and significance of several X-linked mutations. We will also discuss why men are more likely than women to display X-linked traits. We will look at the different mechanisms by which X chromosome gene expression is equalized in mammals, flies, and worms and how these mechanisms can yield unusual phenotypes. Throughout our discussions of the X chromos

The Scientific Method: An Introduction Using Reaction Time
Reaction time has many advantages for the introduction of the scientific method--the subject is familiar, many experiments are possible, and students enjoy competition. In our Introductory Biology courses, our students formulate and test a hypothesis about reaction time. We use Kosinski's Reaction Time software, that records reaction times and then analyzes them statistically using the chi-square median test. Students then write a paper that either rejects or fails to reject their null hypothesi
