This workshop serves as an introduction to laboratory exercises in molecular biology.
Making Sense of Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Analysis of a Family Nurse Practitioner Prog
The overall goal of this inquiry project was to evaluate approaches to incorporating complementary and alternative medicine into the curricula of nurse practitioner (NP) programs. Specifically, Burman undertook a comprehensive assessment of how the concept of complementary and alternative therapies is (or is not) addressed in her FNP curriculum. The outcome of this assessment is a 'curriculum component portfolio' with selected pieces of evidence, critical reflection and recommendations.
Time Series Analysis of Lehigh Valley Instrumental Climate Records
In this lab, students will learn basic statistical and graph skills by analyzing real data sets of local and regional instrumental climate records for the last 100 years. They will learn how to calculate seasonal means of climate parameters, detect trends or patterns in the records, and make different ...
Quantitative Data Analysis
Students will analyze quantitative data and interpret the results, learning about the relevance of education and family type to earnings, how it has changed over time and the relevance of race in understanding these relationships.
Data Analysis of Socio-Economic Status
The purpose of this assignment is to apply what you have learned in this course regarding the consequences of marginalization to an analysis of actual Census data for the United States in the year 2000. For this assignment, we will explore the impact of racial affiliation and sex on social class, as represented by socio-economic status (SES): level of education, occupation and income.
An Analysis of Earnings
While a much larger percentage of American families are located in the top income bracket in 1990 compared to fifty years ago, there were still slightly over 1/4 of American families with income of $25K or less in 1990.
Capital Budgeting Analysis
This course is designed for users with a working knowledge of capital budgeting who want to improve their current practices. The course focuses on three stages of capital budgeting analysis. The purpose of the course is to introduce new concepts and ideas that will improve capital budgeting; such as option pricing and post audit analysis. Course Level: Intermediate and Advanced - Since this course goes beyond traditional capital budgeting analysis, it is recommended that users have an understand
Analysis of an Aquifer Test at St. Paul Island, Pribilof Islands, Alaska
This 30-page PDF was prepared by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources and provides detailed information about the water supply available on St. Paul Islands. The site presents the results of an aquifer test and estimates potential yield from current wells. Tables, diagrams and well logs are included.
Data Analysis and Probability
Students must learn to collect and draw conclusions from data. They must gain a basic understanding of probability.
Understanding Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in Health Care
The primary objective of this content is to prepare students to read and interpret cost-effectiveness studies. The students will first be introduced to basic economic concepts that are needed in order to understand the recommendations from the United States Panel on Cost Effectiveness in Health and Medicine. One example is the distinction between opportunity costs and budgetary costs. The recommendations will then be reviewed, particularly as they apply to what students should expect to read in
Critical Analysis of Popular Diets and Dietary Supplements
There is much controversy and anecdotal information about popular diets and dietary supplements, but all too often little scientific or controlled clinical data. We examine the science behind normal mechanisms of weight control, and how weight loss diets are constructed and work. The aim of the course is to acquire the knowledge to critically appraise a weight control diet or dietary supplement and choose the best plan for success, both in the short-term and the long run. Students taking the act

Introduction to the theory of active structural control. Design of classical feedback control systems for civil structures. Simulation studies using motion lab.
Computing and Data Analysis for Environmental Applications, Fall 2003
Covers computational and data analysis techniques for environmental engineering applications. First third of subject introduces MATLAB and numerical modeling. Second third emphasizes probabilistic concepts used in data analysis. Final third provides experience with statistical methods for analyzing field and laboratory data. Numerical techniques such as Monte Carlo simulation are used to illustrate the effects of variability and sampling. Concepts are illustrated with environmental examples and

Mathematical analysis of peer to peer communication networks
Distributed protocols for peer to peer file sharing, streaming video, and video on demand have revolutionised the way the majority of information is conveyed over the Internet. The peers are millions of computers, acting as both clients and servers, downloading and uploading information. Information to be shared is broken into chunks, and the chunks are traded among peers in the network. There can be turnover in the set of chunks of information being collected and/or in the set of peers collecti
Central to good science are accurate observations, testable hypotheses, well-designed experiments or other tests, and reasonable data analyses. The purpose of this activity is to introduce the basics of designing and analyzing experiments.
