You probably feel that you now have all the information the piece of writing contains or that you need, but now we need to categorise the information it contains and to look for connections with our own social scientific concerns. This is the difficult bit, and we don't expect you to be expert at it yet.

The concept of probability is a purely theoretical one. Strictly speaking, no experiment measures a probability: all that we can measure is the fraction of times a particular outcome occurs in a finite number of attempts. In the infinitely long run this fraction is expected to approach the theoretical probability, but in practice we may never attain this limit. You could easily toss a fair coin four times and get four heads. You could even toss it 20 times and still get heads on every

Geological time can be divided into a number of Eons, Eras and Periods, with further subdivisions into sub-Periods or series and epochs. These are arranged chronologically, with the oldest at the bottom, younging upwards to form the stratigraphic column (Figure 2).

Each use case in a requirements model represents a unit of functionality or, more simply, a task initiated by an actor. Within each task there may be a number of identifiable actions that the software system should perform in order to complete that task successfully. In addition, it is necessary to identify what an actor does in unusual circumstances. To model these aspects of a system you can use activity diagrams.

In the UML, an activity diagram is used to model the coordinatio

HST.523J Cell-Matrix Mechanics (MIT)
Mechanical forces play a decisive role during development of tissues and organs, during remodeling following injury as well as in normal function. A stress field influences cell function primarily through deformation of the extracellular matrix to which cells are attached. Deformed cells express different biosynthetic activity relative to undeformed cells. The unit cell process paradigm combined with topics in connective tissue mechanics form the basis for discussions of several topics from cell

When you arrive at the exam centre, you may prefer to stay quietly on your own, rather than chat to other students. Do what suits you best and helps you to feel calm and positive. Once you are in your seat, try not to look around. Your senses can be heightened by tension and can fasten on irrelevant details, such as what other students are doing or wearing. Try visualising a relaxing scene, or relax using breathing exercises. Visualisation and relaxation exercises are described in Author(s): The Open University

Evaluation at this stage is usually concerned with whether plans represent good value for money. It may be appropriate to evaluate inputs to the project, to ensure that their quality and quantities are sufficient to achieve the objectives. In large building projects, many specialist tasks are subcontracted. Specifications are developed, and potential contractors are invited to tender for work. The element of competition can lead to problems if some tenderers are over-anxious to win contracts.

It follows that sorting MacLean's poems out by ‘themes’ entails the risk of disguising the tight interlocking of ‘Politics’, ‘Love’, ‘Landscape’, ‘War’ and ‘History’ in all his poetry down to 1945. Nevertheless, for convenience's sake, I will do this.
