R. Linton defined status simply as a position in a social system

| August 30, 2017

Question
EXTREMELY important:

Please READ ALL instructions very carefully, since I had problems before with professors that do not follows instructions. This is very important since it will be my grade. I really appreciate your attention and effort on this matter.

VERY IMPORTANT:

PLAGIARISM IS NOT ACCEPTED: Please check your paper in the following free website: www.grammarly.com (if you can’t get access directly through this website then goes to google.com and type in the search bar: plagiarism checker and click on grammarly.com).

Very Important:

Please include: “IN TEXT CITATIONS”, take a look at the example below for in text citations. Unfortunately, I always have problems with some of you who DO NOT know what an in text citations means, since never do it.

Example of “IN TEXT CITANTIONS”:

FIRST you have to explain or answer whatever question in YOUR OWN words. THEN you have to use “in text citation” from a good source to support your answer.

This is the example of in text citation:

“R. Linton defined status simply as a position in a social system, such as child or parent. Status refers to what a person is, whereas the closely linked notion of role refers to the behavior expected of people in a status”. (Guide, 2011)===> This name (Guide) along with the year(2011) enclosed in (parenthesis) is the source where you get the information.

HERE IS THE COMPLETED LOGIC APPLICATION PROJECT:

Logic Application Project

Necessary Background

The following project uses the game of Guess Your Card. This is a game in which each player draws (without looking) three cards.

Each card has a number between 1 and 9 on it. The players then place their cards on their heads so that everyone but themselves can see the cards.

The object of the game is to guess what cards you have. The first person to do this correctly wins.

During the play, each player, in turn, draws a question at random from a stack of questions.

The player then answers the question based on the cards that they see (not their own cards, which they cannot see).

An Example:

Andy has the cards 6 6 7

Belle has the cards 3 6 7

Carol has the cards 1 1 9

Dan has the cards 3 4 8

Andy draws the question card, “How many 7s do you see?” He answers, “one,” because he cannot see the 7 on his own head; he sees only the 7 on Belle’s head.

Next Belle draws the question card, “Of the four even numbers, how many different even numbers do you see? She answers “three,” because she sees the 4, 6, and 8 on Andy and Dan’s head.

From this, Dan can conclude he has two even cards, since he can only see a 6 and Belle sees two more.

The Project’s Situation

You are playing Guess Your Card with three other players. Here is what you see:

Andy has the cards 1 3 7

Belle has the cards 3 4 7

Carol has the cards 4 6 8

Andy draws the question card, “Do you see two or more players whose cards sum to the same value?” He answers, “Yes.”

Next Belle draws the question card, “Of the five odd numbers, how many different odd numbers do you see? She answers “All of them.” ”

Andy suddenly speaks up. ”I know what I have,” he says. ”I have a one, a three, and a seven.”

The Question:

What cards do you have?

In answering this question, you must write a neat and professional report.

You need to briefly summarize the salient facts of the problem, explain your strategy for solving the problem, and explain why your strategy will work, execute your strategy, show your mathematical working, draw conclusions from your working, and finally present your answer with a brief summary of why it is your conclusion.

Remember, your strategy is to use more than logic. What kind of logic will you use?

The format of the report is to be as follows:

• You are to Write 4 to 5 pages paper

• USE IN TEXT CITATIONS: (Please take a look at the example enclosed of how to cite)

• Include INTRODUCTION

• Include CONCLUSION

• Include a REFERENCE page

• Please DO NOT Use Wikipedia as a reference source.

•In addition to the 4 to 5 pages required. Include the Grading Procedure page in your report.

•Neatness and professionalism of presentation:

◦Text should be legible

◦Use sentences and paragraphs appropriately.

◦Text should be free of typos and spelling mistakes.

◦Presentation should include an opening statement (INTRODUCTION) describing what you intend to present and a CONCLUSION wrapping up the presentation.

Writing Assignments

Directions

Writing assignments are to be typed solutions. The best way to envision how these papers are to be constructed is to imagine that you have been hired to answer the questions given in the assignments.

When problem analysts submit their reports to their clients, they do more than simply answer the question. The document is broken into four parts; in order:

The Problem:

This is a statement of the problem that you have been asked to solve. It is stated in a single, simple sentence.

Any necessary and significant details should follow. Think of this as being the question you have ultimately been hired to answer. Be sure to use your own words.

Remember that your audience is aware of what question they hired you to answer, however, it most likely has been a fair amount of time and they are busy people.

You want to be clear, concise, include everything important, but don’t waste the readers time.

The Approach:

What strategy will you use to solve this problem? This is tougher to convey in a single, simple sentence, and sometimes even a single paragraph.

However, you can almost always begin with a statement saying the method that you used.

Follow this with an overview of how you put the facts together with the technique to get an answer.

This is not a section of mathematical calculations. No calculations are seen here at all.

In fact, this section must be written in future tense, as though you have not already done this work.

You are writing as though you are explaining a proposed method of solving the problem, not from the standpoint of someone who has already done the work.

Remember, this section is about how you will solve the problem. It cannot seem as though you have already drawn a conclusion. It should not read like you have already done the work.

Otherwise, you could be accused of bias; if the analyst profits from a particular answer, then they will choose a method that will lead to this answer.

To avoid this perception, you need to maintain a tone and style of detachment.

You do not care which answer you receive for the question, only what the answer is, whatever it is.

To help ensure this tone, you need to include the different conditions under which you will draw your different possible conclusions.

Ultimately, all these projects involving calculating some value(s) and then choosing a course of action based on this.

Explain what range of values of your possible solution(s) correspond with which courses of action.

Conclusion:

Here you start by stating the recommended course of action. You follow this with a summary of the reasons for your recommendation. This section is the most important section.

You must be sure you are conveying everything needed without boring the reader with extraneous information.

Your reasoning needs to tie back into the explanation you gave in The Approach regarding how you would choose the course of action.

Solution Details:

Only now do you include the mathematics. You must include not just the calculations, but also a brief explanation of each calculation.

You should also consider the following questions in writing any report.

1. Neatness and professionalism of presentation:

• Is your text legible

• Have you used sentences and paragraphs appropriately?

• Is your text reasonably free of typos and spelling mistakes?

• Does your presentation include an opening (INTRODUCTION) statement describing what you intend to present and a CONCLUSION wrapping up the presentation?

2. Appropriateness and explanation of problem solving strategy: 10 points

• If preformed correctly, will your strategy solve the problem?

• Is it clear to the reader why your steps will solve the problem?

• Are the steps of your strategy in a logical order?

• Are there any redundant or unnecessary steps?

3. Implementation of strategy:

• Did you follow the strategy you outlined?

• Did you preform the steps of your strategy correctly?

4. Use of appropriate mathematical notation and language:

• Are you using mathematical language as opposed to common, less precise language?

• Are you using mathematical language according to its definition as opposed to a less precise manner?

• Are you using the symbols of mathematics correctly?

5. Presentation of the results presented in the context of the question:

• Is the question you are asked, answered?

• Is it clear from your presentation (both in the opening and closing) what the question
you are answering is?

• Does your answer include a brief summary of why you decided on this answer?

Note: You will be graded on the quality of your answers, the logic/organization of the report, your language skills, and your writing skills.

The assignment will be graded using the following rubric:

Outcomes Assesse: Describe data using Venn diagrams and the notation of set theory.
