Math 104 Fall Final 2017
Global Terrorism is a documented problem the World is dealing with. In the elementary Statistics course we conducted an experiment examining the correlation of multiple aspects to why there has been a rise in terrorism in certain decades. We posed the question “Are there patterns in terrorism across the world through the past several decades?”.
At first glance, we acknowledged that there is a dramatic spike in 2001 with terrorism along with 1985. We see that 2015 the graph is still rising with terrorism and from 2001 after 911 to now there was a steady decline in terrorism in America. The key patterned noticed with the first and second graph

1. Why is the normal distribution important to statistics?
One reason is that there are many variables that have distributions that closely resemble normal distributions, and it provides a good model for the sampling distribution of many statistics.
2. What characteristics do all normal distributions have?
All normal distributions, regardless of mean and variance, have their points of inflection one standard deviation below and above the mean. More importantly, regardless of the specific mean and variance, all normal distributions share the same area between standard deviations.
3. What percentage of the normal distribution falls above the mean?

Epistemology (better known as the theory/science of knowledge) is on of the branches of philosophy. It is the study of trying to distinguish something that is true (something that is adequate enough) and something that isn't adequate. This theory/science provides an understanding of the concept of knowledge of which can be understood in terms of belief, truth, and justification. Epistemology gives a clear view on the nature, scope, and quality of human knowledge. Also, epistemology is considered to be the most important thing of what makes a human being what he is- making all other branches of philosophy depend on epistemology. This goes to the fact that the whole nature of philosophy

The confidence interval is the probability that a value will fall between an upper and lower bound of a probability distribution, the value of a parameter lies within it. The margin of error is the range of values below and above the sample statistic in a confidence interval. Critical values is the point or points on the scale of the test statistic beyond which we reject the null hypothesis.
The central limit theorem says that the sampling distribution of any statistic will be normal or close to normal, if the sample size is large enough. The idea that a distribution of sample means is a more normal distribution than a distribution of scores, even when the population distribution is

Abolish Animal Cruelty
The current debate regarding animal cruelty is a crime, yet it is still a global issue in which many countries have no regard and or understanding of. Ducks are being stabbed in the head, cats shot with an arrow, and organised dog fighting rings are among the 5,200 cases of animal abuses reported to the RSPCA in South Australia in the past year (Jones, 2017). The number of abuse reports has doubled since 2012, when there were about 2,000 cases flagged, according to RPSCA chief executive Paul Stevenson. Nationally, there have been more than 70,000 animal abuse reports in the past year, with the RSPCA

“Debtors’ Prison” Rhetorical Strategies
English writer, Samuel Johnson, in his argument Debtor's Prison argues to persuade the reader that the imprisonment of debtors is unlawful and immoral. He utilizes pathos, statistics and rhetorical questions to build his argument.
Throughout the excerpt, Johnson uses startling statistics to show the morally incorrect circumstances of imprisoning debtors. In paragraph 4 the author states that the population of England was roughly around 6 million. He then goes on to state, “… a nation that voluntarily sacrifices one in every three hundred…” Here, the author is saying that there are simply too many people (too many working bodies) being imprisoned over

Summary Report 1: Cost and Benefits of College
One of the biggest questions in today’s economy with the rising price to attend college is will going to college be the smart thing to do? There are arguments both ways for this question, but the overwhelming statistics and evidence prove that even with the increase going to college is clearly worth it. In this paper I will attempt to prove, through data and statistics, that the benefits of going to college well outweigh the cost.
One of the biggest reasons if not the only reason to attend college is to get a better job out of college than you would have not attending college. A lot of people want to

author, Dr. Kevin Fitzpatrick, incorporates many studies, statistics, and cases that prove that practitioners of euthanasia in Belgium are misusing the drugs and their power as doctors.
6. Conclusion: At the end of the article, the statistics stated that euthanasia cases aren't
reported, which play a part with the corruption of the doctors. He also states many cases done by Dr. Wim Distelmans, a "protege" in euthanasia. With the cases Fitzpatrick proves the drugs are being used on the disabled instead of critical patients. He also asserts Sanchez 2 how doctors don't explain any other options for the patient, which makes the patient lack support. Therefore the article suggest that

Individuals from across the globe have been migrating to America for centuries. Without immigrants, The United States would cease to exist. Today, one of America’s top priorities is eradicating “illegal aliens” because “they pose a threat” to our society. As if today’s society is perfect, and the primary focus is solely on mexican immigrants. According to MPI “India was the leading country of origin, with 175,100 arriving in 2016, followed by 160,200 from China/Hong Kong, 150,400 from Mexico, 54,700 from Cuba, and 46,600 from the Philippines.” These statistics are only two years old, undoubtedly all of those people did not come here legally.

Chuck DeVore’s main point of his article was to show how the Trump Administration has increased economic growth, employment rates, and business affairs. The author showed his point by presenting statistics, and by comparing and contrasting throughout his article. According to Forbes, the United States economy grew at an annual rate of 3.2% within the first quarter of President Trump’s presidency (2019.) Throughout the “Make America’s Economy Great Again: Q1 GDP UP 3.2%” article, the author shows how the Trump Administration has beaten his predecessor

accepted gender roles, males seek alternatives replacing behaviours that conform to established stereotypes (Study Guide 1007AMC 1999). French argues that this is due to the masculine desire to maintain its' role of dominance in the society. The writer also expresses concerns relating to the fact that boys' aggressive behaviour is normalised by the media and sports (French 1999). Next, statistics relating to women's' work opportunities will be examined.In addition, Connell's statement that women are perceived as subordinate is proved by statistical information related to female's employment opportunities and equality. According to the statistics, females earn only 65 per cent of male's
