Writing in Mathematics Seminar - Mathematics is different from some other disciplines such as art and music in that it builds upon itself.

This essay, although not feasible to implement in the real world, accomplishes the goals of a Writing in Mathematics seminar, which are to encourage students to think creatively about mathematics, increase the students’ skills in writing effect...   [tags: higher Education, math, higher learning] 830 words

Seminar in Criminology - Cullen and Agnew (2011) stated that deterrence occurs when a person refrains from committing a criminal act due to the threat of punishment being greater than the chance for a reward. The typical, average, law abiding, rational thinking, and responsible American does not commit crimes. Why.

Industrial Revolution Seminar Questions - 1) What caused the Industrial Revolution. There are multiple reasons that the Industrial Revolution started. It was mostly made possible by a revolution in agriculture, which improved farm productivity.

This meant that there were less famines, and that women would have stronger babies, so population skyrocketed. Population explosion from both declining death rates and the enclosure movement, in which rich landowners kicked farmers off their land, resulted in more people migrating to the cities to find jobs....   [tags: Industrial Revolution, questions,] 1306 words

A Brief Summary of Milgram's Seminal Research on Obedience to Authority - Social psychology, as a discipline, has given relatively little attention to the problem of evil in society, and those discussions in this field that do exist typically regard evil actions as only varieties of aggression without any characteristics that distinguish them from other forms of intentional mistreatment of others (Berkowitz, 1999). Because of the field's situationistic perspective emphasizing the individual's susceptibility to the power of the immediate situation, social psychologists generally view the fairly high levels of obedience to authority displayed in Milgram's classic experiment as the paradigmatic example of evil behavior (Berkowitz, 1999)....   [tags: milgram experiment, social psychology, behavior]
