choose a poem by one of the poets to write on        

Essay 2 is due this week. Write a 750-950 word essay on one of the following topics. Aim for a 5-paragraph essay structure ( introduction with thesis, three or more  body paragraphs, and a conclusion). The word count does not include the Works Cited page or formatting.  Write a critical analysis of one of the works from weeks 3 or 4.  Compare and contrast how the “Modern” man is represented in texts by two different authors from weeks 3 and/or 4. Which author this week seems most representative of the Modern viewpoint as you understand it? Explain. Some research on Modernism might be required here! Be sure to identify at least 3 reasons or points to explore in the body of your paper. You might examine 3 qualities of Modernism and discuss how those qualities appear in the poetry of ee cummings, for example.

Your essay should be formatted in MLA style, including double spacing throughout. All sources should be properly cited both in the text and on a works cited page. As with most academic writing, this essay should be written in third person. Please avoid both first person (I, we, our, etc.) and second person (you, your).

In the upper left-hand corner of the paper, place your name, the professor’s name, the course name, and the due date for the assignment on consecutive lines. Double space your information from your name onward, and don’t forget a title. All papers should be in Times New Roman font with 12-point type with one-inch margins all the way around your paper. All paragraph indentations should be indented five spaces (use the tab key) from the left margin. All work is to be left justified. When quoting lines in literature, please research the proper way to cite short stories, plays, or poems. 

Should you choose to use outside references, these must be scholarly, peer-reviewed sources obtained via the APUS library (select Advanced Search and check the Peer Reviewed box). Be careful that you don’t create a “cut and paste” paper of information from your various sources. Your ideas are to be new and freshly constructed. Also, take great care not to plagiarize.

Whatever topic you choose you will need a debatable thesis. A thesis is not a fact, a quote, or a question. It is your position on the topic. The reader already knows the story; you are to offer him a new perspective based on your observations.

Since the reader is familiar with the story, summary is unnecessary. Rather than tell him what happened, tell him what specific portions of the story support your thesis. 

 

Assignment 2: Expenses Worksheet in Excel

Before beginning this assignment, you should thoroughly review Excel Worksheets, Charts, Formulas, Functions, and Tables from your course textbook, Go! All in one: Computer concepts and application.
  
For this assignment you will use Microsoft Excel to develop a worksheet that details your personal expenses in at least four categories from the last three months. Some of these expense categories might include, but are not limited to, Mortgage, Rent, Utilities, Phone, Food, Entertainment, Tuition, Childcare, Clothing, and Insurance. (These numbers may be fictitious.)

Part 1: The SpreadsheetBegin by opening a new Microsoft Excel file. (You may use the template foundhere.)Save it as LastnameFirstInitial_M3_A2Use Rows 1 and 2 for a title.Beginning in row 4, use column A to list your different expenses.Label the next three columns (B, C, D) for the past three months.Fill in the appropriate amount for each expense for each month.Beside the column with your third month’s entries, create another column for totals for each category.Use a formula to calculate a total for each category of expense. In the row below your last expense entry, create another row for the monthly totals of expenses.Use a formula to calculate a total for each month of expenses.Beside the column add another column for calculating the percent of the budget for each expense category.Use a formula to calculate the percent that each expense category is of the total expenditures.Format the worksheet by adjusting column widths and wrapping text, and by applying appropriate financial number formatting and cell styles. 

Please Note: While some calculations might be easy to do in your head or using a calculator—merely typing the answer into the appropriate cell—the point of this assignment is to get you accustomed to using formulas. In situations requiring frequently updated data or more complex calculations, Excel is a very powerful tool if you know how to use it . Your grade is based on your demonstrated ability to use the required formulas.

Part 2: The Chart

Below your table of monthly expenses, you will create a chart using the numbers from your spreadsheet similar to the example below.

Open the Insert ribbon at the top of the screen.Click on a populated cell inside your spreadsheet, then, click on Column on the Insert ribbon. Select the style of column chart you like. Click and drag your column chart into position below your spreadsheet.

Save your file as LastnameFirstinitial_M3_A2.xls. Submit this document to the M3: Assignment 2 Dropbox by Tuesday, March 10, 2015.

Suggested challenge for intermediate users: Add a row or rows detailing your income and subtract the total expenditures from the total income.

Suggested challenge for advanced users: Use a formula, function, or combination of both to show your net gain or loss (income minus expenses summed over time) for the three-month period.Assignment 2 Grading Criteria Maximum Points Submitted an .xls file with a spreadsheet labeled and populated according to the directions.20Included calculated totals for each month and each category.40Included formulas to calculate each expense category’s percentage of the total expenditures.40Formatted the worksheet by adjusting column widths and wrapping text, and by applying appropriate financial number formatting and cell styles.20Included a column or bar graph comparing expenses for each month.40Accurately portrayed numbers from the expenses spreadsheet in the chart.20Formatted the chart for visual appeal.20Total: 200

discussion 4

 

According to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (n.d.), “only one in three children are physically active every day” and at least one contributor is the large number of hours children spend either watching television or playing video games. Recently, video games have been developed that offer physical interaction and activity to encourage more physical activity and develop fine motor skills. There are many other types of digital devices, some of which encourage physical activity and others that encourage relaxing behaviors.

In this Discussion, you select one type of digital device and a specific age group. You then examine research related to the impact that digital devices have on the physical development of your selected age group.

To Prepare for this Discussion: Review this week’s Learning Resources related to digital technology and its impact on physical development Consider and select one of the following digital devices: Game consoles Tablets Smartphones Laptops Fitness bands Digital sports cameras (e.g., GoPro) Select one of the following age groups: infants, children, adolescents, adults, older adults. Search the Internet and the Walden Library for at least two articles regarding the positive and negative impacts your selected digital device has on physical development of your selected age group By Day 4

Post a summary of each of the articles you found. Explain the positive and negative impact your selected digital device has on the physical development of the age group you selected. Use proper APA format and citations.
