Problem 10E

An engineering professor wants to determine which subject engineering students find most difficult among statistics, physics, and chemistry. She obtains the final exam grades for four students who took all three courses last semester and who were in the same sections of each class. The results are presented in the following table.

 Student Course 1 2 3 4 Statistics 82 94 78 70 Physics 75 70 81 83 Chemistry 93 82 80 70

a. The professor proposes a randomized complete block design, with the students as the blocks. Give a reason that this is likely not to be appropriate.

b.Describe the features of the data in the preceding table that suggest that the assumptions of the randomized complete block design are violated.

Step 1 of 3

February 23, 2016 HP on Key West Literary Analysis and Poetry Choose from: Tennessee Williams- “The Diving Bell” Elizabeth Bishop- “A Norther- Key West,” “The Bite,” “Roosters,” “The Bite” Wallis Stevens- “The Idea of Order at Key West,” “O Florida, Venereal Soil,” and “The Emperor of Ice Cream” All^ in PDF Look at taking 3-step approach: 1.)Give it one cold read on your own- mark down what stands out 2.)Look up words you do not know 3.)See outside criticism a. If you can, include critics saying the opposite of what you’re doing. Only do this if you are confident in shutting them down for what they are saying. Choose something you really like or you really hate, so that you feel charged when you are writing the paper At a minimum, use three sources as outside support -One of these needs to explain what was going on historically, and also biographically in the author’s life. *Wallis Stevens- Jennie is putting a book of letters of Wallis Stevens’ on hold at the library. See: poets.org poetryfoundation.org ***Do not use PoemHunter.com or Wikipedia*** Include parenthetical endnotes, or footnotes (pick one), and a works cited page. Use MLA  Use a citation or quote in each paragraph to keep grounded.  When you cite pros, write down name and page number if available. (Essay, short story, blog) If no name, you can use abbreviated websites like “poets.org”  This is a last resort, try not to do this.  To cite poetry, say name and line number (no page #) EX: Bishop 12- 14  If there is a break between lines in a poem, add a backslash where there should be an enter  Don’t use more than one lift out quotation See “Poetry Cheat Sheet” (Or go find it in your English folder from English 102) Mimetic: describe; focused on image Expressive: ethos driven; I, me, and my Pragmatic: Pathos (you) focused on experience; intended to make you laugh or cry Objective: poems about art Narrative: story, sequence of events Dramatic: over the top, loud, in your face, tied to the theatre (you, you, you, you) conversation or a verbal assault Lyric: music; typically have some type of soundplay: rhyme, rhythm, Assonance, constanance Most popular poetry in the US: 5 iambic pentameters When looking through a poem, think about what you see (smells, tastes, sounds, tactile sensations, images), feel (type of metaphors and figures of language show up), and know (what references show up that are alluded to that you must know to understand the poem). Writer does not equal speaker, though in most of our cases, this isn’t actually true Read a few poems before Thursday Lizzie Ruprecht Notes from reading for 2/25/16 “The Bight” Elizabeth Bishop Bight: a curve or recess in a coastline Marl: an unconsolidated sedimentary rock or soil consisting of clay and lime, formerly used typically as fertilizer Pilings: a small particle rubbed off by a file when smoothing oe shaping something Baudelaire: a French poet noted for a series of 101 lyrics that explore his experience with melancholy and isolation and the attraction of evil and the macabre. Marimba music: deep toned xylophone of African origin, developed in the modern form in the US in 1910 https://www.youtube.com/watchv=QQ5WGvYd9VI Ocher: an earthly pigment containing ferric oxide, typically with clay, varying from light yellow to brown or red Dredge: (n) an apparatus for bringing up objects or mud from a river or seabed by scooping or dragging; (v) bring up or clear from an area of water with a dredge Clave: a pair of hardwood sticks used to make a hollow sound when struck together **“Black-and-white man-of-war birds:” referring to frigate birds Frowsy: scruffy and neglected in appearance There is so much going on in this poem! First I recognized how different her word choice is than what I am familiar with, but shortly after, appreciated the way Bishop paints this scene. I notice a lot of different cultures shaping the poem, from African marimba music, to French poets, to claves, (which are sticks that make music originally from South America) and even the Chinese restaurant industry with the shark tails. The animals are all described brilliantly, and really seem to add another layer to the poem by accompanying the human culture with that of the natural world. I think she is giving a 4D interpretation of the scene around her, with the smells of the gas, the hot, still hair with frigate birds still flying around, describing the water, and the people with dredge’s by the water, and adds in the “feel” by referencing the French poet and the marimba music-which I listened to while I read this poem. “A Norther- Key West” Elizabeth Bishop **”lime milk sherbet” (only in Key West would this be) Mother Mizpah Oates: From 1 Samuel 22:2; unsure of context here though, nothing really on Google except the poem itself Hannibal: considered one of the greatest military commanders in history; Mediterranean and Roman Republic Herbert: unsure who this refers to So this poem was a lot more abstract, but still I found some interesting meaning. Bishop does an excellent job illustrating social scenes in this poem, as well as in “The Bight.” Here, I understand that there are black children, and a mother who is giving them coats. I think the relationships in the 1900’s between white and black people can be understood when Bishop says “the sidewalks freeze”… “the tin roofs all look frozen too,” and interestingly enough, goes on to describe the warm, palm trees. The structure of this poem, three lines per stanza, and six stanzas, is interesting to differentiate from the last one I just read. I may be interpreting her wrong, but this is what makes poetry so good. “The Diving Bell” Tennessee Williams Diving bell: an open-bottomed chamber supplied with compressed air, in which a person can be let down under water Sonorous: imposingly deep and full **”I’m speaking from Neptune’s bowels”** Nacreous:  nacre: mother-of-pearl **”The sea’s floor is nacreous, filmy/ with milk in the wind, the light of an overcast morning.”** Pediment: a broad, gently sloping expanse of rock debris extending outward from the foot of a mountain slope, (especially in a desert) Moored: attaching a boat by cable or rope to the shore or to an anchor ** “I think its safer to roam/ than to stay in a mortgaged home/Ath soth ** Galleons: s sailing ship in use (especially by Spain) from the 15 -17 centuries ** “an undersea tango palace with instant come and go moons…” ** Tennessee Williams is a wonderful writer! This poem sounds like an escape from what is thought to be conventional life. He talks about going under the sea where things go slow, but a place where thoughts are quickly entertained. He does a fantastic job creating a picture and a feel of exactly what he means, and it is highly enjoyable to read. The structure is also interesting; I like how certain words have assonance and consonance, rhyming from time to time. Bringing Neptune into the mix is also a way of portraying this “under the sea” life in Williams little diving bell. I really liked the way he described the voice he wanted to use, and I could almost hear him speaking in a certain tone (after I found out what “sonorous” meant).
