The need to understand how to design and set up an investigative experiment is nearly universal to all students in engineering, applied technology and science, as well as many of the social sciences.Many schools offer courses in this fundamental skill and this book is meant to offer an easily accessible introduction to the essential tools needed, including an understanding of logical processes, how to use measurement, the do's and don'ts of designing experiments so as to achieve reproducible results and the basic mathematical underpinnings of how data should be analyzed and interpreted.The subject is also taught as part of courses on Engineering statistics, Quality Control in Manufacturing, and Senior Design Project, in which conducting experimental research is usually integral to the project in question.
Bilingual By Choice
Viginie Raguenaud guides parents on how to introduce a second language to their children while providing insights, resources, and activities for raising children that will become bilingual adults. Bilingual by Choice focuses on the process of keeping children engaged in language learning from youth to adulthood.
* Covers such essential fundamentals as "definitions," "quantification," and standardization of test materials
* Shows students and professionals alike how to plan an experiment-from how to frame a proper Hypothesis to designing an experiment to accurately reflect the nature of the problem to "designing with factors."
* Includes a separate section on the use of Statistics in Experimental Research, including overview of probability and statistics, as well as Randomization, Replication and Sampling, as well as proper ways to draw statistical inferences from experimental data.
