You will select six (6) scholarly sources, such as books, articles, interviews, etc. that you collected through your research conducted with the Kent State Library scholarly databases.  Your topic of research must build on the critical scholarship surrounding the topic of Technology and Identity. Depending on your research, you may also be using other primary sources or video interviews available through accredited websites.

Each document should have a title page, each citation should be in alphabetical order like a References page, page numbers should be used. Your work must demonstrate that you have a clear understanding of the sources that you are annotating.  You must read or view each source in its entirety.  If you are only using specific chapters of a book, you should only cite those chapters.

The content of your annotations must include a summary, an assessment, and a reflection, in that order. The first paragraph will be a summary.  What new information is the author discussing?  What method is the author using?  What are the author’s main points? What is the author’s thesis and what information does the author use to support it?  The second paragraph will be an assessment.  How does this source compare with your other sources? Is it a useful and reliable source?  Is it a biased source?  Explore the author’s relationship to the source and the credibility of the source itself, as well as examine its relationship to your other sources.  The third paragraph will be a reflection.  How does this source fit into your argument?  Does this source change your argument?  How does this source support your working thesis?



Most of you may have heard the adage, “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.” This principle is true in multiple areas of life, particularly within the classroom environment. Think back over your educational experiences.

What was one of the worst lessons that you can remember enduring? How did the teacher fail to convey the material? Was it blatantly obvious that he or she was unprepared for class? Can you recall any overarching themes? What could he or she have done differently?

Case Study Business


Scott Restaurant Company purchased a commercial freezer from Big Refrigeration Company. The written contract between Scott Restaurant Company and Big Refrigeration Company provided that Scott Restaurant Company would pay Big Refrigeration Company $5,000 for an Arctic Air commercial freezer and an additional $1,000 for delivery and installation of the commercial freezer. Write a case study that considers the questions below. Is this contract subject to Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC)? Why, or why not? Does it make a difference if Scott Restaurant Company or Big Refrigeration Company are merchants? Why, or why not? Next, consider that Big Refrigeration Company delivered an Admiral Craft commercial freezer to Scott Restaurant Company on the date the contract required but, before the freezer was installed, a representative of Scott Restaurant Company recognized that the freezer that was delivered was not the brand that the contract specified. Include responses to the questions below in your case study.


Your case study should be at least two pages in length and include at least two outside sources. Be sure to use APA formatting for all citations and references. Please note that no abstract is needed.


Valid arguments and invalid

Do the exercises below. Be sure to scroll down for the full set.

  1. Which of the following arguments are valid? Which are invalid?
  2.   Donna will get an A in philosophy if an only if she writes a good paper. Donna got an A in philosophy. Therefore, she wrote a good paper. B.  If Donna writes a good paper, she will get an A in philosophy. Donna got an A in philosophy. Therefore, she wrote a good paper. C. If whales are mammals, then they are not fish. Whales are fish. Whales are not mammals. D. If the rapture has occurred, then either some of the cars on the highway will be unoccupied or all drivers are damned. Some drivers are not damned. None of the cars on the highway are unoccupied. Therefore, the rapture has not occurred. E  Some snarks are bandersnatches. All bandersnatches are igglypoofs. So, some snarks are igglypoofs.
  3. Answer the following questions. Give short explanations that reason from the definitions of the relevant logical concepts
  4. Does an argument provide a good reason for believing its conclusion if it is valid? Explain.
  5. Can a valid argument have a false conclusion? Explain.
  6. Can a sound argument have a false conclusion? Explain.
  7. What is it for a statement to be valid? (trick question)
  8. Which of the following arguments are inductively strong? Which are weak?
  9. It has rained every day in the Darién Gap for the past twenty-five years. Thus it will probably rain in the Darién Gap tomorrow.
  10. People try on shoes before buying them. People drive cars before signing up for a three-year lease. People take a close look at travel information before committing to an expensive vacation. Thus people should have sex with each other before committing to marriage.

  13. Upon landing at the SeaTac Airport, plane passengers saw broken buildings, large cracks in the runway, fire engines running about, and paramedics assisting injured people. The passengers concluded that an earthquake just occurred.
  14. Answer the following questions. Give short explanations based on the definitions of the relevant concepts.
  15. Explain how deductive validity and inductive strength differ.
  16. Can the conclusion of an inductively cogent argument be false? Explain.
  17. Must an inductively strong argument have true premises? Explain.


Validity Recap:

It will help to keep these categories separate:

Statements or claims can be true or false, but not valid, sound, strong or cogent.

Arguments are sets of statements. Arguments can’t be true or false. The can be valid, sound strong or cogent.

Properties of Statements (or claims) Properties of Arguments
True or false Valid




When we way an argument is valid (or strong) we are not claiming that its premises are true. We are only claiming that IF they are true, then the conclusion is true (or likely to be true in the case of strength).

Arguments Deductive Inductive
Premises support conclusion Valid

If the premises are then the conclusion must be true


If the premises are true then the conclusion is likely to be true

Support + true premises Sound

Valid an all premises are true


Strong and all premises are true

Valid argument can have false premises and they can have false conclusions. When we say an argument is valid we are only saying that the conclusion must be true IF all the premises are true. Each of the arguments in the chart below is valid:

True Premises Some false premises
True conclusion 1.      If cats are felines then they nurse their young.

2.      Cats are felines

3.      So cats nurse their young.

1.       If dogs are felines then they nurse their young

2.      Dogs are felines

3.      So dogs nurse their young

False conclusion No such thing. For an argument to be valid is for it to be impossible for it premises to be true and its conclusion false. 1.      If fish are felines then they nurse their young

2.      fish are felines

3.      So fish nurse their young


Journal Accounting

Journal Accounting


Reflect on a time where you had to rely on fixed and variable costs to predict total cost. What would you have done had you not had that information to use? Consider a time when you had to rely on fixed and variable costs to predict total costs. Reflect on the possible outcome had one of these two variables not been known. Explain what you might have done. Note: If you have not had to rely on fixed and variable costs to predict cost before, identify what you would do if placed in that situation


Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
