(pages 86 96, 109 -110) by Markel & Selber, from Technical Communication 12th ed. This reading addresses how to write for a specific audience with a specific purpose.

Required Source:

Probability and Statistics in Engineering and Computer Science.

Read this short article as a starting point for understanding the importance of probability and statistics in your field.

• Required Source: Tables. Download Tables.Review this short page to understand how to use and create tables.
• The following are readings and resources were assembled to help you complete the assignment.  You are not required to use them, however, they are recommended to help you save time.

A

Probability and Statistics Resources

page includes sources for each department in which you are studying that provides some brief background on the uses of probability and statistics in your fields. A second part of the document provides sources for a variety of different identified uses and several overview documents and encyclopedias.

An

Engineers and Computer Scientists Using Probability & Statistics

page is available with news articles and videos that discuss applications that use probability and statistics.

A List of

professional magazines

The following concise and easy to review and use resources will help you complete the in-text citations and references in your documents correctly.

APA (7th Edition) (Links to an external site.)

this page will provide you the tools you need to develop your APA reference list, review the following:

Video: APA 7th Edition – What is a Citation (Links to an external site.)

(2:52)

• Video: APA 7th Edition – In-Text Citations  (Links to an external site.)(3:46) (Do not look at the video on reference lists, as it is incorrect)
• Common Reference Examples Guide (Links to an external site.)

– a cheat sheet that provides examples of many source formats.

Reference Guide (Links to an external site.)

– this handout provides the format structure for three common source types.

APA References & In-text citation formats

If you are uncomfortable with your writing skills, resources to assist you with your writing can be found on

professional and general writing

resources. You may also work with the

USF Writing Studio. (Links to an external site.)

Assignment Elements

For this assignment, you will complete elements below using the

assignment template

. The work will be discussed in the next workshop after which you will incorporate them into your final assignment. Before starting this work read the assignment description and elements, think about how to professionally persuade your assigned audience of the designated purpose of the document.

Element 1: The Use of Statistics In [Your Field] * – You may work with your assigned group and others in your major on this part of the assignment.

• You must use** a minimum of  4 cited sources for this section. However, you must also have sources to support what you say, which may require you to use additional sources.

*The Use of brackets indicates that you will replace the brackets and the words inside with ones that are appropriate to you and your work.

**Using a source means that you are synthesizing the ideas from the work of another into the original ideas you are putting forward in your work. You will have at least one in-text citation and reference list item using APA formatting for each source. Adding sources to the reference list without an in-text citation will result in no credit for that source.

***This section of the assignment has one required source. A minimum of three sources are required for this section which may come from the resources list or other CREDIBLE sources. Wikipedia may not be used as a source BUT its reference lists may be checked for credible sources.

****USF College of Engineering Majors are departments or major topic areas in departments, they include: Biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, structural engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering, computer science, computer engineering, cybersecurity, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, and mechanical engineering

Work to Submit. Complete all of the required information for each source you will use.

Element 2: Probability and Statistics Literacy will Enhance Your Employability.

For this section you will

review the data attached, determine the statistical parameters that are important for your argument in the data and present the data in a table.

Work to Submit:For this part of the assignment, you will complete the following for both required sources:

• Answers to data questions (intended to help you think about what you will include on the table and how you will organize it.)
• Two ways in which you will analyze the data to support the argument you will make.

• A draft of the table
• Data

• Element 3: Reference List (You may work with your assigned groups to complete the reference list.)
• Work to Submit: Using the reference list items from above and any extra sources you plan to use, create an APA formatted reference list. You will have a minimum of 4 sources. It is important that your reference listings have the correct information, in the correct order, and that the items and list are formatted correctly.  For the reference section, make sure the listings are alphabetized so they can be easily found. Use the APA formatting resources in your reading to help you with this.  BEWARE: citation generators are often wrong; you can start with them BUT must revise any that are incorrect.

Element 4: Appealing to your Audience

For this section you will

• Think about and describe a significant, shared aspirational goal or goals of young professionals entering the field.  In the example you will see for architecture students this is to design iconic buildings.
• Develop a

thesis statement

This article defines zero net energy buildings and design strategies. It explains how
statistics are collected from IoT data sources and used in GIS to inform building form and
location decisions to maximize energy performance by evaluating sun, wind, and light. I will be
using Zero Net Energy buildings as an example of the use of statistics in the design phase of an
architectural design process.
