As you read this, use these questions/ideas as a way to think more clearly about the inquiry wheel and your current understanding of scientific methods/processes.
Describe your current understanding of the scientific process / scientific inquiry/research process.
How is this conception (Robinson 2004) of scientific method different from what you currently know or have been taught?
Pick one spoke of this wheel and describe what the illustration implies about how these processes work. For example, consider “Questions ↔ Observing.” Describe what this illustration is trying to show about how this portion of the process works. What does this suggest about every spoke of the wheel?
How might the spoke you chose be related to a neighbor or non-neighbor spoke?
Where does the inquiry process begin, and where does it end?
Why do you need to understand this process if you are
a doctor, dentist, veterinarian
a sales rep for a drug company
a bench tech working for ATCC (originally – American Type Culture Collection) who is bundling cell cultures of Human T cells for research on AIDS
an outdoor educator with the National Park Service
a K – 8 educator

Review the BIOL181 Grading Criteria HERE, which contains the detailed evaluation that I will use to assess your performance. It also will help you understand what is expected of you as you prepare your assignment. Use your own words (paraphrase). For help with paraphrasing, please review the ‘Quoting and Paraphrasing’ service in the Trefry Library Writing@APUS Center. Note that your Turnitin report similarity score should be under 20% (not including references) and free of paraphrasing issues. Review the color-flagged text on your report, fix any issues, and resubmit again before the deadline (this assignment is set to unlimited submissions). Note that less than 10% of your work should contain direct quotes. Email me with any questions! Assignment Instructions: To help you complete Assignment #3: Final Presentation, you will first submit an outline to organize your thoughts and main points. Your Outline should be formatted in the specified way and must contain the following elements described below. Be sure to add your name and course number to your Outline. The Outline Format: Your Outline must be formatted as described and demonstrated by the example linked above – an alphanumeric outline created with MS Word saved as a .doc or .docx file type only. Please note that this format will be assessed in your grade: Use an alphanumeric sequence Sections should be indented and aligned Follow the suggested order of the required topics/subtopics Use brief but detailed and descriptive phrases (e.g., pain and stiffness in joints, decreased range of motion, swelling, tenderness) The Outline Content: Your Outline should contain the following topics/subtopics in this order. Also, remember that your Final Presentation (Assignment #3) should only be 10-15 slides, so you need to be concise and clear with your information. I. Introduction Section – this section must contain the following: A. Topic selection and reason for selecting B. Thoroughly define the disease/condition C. History of the disease/condition D. Relevant image of the disease/condition II. Content Sections – this section must contain the following four main topics (the subtopics are recommendations to use if appropriate to your disease/condition): A. Statistics/Epidemiology 1. Statistical prevalence (e.g., overall, gender, age) 2. Types of determinants (e.g., risk factors) B. Costs 1. Costs to the individual/family (e.g., mental, physical, emotional) 2. Possible costs to society (dollar figures) 3. Loss of productivity in the workforce C. Anatomy & Physiology/Etiology 1. Which parts of the body are affected [e.g., tissue(s), organ(s), and/or organ system(s)] 2. Description of the normal structure and function of affected body parts 3. How the disease/condition changes the normal structure and function of affected body parts 4. Cause(s) of the disease/condition D. Diagnosis/Treatments/Prognosis 1. How this disease/condition is diagnosed (e.g., history, exam, diagnostic imaging, labs) 2. How the disease/condition is treated (e.g., traditional medical treatments, alternative methods of treatment) 3. The prediction (prognosis) of this disease/condition’s outcome (e.g., life expectancy, if treated, vs. untreated) III. Conclusion Slide – this section must contain four to six bulleted points that sum up all of the main topics/subtopics (statistics/epidemiology, costs, anatomy & physiology/etiology, diagnosis/treatments/prognosis) from the body of your presentation.

Internal Citations These are not listed on a separate page but instead placed throughout the Outline via in-text citations anytime you paraphrase, use direct quotes, or want to use visual/audio components from other sources. Therefore, all source material should be cited. All internal citations listed within the Outline should be included in the reference lists and vice versa.

Just use the uploaded document as it’s the paper that needs to be transitioned into a PPT not everything can fit, so please choose the best parts. I have also uploaded a sample to base off of
1) Use a template
Several templates have been provided for you here on Canvas. They are a single PowerPoint slide that
all your information will be put on. You may use one of these, or find another one. (There are many
templates available online, but make sure you find one that is for size 36”x24” and horizontal.)

2) Put your information in the template
Type and/or cup-and-paste your information into the PowerPoint template.
You are welcome to make changes to the template, but remember the following:
● You can make the font bigger but DO NOT make it smaller. (The templates are designed for the
36”x24” poster and making the font smaller may make it difficult or impossible to read on your
poster.)
● Replace and/or delete all the “TYPE HERE” text on the template. The final poster should only
have your work on it, not “TYPE YOUR INTRODUCTION HERE”.
● You may change colors on the template
● You may change the order and/or positioning of the sections, but in general, your poster should
flow from left to right in the order your research proposal flows from beginning to end.
