Discussion Assignment W Peer Responses Water Resources And Energy Lab Quiz 5 Homework5

I’m working on a environmental science discussion question and need support to help me learn.

Week 5 Discussion and peer responses

Where does the water you use come from (well, reservoir, city water supply, etc.)?Are there any water access or availability issues where you live? Do you pay attention to how much you consume? Would you say that, compared to other people, the volume of water you consume is small, medium, or large? In a typical day, where do you use the most water (bathing, cooking, brushing teeth, etc.)?

  • Compose a well-developed initial post (400 to 500 words per question) that is comprehensive in answering questions posed on the discussion board

Homework 5

This QZ assesses your understanding of the material covered in the Water Resources and Energy Challenges modules.

Submission Details:

  • You will have one attempt
  • 5 questions
  • 120-minute time limit

1) Review the relevant textbook chapter(s) and watch the applicable lecture video for the week before you work on the homework questions. Many of the topics in the essay questions are discussed or considered. The videos will help provide context for understanding the questions.

2) No credit is given for answers that are copied from another source. The intent of this exercise is to demonstrate your understanding of the material, so answers need to be in your own words.

3) Do not include quotations in your answer. The question is designed to assess your understanding and interpretation of course material, so all answers need to be in your words. I only pay attention to what you have written rather than quoted material.

4) Some questions may have multiple parts, so make sure that you’ve answered all of the the question(s) being asked. A general rule of thumb is that there should be an answer for every question mark.

5) Use complete sentences. Terms such as “describe” or “discuss” mean your answer should provide details about the topic. Providing a list will most likely result in receiving only partial credit for the question. You need to demonstrate your understanding and interpretation of the material.

6) An essay question should be answered in more than one sentence. It is possible to earn full credit for a one sentence answer, but it would have to cover all of the concepts involved in answering the question. Your answer is expected to show that you understand the context of the question. This means being able to discuss how the answer fits into a broader understanding of the topic. For example, the carbon cycle involves the processing of carbon dioxide in the environment which includes uptake by plants during photosynthesis and release during decomposition. If we were to plant more trees more carbon dioxide could be removed from the atmosphere over the lifetime of those trees. They will, however, eventually die and much of the carbon that had been assimilated during photosynthesis will be released back into the atmosphere as the tree (its wood) undergoes decomposition.

7) Never leave a question blank. Partial credit is always given for any answer that shows you have considered the question. Saying “I don’t know” or “I am confused” is better than leaving the question blank.
