Question Description

I’m studying and need help with a Science question to help me learn.

Phys Anthro Old World Monkeys


Part 1 Instructions:

For this part of the Forum, we will be searching for different species of Old World Monkeys. Last time, we did the Strepsirrhini and one group of the Haplorrhini, the New World Monkeys (Platyrrhini). This time we’re venturing over into the other major group of Haplorrhini, the Catarrhini. More specifically, just one group of Catarrhini:

Cercopithecoids

, colloquially known as the

Old World Monkeys

.

We’ll be concentrating on finding different species of Cercopithecoids (Old World Monkeys) in an attempt to grasp the wide-ranging diversity of this primate groups. If you are unfamiliar with the terms

Genus

and

species

, then have a quick glance at the Wikipedia page on

taxanomic rank

(Links to an external site.)

What do you need to do?

  • Look through what everybody has already posted to see what’s taken already
  • Look up / find yourself an Old World Monkey that hasn’t been mentioned yet. Double-check by doing a search on the Forum page.
  • Write a post that includes the following information at a minimum:

    • Common name of your primate

      • This is the name that you usually see on the Zoo information signs above the

        Scientific name

        . For example, in our last forum, Bare-eared Squirrel Monkey is a common name
    • Scientific name of your primate. This is the

      Genus

      and

      species

      name of the primate in question.

      • To follow the example above, the Scientific name of that species is:

        Saimiri ustus

      • Genus

        and

        species

        names are always in italics OR underlined (when italics aren’t possible). The

        Genus

        name always starts with a capital letter. The

        species

        name is entirely in lower-case letters
    • Which countries your primate is found in, or where in the world it is found (if found in several countries). Provide a link so we know where your information comes from!
    • Why you picked this particular primate and any additional information that may be of interest. Was there something that you found interesting about it? Is it endangered? Etc. You have quite a bit of leeway here but responses should be

      at least 50 words

      . If you can, link to a picture of your primate, or embed the image in your post.


Part 2 Instructions:

You should respond to

at least

two other students.

Pick students that do not already have two peer responses.

This will help ensure that everybody gets some feedback!

Your peer response should include something that you like about the other person’s post. Be specific – did you like their choice of primate? Did you pick a similar primate, or a very different one? Do your primates have something in common? The goal is to find something that links these primates together, or distinguishes them from one another in significant ways (such as living on different continents or in different environments).

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.


Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.


Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.


The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.



ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS


Discussion Questions (DQ)


Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.

Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.

One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.

I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.


Weekly Participation


Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.

In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.

Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).

Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.


APA Format and Writing Quality


Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).

Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.

I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.


Use of Direct Quotes


I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.

As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.

It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.


LopesWrite Policy


For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.

Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.

Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?

Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.


Late Policy


The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.

Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.

If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.

I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.

As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.


Communication


Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:

Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.

Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
