Natural Systems 1 Syllabus---Miami University


In reading this proposal, most of it was clear but there are some areas where it can confuse the reader. The hypothesis has a very clear beginning, but then it seems to jump into the idea of running and crawling. By going through it, I understand that it was testing three different methods of approaching, but in the hypothesis it is relatively unclear which question you are experimenting with. The introductionn was very good, but I always thought the background information went under the introduction. The research was very thorough and it had relevence because the anatomy affects their behaviors. The methods went into more detail about the certain distances they could get before the squirrel would move, but the hypothesis didn't really predict actual distances. But the step by step of the methods was very clear to someone without current knowledge of the experiment, and the experiment was much more than just a survey. Also the data sheets made sense. Overrall it was very well written.
