James Gordon BIO 2730 9 March 2016 Epidemiology Case Study Part I-Beginnings 1. What roles do models play in testing hypothesis? Models show or give the tester a visual to go with and help expand their thoughts or clarify the reasoning of what their hypothesis is about the tested solution and product. 2. What did the humoral model of disease propose as the cause for cholera? It depends on the balance of blood, phlegm, black bile, and yellow bile. 3. What did the miasma model of disease propose as the cause for cholera? By the exposure to toxic gas or miasma resulting from the fermentation of organic material. 4. What general skills of experimental design were necessary to plan effective experiments to test dosage measuring and delivery systems for anesthesia, or to investigate the properties and effects of different drugs? Knowing the amount of dosages to give which gives the time frame of being under the anesthesia and how it would affect the body. Basically just have simple control over the anesthesia. 5. Why are experiments considered strong test of hypothesis? Because they show the good and bad of the tested problem, they show its strengths and weaknesses, and what needed to be changed and improved.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
