Matt Hines PHYS105 Assignment #2 Name of Article: Reproducing in Cities Source: the academic journal Science of the American Association of the Advancement of Science. Author: Ruth Mace Is this source credible? Why or why not? Yes I believe that the source is credible. The article was written authored by Ruth Mace, a professor of Anthropology. One of her main focuses in her academic journals is on adaptive explanations for the demographic transition to low fertility. The article was found in the peer-reviewed journal Science , which is published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. While the motives of this institution are clearly pro-science, the journal is peer critiqued (by professors in relevant fields) to insure accuracy and precision. In addition, the organization is non-profit, which erases any economic motive that could decrease its credibility. The article is fairly recent and all claims and data are still relevant today. What is the main issue of the article? The article focuses on reproducing in cities and how the population flow from rural to urban has decreased fertility rate.

    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.
