Hey guys. I took a really interesting class this semester and I want to upload what I learned on here partially as an online record for me to reference in the future and also as something that y'all can use if you're learning about generative syntax. This class covers elementary analyses of the syntax of... Continue Reading →
**Another set of notes for my criminology class.** Social Disorganization and the Urban ecology of Crime and Delinquency First developed at UChicago in the 1920s and 30s Plotted out the residential location of youths who had been referred to juvenile court in diff areas in Chicago Grounded in a theory of urban ecology Important peoplePark and Burgess Urban ecology...

These are the notes I have from my criminology class. This is the original paper. Classical criminology refers primarily to the 18th-century writings of Cesare Beccaria in Italy and Jeremy Bentham in England. Both were utilitarian social philosophers who were primarily concerned with legal and penal reform rather than with formulating an explanation of criminal... Continue Reading →
Hey guys! So, this time, we're going look at other methods we can use to construct proofs when just deriving from the premises isn't enough. Conditional Proof (CP) The setup: Basically, you use this method when the conclusion or a part of the conclusion you want is a conditional. This makes it so you assume... Continue Reading →
This is part two of our little intro to Symbolic Logic. We're going to expand our repertoire of rules we can employ in our proofs. These rules are all about putting logic statements into an alternative form. A lot of these rules will be familiar as they're used in mathematics. One of the differences between... Continue Reading →
Hi y'all! So, if you're computer science majors/philosophy major/etc., you probably have to take this class in college. I love this stuff because it's very procedural and the proofs they give for you to solve are like puzzles and puzzles are super fun. Today, we're gonna look at the 8 basic rules and then we'll...

So, recursion, one of the hardest units in APCS. The concept is pretty easy but the execution is a bit trickier. Today, I'm going to pass on a trick that my teacher taught me on how to trace your way through a recursion problem. I'm going to assume that y'all already know what recursion is... Continue Reading →
Alright, let's review for AP Drawing Graphs and go over some of the most commonly missed (and least taught) concepts on the AP exam. First off, C + I + G + NX = Y, which means consumption (by households aka the public) plus investment (by companies) plus gov't spending plus net exports (which is... Continue Reading →
Side Note: I don't know if my little notes on the margins are entirely correct but the diagrams should be. If in doubt, always refer to your textbook or ask the teacher. This is one of the harder units along with genetics. Good luck!
Alright, it's time to tackle 2D arrays and arrayLists. 2D arrays are basically arrays of arrays. First off, 2D arrays: 2D Arrays To start off with, the declaration and instantiation. Since 2D arrays are objects, we will use the new operator. There are several ways to do this: The "normal" way:data type   name = new data type... Continue Reading →
Sorting methods as it pertains to arrays isn't the simplest thing to wrap your head around but the concept and the way they should work should be pretty intuitive. You would need to know about two main sorting methods in APCS; the selection sort and the insertion sort. Like the different types of loops, both of these... Continue Reading →
Arrays are basically lists of things. This list can contain both objects and primitive data. The basic array can be declared and instantiated as such: (data type)[ ] (arrayname) = new (data type) [(number of elements)]; Since arrays are considered as objects, the declaration and instantiation follow the pattern of other objects. So, if I... Continue Reading →
This lab review goes over three labs within Chapter 2: the base conversion lab, the circle lab and the string manipulation lab. Even if you aren't an AP Comp Sci student, if you are learning Java and want some practice, these lab reviews are a good resource. Chapter 2 covers the concept of objects and primitive data.
Welcome y’all. So, as you all should know, there are three essays that you need to write for AP Lang. Synthesis Argumentative Rhetorical Analysis Synthesis If you’ve taken an AP history class, then you are in for an easy ride. Synthesis is exactly like the DBQ except a whole lot easier because you’re only... Continue Reading →
For this debate, I was in charge of the misconceptions about MLK's role and motives in the Civil Rights Movement while my partner was in charge of what he actually did (or didn't do) so I only have half the argument. Synthesis and Thesis: Abraham Lincoln is named the Great Emancipator in honor of his... Continue Reading →
