Urban geographies are vast and varied. In this class we have been presented with a particular reading of urban experiences. For this assignment, I want you to analyze a documentary, film, podcast, newspaper reading, or book of fiction about a particular urban experience. Or you can choose to talk about your own personal experiences of a particular city. Perhaps you want to watch a documentary that analyzes the experiences of undocumented people in cities? Or that showcases the effects of gentrification in Los Angeles? You may also analyze a song and what it says about the urban. Although you can choose the material of your choosing, you have to analyze the material utilizing course readings and themes. You must utilize at least two course readings in your analysis. Your task is to first tell me why you chose the material and what it presents us about urban geography. Next you tell me about the material and how it relates to course themes and readings. You will be graded on how well you weave in and analyze course readings and themes.
**3 PAGES, MUST INCORPORATE AT LEAST TWO READINGS**

The United States has been spending billions of dollars helping a pro-U.S. country, Ukraine, defeat the troops that invaded from Russia, traditionally a rival (and sometimes enemy) of the U.S.
Some people say that the United States has no business spending billions of dollars (helping Ukraine) that could be better spent in this country, and that if Russia keeps grabbing land from its European neighbors it doesn’t affect us, and American money should not be spent stopping the Russians. Why is this a valid argument and/or why is this not a valid argument?

or anything else that is not the main body of the essay. Only Word or PDF documents, please.

The course designer used vanuatu as an example.

Instructions
Building Graphs: Analysis
Note:
Upload only MS Word files, not WordPerfect, .pages, PDF, or any other text-based program.
Use only MS Excel, not Mac Excel. The programs are subtly different and your instructor cannot assist you if you run into problems.
The due date for this assignment is noted in this DropBox.
Any late submission will lose ten percent of the total assignment value (i.e. five points).
Papers will not be accepted beyond two weeks of the due date.
In this assignment students will use Microsoft Excel to build two graphs — one population pyramid and one climograph — for a country and city, and write a three-page paper about the methodology and process of graphing data and an analysis of their findings as it relates to the country / city.
Students will research their country (and the associated city) for information to understand the impact of climate on the inhabitants of that country or region. The textbook for this course should be your initial source of information as both introductory chapters cover these types of graphs. Additionally, the course designer has supplied two videos to aid students with the graphic part of the assignment.
Students will access the Assignments file titled “Population by age and sex — latest . . . ” and choose one country. Thereafter, the student will report their selection on the Discussion page of the same name so other students know that country / city has been claimed. No one may select a strikethrough country on the list or any country that has already been chosen by another student. Consult the Discussion board for this topic to see what countries have already been selected.
Students should read the textbook sections titled “Climate” and “Climate Change” in the chapter where their country is located. The course designer used Vanuatu as an example. Vanuatu is in Oceania, so pages 469-470 might reveal some information about the type of influence climate plays in that country. Students should also read about the “Population and Settlement” patterns found in their country. Relating how the environment impacts human lives and how humans modify the landscape are key to understanding the unique geographies we see across the globe. Students should initiate further research through their home campus library or via print sources as it applies to their country / city so as to round out the paper for a complete understanding of the physical and human geography.
Examples of the final versions of these graphs are found within the “Template for Building Graphs Paper” attachment in this Drobox. That template also shows how to write and organize the paper. It should go without saying that the writing of this paper follows basic English composition, but students sometimes believe something special is required per the geography discipline. Rest assured, writing is a skill that can be honed and perfected. The template description is intended to reinforce what you’ve already learned in your previous English courses and/or as an assistance to some students still learning how to write and organize a research paper.
Tutorial Videos
Two tutorial videos have been created to help students learn how to build graphs in Microsoft Excel. Those videos are located in the Content area of this course. Follow this string: Content / Getting Started / Semester Assignments / Video Tutorials. The videos are less than fifteen minutes in duration but provide enough detail that students can complete the technical aspects of the assignment. While the videos don’t cover every aspect of the graphing process students are likely to encounter, like a monthly average of sub-zero temperatures, enough detail is provided to minimize the learning curve. Students are expected to work out the unique aspects of their data sets. Match your final graphs as closely as possible to the ones found in the DropBox template.
Grading
50-point Assignment
Population Graph = 15 points
Climate Graph = 15 Points
Three-page Paper = 20 points
Graphs
Upload the MS Excel file.
The final version of both graphs will include:
Title (name of country or city)
Date of data (like year of census or last update of Wikipedia page for climate data)
Name (your name)
Appropriate legends (like for male / female or total temperature / precipitation)
Axis titles
Accurate data
Aesthetic rendering
Completeness
Paper
Upload the MS Word paper.
The three-page paper (MLA Style, Times New Roman, 12 pt., one-inch margins, double spaced) will be graded for:
Significant Analysis
Understanding of the Data
Methodology
Spellibcing / Grammar
Organization / Length
