Being a fan of United States history, you are familiar with the many methods of apportionment applied to this problem to achieve fair representation in the US House of Representatives. You decide that apportionment (chapter 11, sections 1-4 in your textbook) is the best approach to solving this problem, but need to compare several methods and then determine which is actually fair.

  1. Using the Hamilton method of apportionment, determine the number of seats each state should receive.
  2. Using the numbers you just calculated from applying the Hamilton method, determine the average constituency for each state. Explain your decision making process for allocating the remaining seats.
  3. Calculate the absolute and relative unfairness of this apportionment.
  4. Explain how changes in state boundaries or populations could affect the balance of representation in this congress. Provide an example using the results above.
  5. How and why could an Alabama Paradox occur?
  6. Explain how applying the Huntington-Hill apportionment method helps to avoid an Alabama Paradox.
  7. Based upon your experience in solving this problem, do you feel apportionment is the best way to achieve fair representation? Be sure to support your answer.
  8. Suggest another strategy that could be applied to achieve fair representation either using apportionment methods or a method of your choosing.

You may perform your own calculations or use the Excel spreadsheet here to assist you. You must show some calculations in your document to demonstrate that you know how to perform these tasks. Be sure to compile your work in a Word document and submit it to the M5: Assignment 1 Dropbox by Saturday, April 12, 2014.

Assignment 2: Capitalism and the U.S. Economy

In a command or planned economy, the government, not the market, regulates the factors of production and economic activities considered essential to the function of the economy.  Economic decisions including what goods and services to produce (supply), how resources are allocated and regulated and how profits are distributed are made and implemented by the government.

How is the U.S. economy different from a command economy? Can the U.S. economy be called a true free market economy? Explain your answer by discussing the ways in which the federal government interacts with and regulates the U.S. economy in the context of both a command and free market economy. 

Provide examples and justify your conclusions. Quotations, paraphrases, and ideas you get from books or other sources of information should be cited using APA style. Help with citing sources can be found through the Academic Resources page under Course Home.

assignment 1 employee motivation 0

Assignment 1: Employee Motivation

Managers have observed that employees are of three types: committed, compliant, or resistant. Most organizational leaders prefer committed employees because they exhibit motivation and willingness to sacrifice for the organization. A perceived lack of justice in a myriad of areas very often prevents employees from committing themselves fully to the organization and its mission. The perceived lack of justice could include issues such as pay raises, promotions, choice of assignments, and location of work.

In this discussion assignment, you will reflect on what you have learned about employee motivation. You will share your thoughts on how outcomes can be improved by ensuring justice for all parties. Reflect on your own organizational experiences or research on employee motivation, and using two examples, respond to the following:

  • Explain why outcomes perceived as unfair can decrease employee motivation.
  • Discuss how procedural justice could have helped mitigate the negative effects.
  • Include an example for each to support your response.

Write a one- to two-paragraph response for each point.

By Saturday, November 2, 2013, post your response directly to the appropriateDiscussion Area. Through the end of the module review and comment on your classmates’ responses. Evaluate reasons presented and make suggestions for aspects of procedural justice and fair process that have not been taken into account.

Levels

Managers and professionals often pay more attention to the levels of their measures (means, sums, etc.) than to the variation in the data (the dispersion or the probability patterns/distributions that describe the data).  For the measures you identified in Discussion 1, why must dispersion be considered to truly understand what the data is telling us about what we measure/track?  How can we make decisions about outcomes and results if we do not understand the consistency (variation) of the data?  Does looking at the variation in the data give us a different understanding of results?
