Effective Writing

Rule 1. Use concrete rather than vague language. Vague: The weather was of an extreme nature on the West Coast. This sentence raises frustrating questions: When did this extreme weather occur? What does "of an extreme nature" mean? Where on the West Coast did this take place? Concrete: California had unusually cold weather last week. Rule 2. Use active voice whenever possible. Active voice means the subject is performing the verb. Passive voice means the subject receives the action. Active: Barry hit the ball. Passive: The ball was hit. Notice that the party responsible for the action—in the previous example, whoever hit the ball—may not even appear when using passive voice.

Functions: Domain and Range

Functions v. RelationsLet's return to the subject of domains and ranges. When functions are first introduced, you will probably have some simplistic "functions" and relations to deal with, usually being just sets of points. These won't be terribly useful or interesting functions and relations, but your text wants you to get the idea of what the domain and range of a function are. Small sets of points are generally the simplest sorts of relations, so your book starts with those. For instance: {(2, –3), (4, 6), (3, –1), (6, 6), (2, 3)} The above list of points, being a relationship between certain x's and certain y's, is a relation.

The Bedford Introduction to Literature

The Bedford Introduction to Literature responds to the teaching and learning needs of all kinds of literature classrooms -- and composition courses where literature is a focus. Author Michael Meyer understands that a particular challenge for instructors is that students do not necessarily see literature as relevant to their lives. They may be new to the study of literature, may have difficulty reading it, and may lack confidence in their critical abilities and writing skills. With these factors in mind, Meyer has put together a lively collection of stories, poems, and plays from many periods, cultures, and themes, with voices ranging from the traditional to the latest and hottest contemporary authors.
