Source analysis

I’m studying and need help with a Writing question to help me learn.

The primary purpose of this assignment is for you to think about and work with statistical concepts. However, it is important after you complete your writing that you take the time to review and edit it for coherence, completeness, and grammar as your team members and the grader will both need to read and understand what you are saying. Using a grammar and spelling program such as Grammarly is highly recommended, as excessive grammar errors and incoherent writing will lower your grade.
