Critical Thinking

Definition:

As a guide to belief and behavior, critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of deliberately and skillfully conceiving, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating knowledge obtained through, or created by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication.

Title of assignment #1: GEEN 3314: Electric Circuits and Electronics Lab

LABORATORY REPORT

Introduction:

In order to test the resistivity of each resistor in this experiment we also take current readings at each resistor. The current is then computed using nodal and mechanistic analysis, and the results are compared to the observed and calculated values.

Experimentation is linked to critical thinking because at each stage, you must think critically and consider how to proceed. This process can be made easier by validating the branch-current-analysis approach through experimental observations. Testing the mesh- (loop-) analysis technique with experimental measurements is something you should really consider. and to use practical observations to demonstrate the correctness of the nodal-analysis approach.

I have learned how experiments help you improve reasoning, critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making skills. Physics equips students with the skills they need to research nature, conduct experiments, and improve their ability to understand and comprehend the world around them.

Reflection:

My experience was highly instructive; I learned how critical thinking is crucial while performing any work, particularly lab activities.

After critical analysis I got to know If the circuit has more than one voltage or current source in an electrical system how it works. The superposition theorem may be used to determine the influence of each source on the components. All linear circuits, such as resistors, capacitors, and inductors, are susceptible to superposition.

I will advice my juniors to critical analyze the experiment before performing it and to take a good care at each step and if I have to do this assignment again, I would definitely think more critically and deeply before performing.

Title of assignment #2: GEEN 3314: Electric Circuits and Electronics Lab

LABORATORY REPORT

Introduction:

We are going to test the resistivity of each resistor in this experiment. We also take current readings at each resistor. The current is then computed using nodal and mechanistic analysis, and the results are compared to the observed and calculated values.

Because you must think critically and evaluate how to continue at each level, experimentation is tied to critical thinking. The branch-current-analysis technique may be validated by experimental observations to make this procedure easier. You should strongly consider putting the mesh- (loop-) analysis approach to the test using experimental observations. and to illustrate the accuracy of the nodal-analysis technique through real observations.

Experiments have taught me how to increase reasoning, critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making abilities. Physics teaches pupils how to investigate nature, perform experiments, and develop their capacity to perceive and understand the world around them.

Reflection:

My experience was quite informative I got to know how critical thinking is important while doing any task especially in lab tasks.

I discovered this after conducting a careful analysis. In this lesson, we’ve covered the Nodal Voltage Analysis (NVA) and the Mesh Current Analysis (MCA), both of which are based on Kirchhoff’s Circuit Laws (MCA). These methods are more efficient for circuit analysis since they arrive at a solution faster than KCL and involve less mathematics. Each analysis has a series of steps that must be performed; the approaches are listed at the beginning of each section.

I will advise my juniors to critically study the experiment before executing it and to take great care at each stage; if I had to complete this assignment again, I would think more critically and carefully before performing it.

Title of assignment

#3 (Muslim Empires)

Introduction:

I also used my critical thinking abilities because we must apply them in order to learn more. Muslims established three significant empires in the Mediterranean, Iran, and South Asia between 1453 and 1526: the Ottoman, Safavid, and Mughal empires. To make it easier to understand, we first used the map that describes the issue, and then we discussed the most important founding Muslims. All of the essential aspects that were discussed were summarized at the end of the presentation.

Reflection:

This was a project for my history class. Communication abilities are required for this task. In the form of a twenty-minute presentation, I spend a lot of time introducing myself. This assignment allows me to exhibit my communication skills while also allowing me to discover myself in ways I never imagined possible. The presentation was done in a decent method by chatting and discussing the topic with my group before presenting it, making the process easy for the group members.
