Classification & Division
Transcript of Classification & Division
Why use it?
To separate and sort things so we can make sense of the world and how it is organized.
Words such as (classification) kinds, types, varieties, aspects, and (division) parts, pieces, and categories all suggest classification or division.
"The process of breaking a whole into parts."
"The process of sorting individual items into categories."
legos here are seen first as the whole (windmill) and then broken into parts (environment, buildings, people, and tools).
--The Parts that Make up a House
--Movies released in 2015
legos seen here as a random selection and then sorted into categories (by color, size, or shape).
IN BOTH class/div, all items in the set are used, but in division, all parts work together to make the whole, whereas in classification, all parts happen to be in this version of the whole set, and may not be in others.
--Types of Student Housing
--Any list of ten random movies
Don't mix categories
When catalogging cars, you wouldn't find any significant connection between sampling:
1. economy cars
2. German cars and
3. off-road vehicles
*Exercise part 2
Categories should be distinct
Categories should be:
--use SMART guidelines
--always fit into a category
--only fit into ONE category
Categories should be meaningful
You can divide the past Presidents of the United States in a variety of ways to determine facts about their politics. However, it would be useless to sort them by, say, their zodiac sign.
*Exercise part 3
Structuring a Class/Div Essay
Three Part Structure in Essays
**only cover one idea in a paragraph**
1. Main Idea: What is the category and its definition? OR What are all the categories?
2. Evidence: compare and contrast the categories
3. Why does this category/all these categories provide meaning to understanding the group?
