GE 10 Problem Set 1

I.

List down 5 old surveying instruments. Include a 2-3 sentence description


about its origin and use.

II.

Discuss how surveying is applied to your course (degree program), and how it
is applicable in our day-to day life. A 10-15 sentence discussion should
suffice.

III.

Given the following repeated angular measurements between two lines:


Compute for the
a. Median
b. Mean
c. Mode
d. Midrange
e. Range
f. Mean Deviation (from the
mean)
g. Variance
h. Standard Deviation
i. Final Expression for the most
probable value for the angle

NOTES:
a. This ProbSet is an individual activity. Use the allotted time for the class to
finish this.
b. Do not forget to cite sources, be it an internet or a very old surveying book.
c. Cheating in any form will be penalized by a grade of 5, or a date with the
Student Disciplinary Tribunal, depending on the gravity of the offense.
d. Write your answers in a Yellow paper. Write your name, student number,
GE 10 class section and page number on every sheet (if there are multiple
sheets). Staple the pages together if necessary.
e. Deadline is at the end of the class period (1 pm for the morning class and 4
pm for the afternoon class), same day (August 15). Submit the papers at my
pigeon hole at the GE Department office (MH 216)
f. There may be another probset for you to finish on Wednesday ;)
