Hello Ms. Claassen, my name is A.M.. I need help with finding sources with the right information for my IA in math studies. I am doing my project on the number of alcohol related accidents and the number of alcoholic beverages sold in the US. I am having trouble finding the number of beverages sold in all 50 states, is there a particular website that will be able to help me with this.
From her email I sent her 2 emails with links and graphs associated with her research. We then met in the library to go over the resources I sent her. With us meeting, I helped remind her of the citation tool Easy Bib and what sources she should site.
