A new drug has been formulated to reduce hyperactivity for children ages 5-17. To test this I will be using 100 children that are randomly selected clinically labeled hyperactive child. 50 Children will be randomly assigned to the experimental group and the others will be placed in the control group. Both groups however will be told that they are being given the new drug (a single – blind study). The experimental group will be given the drug and will be asked to meet every day for two hours, at a designated location and will be observed on how they behave, with regard to the environment their being placed in is an applicable place to do their homework/read etc. The control group will be given a placebo and asked to meet together daily, for the same amount of time (but at a different location). The independent variable is the new drug and the dependent variable will be how the hyperactivity in the children changes (whether increasing or decreasing). Both the experimental group and the control group will be observed by 10 other psychologist and at the end of the trial period (2 weeks), we will hear what they have to say on the 5 children that they each observed. An average will be totaled of how many hyperactive bursts each of the children (from both groups) make. Inferential statistics will then be used from the averages (along with the other data from the experiment) to see how the results would be, dealing with a larger

1. In response to declining reading scores in local schools, John wrote an editorial suggesting that schools need to increase interest in reading books by providing students with incentives. Based on research showing a relation between use of incentives and student reading, he recommended providing a free Starbucks gift card for every ten books a student reads.
A. Explain how each of the following psychological concepts could be used to refute John's….

• One of the findings from Ainsworth’s attachment research was that children’s responses can fall into two categories: secure or insecure attachment. Securely attached children felt close to their mothers, safe, and more willing to explore or tolerate a novel experience, while insecurely attached children were more likely to react to the situation either with anxiety and ambivalence or with avoidance.
• One of the findings from Baumrind’s research….

Many pioneering researchers have devoted their careers to understanding how we learn. These researchers included Ivan Pavlov, John Watson, John Garcia, B.F. Skinner and Albert Bandura. Ivan Pavlov researched classical conditioning. This is a type of learning in which one learns to link two or more stimuli and anticipate events. Pavlov researched a dog and how it began to salivate at the sight of food, the bowl for the food, the person delivering the food, and even the sound of the person’s….
The independent variable is the group receiving feedback. The dependent variable is how much each group correctly identified the figures. The independent variable will not change in the experiment and the dependent variable's outcome will rely on the independent factor.
The foveal is the small pit, in the retina, which provides the clearest and sharpest vision. The participants' foveal vision are needed to be highly active so they can best identify the "geometric figures." Feature detectors….
1) Explain the relationship between continental drift and the formation of the Earth’s Oceans?
-The relationship between continental drift and the formation of the Earth’s Oceans stems from plate movement that occurred on Earth. There is a theory that all the continents were once all one big piece of land named Pangaea, and over millions and millions of years the land of Pangaea started to split apart into many different continents. It divided Panthalassa, the large global ocean that….

A.) Graph #1
The rate of reaction from 0-30 minutes is 0.34667; r=10.4μM /30 minutes
The reaction was observed after 30 minutes because the reaction rate eventually slows down and the enzyme reaches its maximum potential. Since the enzyme is using the substrate so quickly, the substrates concentration depletes. That means the rate will slow down. Our graph shows that after about 40 minutes, the enzyme….

A). The chemical composition and structure of proteins seems quite confusing at first but one it is broken down into levels it is much more understandable. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins and they contain amino, carboxyl and R groups. These R groups that are in the amino acids are what determine the properties of the specific amino acids. For structure, there are 4 levels. The first one being the primary level. These are made….
The behaviour of Anhul can be explained through the many views of psychology. The psychodynamic perspective describes that the unconscious mind and childhood events rules our present day behaviour. The psychodynamic view could be used to describe Anhul’s behaviour as perhaps he has childhood memories that are being held in his unconscious mind of feeling pressured to do well in school by his family, and these memories are impacting the way he handles school today.
In addition, sociocultural….

"Even though the renaissance had begun in main Italian city states by 1347, the rest of Europe was still basically Medieval in culture and outlook. Analyze how the Black Death put an end on to this medieval culture and hastened the development of the renaissance.”
The Bubonic plague, also known as Black Death invaded the bodies of 50% of the English population, flourishing them with welts, 104-degree temperatures, bruising, wretched stench, coughing and death within 24 hours.….
Thesis: The political actions of the anti-slavery movement were designed to "choke" slavery into extinction, rather than moving to end the practice in one fell swoop.
Missouri compromise: Unable to stop the spread of slavery altogether, abolitionists at least were able to restrict its spread.
Mexican War: A setback for the anti-slavery forces, as slavery was permitted in the newly absorbed territories, which lay below the line set in the Missouri Compromise. This helped galvanize both sides….
