Some 109ers had taken physics before, whereas others hadnt. Do you think that there was a strong correlation between having taking physics before and the final grades of the students? a. Yes, obviously the students who had taken physics before did a lot better. In fact, the course was too difficult and expected the students to know some physics in advance b. Yes, the students who hadnt taken physics before did a lot better, because they hadnt been traumatized by physics in the past c. No, there was no correlation between having taken physics before and the final grade Numbers: Y: 69% N: 71% Attendance + HW General Advice...
