Question 5 / 18 Physics 109 is an introductory course to Physics. Some 109ers had taken physics before, whereas others hadn’t. 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 hadn’t taken physics before did a lot better, because they hadn’t 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

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
