lab06October 8, 20180.1Lab 6: Examining the Therapeutic TouchWelcome to Lab 6!After such an extensive introduction to programming for data science, we are finally movinginto the section of the course where we can apply our new skils to answer real questions.In this lab, we’ll use testing techniques that were introduced in lecture to test the idea of thetherapeutic touch, the idea that some practictioners can feel and massage your human energyfield.In [1]:# Run this cell, but please don't change it.# These lines import the Numpy and Datascience modules.importnumpyasnpfromdatascienceimport*# These lines do some fancy plotting magicimportmatplotlib%matplotlibinlineimportmatplotlib.pyplotaspltplt.style.use('fivethirtyeight')importwarningswarnings.simplefilter('ignore',FutureWarning)frommatplotlibimportpatchesfromipywidgetsimportinteract, interactive, fixedimportipywidgetsaswidgets# These lines load the tests.fromclient.api.notebookimportNotebookok=Notebook('lab06.ok')_=ok.auth(inline=True)=====================================================================Assignment: Assessing Models: Examining the Therapeutic TouchOK, version v1.12.5=====================================================================Successfully logged in as [email protected]1
0.1.1What is the Therapeutic TouchThe Therapeutic Touch (TT) is the idea that everyone can feel the Human Energy Field (HEF)around individuals. Certain practictioners claim they have the ability to feel the HEF and canmassage it in order to promote health and relaxation in individuals. Those who practice TT havedescribed different people’s HEFs as "warm as Jell-O" and "tactile as taffy".TT was a popular technique used throughout the 20th century that was toted to be a great wayto bring balance to a person’s health.0.1.2Emily RosaEmily Rosa was a 4th grade student who had wide exposure to the world of TT due to her parents.Her parents were both medical practitioners and skeptics of the idea of TT.For her 4th grade science fair project, Emily decided to test whether or not TT practitionerscould truly interact with a person’s HEF.Question 1:Discuss with the individuals around you how you would set up an experiment totest this.To set up an experiment for this, she could have TT practioners attempt to interact with somepeople’s HEF and not others and see if the people could feel a difference.0.1.3Emily’s ExperimentEmily’s experiment was clean, simple, and effective. Due to her parents’ occupations in the medi-cal field, she had wide access to people who claimed to be TT practitioners.Emily took 21 TT practitioners and used them for her science experiment. She would take aTT practitioner and ask them to extend their hands through a screen (through which they can’tsee). Emily would be on the other side and would flip a coin. Depending on how the coin landed,she would put out either her left hand or her right hand. The TT practitioner would then have to
