Say “caused” “causal relationship” – SAY caused this causal relationship – be obvious about it. Focus on only those variables mentioned in the scenario (if sex is not mentioned, it was NOT a variable) If there was no causal relationship, then we can’t prove that sex CAUSED the relationship. Then you can go on to say that the results are consistent with cause and effect (causality). More help with types of variables! Suggestion about posting completed exercises on SAKAI after returned. Are there independent variables, are there quasi-independent variables? – These questions are almost ALWAYS present, there might now necessarily BE independent or quasi-independent variables.

    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.
