*Names were changed for privacy* AP Psychology Social Norm Experiment Person 1 Person 2 Person 3 Person 4 “Front-Packs” INTRODUCTION In our experiment, “Front-Packs”, our goal was to determine whether the students and teachers of Dubuque Senior High School would question a task done wrong, such as, wearing our backpacks backwards. We hypothesize that if we wear our backpacks on our front, then the people of Dubuque Senior High School will visibly react and think we are odd. METHOD Participants: Person 1, Person 2, Person 3, Person 4 and the people of Dubuque Senior High School. Apparatus and Materials: A backpack is for the experiment while a notebook and pen are for recording the responses. Procedure: On September 18 & 19, 2019, Person 1, Person 2, Person 3, and Person 4 wore their backpacks on the front of their bodies, rather than their backs. This was done in a non-specific pattern at various times of the day; each experimenter deciding when to change the position of their backpacks on their body. The experiment was conducted

    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.
