1091001notesWeek11 © 1 Dr Mc’s Philosophy 001 (1091) Lecture Notes, Week 11 © Assignment #6 (the last one!) is available on the Net. It is due in your tutorial next week (week 12, 23-27 March) Second midterms to be returned next week, with a graph of results shown in lecture. Back to correlations Suppose there is a positive correlation between A and B in population p. What follows? Most A are B [in p]? No —All that’s required is that the percentage of A that are B is greater than the percentage of ~A that are B [in p]. Perhaps it’s not the case that most students who attend class regularly get good grades, but there might still be a correlation between attending class regularly and getting good grades. Example: Only 40% of students who attend regularly do well, but only 30% of those who don’t attend regularly do well. More A are B than ~A are B? No the size of the sub-populations could be different. What if only 100 people attend class regularly and the remaining 330 don’t. Of the 100, say 70 do well. Of the 330, say 100 do well. Nonetheless, attending class regularly is positively correlated with doing well.

### What students are saying

• 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.
