Jon Williams Prof. Zimmerman: PSY 105 Classical and Operant Conditioning As new owner of the circus, I have evaluated the entertainment and acts. There are going to be some changes to how things are done in this circus. We’re going to change the way we train the animals to do tricks and perform in their acts. We will employ two different methods of training to teach the animals their tricks. The first form of training we are going to use is called operant conditioning. We will use this train the tigers to learn an entirely new performance. The tiger’s new performance will be climbing to the top of a ladder, stepping onto a raised platform, and standing on its hind legs. Although this act is very interesting tigers don’t climb ladders very often, so we’re going to have to teach them to do it. The first step in this process is teaching the tigers to climb the ladder. In order to do this, we will use positive reinforcement to coax the tiger into climbing up the ladder.

    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.
