PART 2 – graphing results, analysis, conclusion and evaluation
Please use clear headings for these sections.
First you will graph your data in order to analyse your findings
* Note – Graphs can be computer generated or done by hand and must have titles, referred to and be integrated into the text, where you talk about them. You should use a variety of suitable graphs to display data. They must be clear, have labelled/numbered axis and titled. Be as creative as you want when illustrating all of your work.
Write your analysis under the headings of each Hypotheses. You will state what we expected with reference to our studies on coastal processes and landforms.( use what we have learned in class! ) You will analyse ( describe and explain ) the data you collected with regard to the expectations of a destructive beach, and state whether or not you have proved or disproved each hypothesis. DO NOT ANSWER THE RESEARCH QUESTION. You will do this in the conclusion.
The waves will be high ( 1 metre or more ) and frequent ( more than 12 per minute )
Use a table or pictograph to illustrate the data and graph the 2 class averages.
There will be a strong longshore drift
Analyse your findings referring to prevailing wind, direction of movement and time taken for any movement of material over 10m. If it is over 3m per minute then it is considered strong.
5. There is natural evidence (erosional landforms) and evidence of Mitigation (man-made defences) which illustrate that show the beach is being destroyed.
Using a field sketch and the observational notes you made as well as photographs present any evidence of the above. Use lots of photos and be creative here. Annotate your photographs to show what they illustrate.
Sum up what you found. Are your hypotheses mainly proven or disproven? Go through each hypothesis and state whether it’s proved or disproved, based on the summary of your findings you will conclude and give your answer to the question: “ Is the beach at Kamakura Inmuragasaki a destructive beach?”
Briefly evaluate (discuss positive and negatives)
the methods and how these might have been improved (not the execution of your peers!)
suggest how the study/methodology might be improved
You will have today’s class and a double period during seminar week to complete this task. You should submit it at the end of the priod next week. You may want to do some homework before then.
10A: Wednesday Oct 18th, periods 3 and 4
10C: Friday Oct 20th, periods 1 and 2
Using this reading, (source) create a poster or booklet explaining, with the aid of diagrams, the formation of:
Wave Cut Platforms
Your resource should also include how erosion and/or deposition processes produced the landform. To do so, explain the 4 processes of erosion and produce fully annotated diagrams. The four processes are:
Examples of each landform with at least one photograph and/or map of it’s location from anywhere in the world
Links to the sources of information of your images/maps/photographs should be cited
Our next unit will be about coastal processes and erosional landforms, leading to another field trip to Kamakura, but this time we will be collecting primary data about theInamuragasaki Beach on November 3rd
First, a few guiding questions to get us started.
What are waves?
Why do they come in different shapes and sizes?
What generates waves?
Why are waves different?
The prefect wave?
What different types of beaches are there?
Can you explain why they look different?
In groups of 3 or 4, you will explain one of the following features:
There’s a catch! Only one person in the group will be allowed to talk. The others will have to “act-out” your explanation without speaking.
Title Page includes the name of the experiment The Effect of Word Order on Memory: The Serial Position Effect centered and then in the lower left hand corner your name, your class and the date of submission on three separate lines
Abstract is written after the experiment and states what you are studying, the aim or purpose of the experiment you are conducting, a brief description of the method, some details about the participants, where the research was conducted, and briefly state your results. (1 paragraph)
Results : Graphs of your results with clear labels and titles, your results must also be clearly stated in written form in this section, including anomalies (2 graphs and a totla of 4 sentences)
Discussion: relates your results to the results of the study you are replicating, you state what your results mean in relation to your hypotheses, you state your conclusion, and how you would improve this study if you were to do it again (2 paragraphs)
Appendix: Include a summary table of raw data in the appendix that you can refer to, as well as all of your calculations (Images of your data tables, with titles and numbers, and all calculations)
Pick a commercial you think uses a few psychological techniques. It can be any type: video, poster, billboard, etc.
Identify and analyse 3 to 5 techniques the marketeers are using in their commercial advert(s). With reference to one or more commercials you will identify some of the the techniques used to make us buy.
For each technique, you will evaluate its effectiveness. You must use sources to support your argument, not your personal opinion. Find a study that has proven this theory.
The study might not be directly related to your topic or use the same terminology as the sources above. You need to refine your searches to find the proper study
Name each study by the lead researcher(s) last name(s) and mention the university where it was conducted at leats once.
Groups of 2
Present your findings in any way you fell will best convey your information: written google doc with hyperlinks, a voice over video (4 minutes max), poster, presentation (4 minutes max), interpretive dance, etc
Last class, we discussed how psychology is the study of human behavior, and how our environment, as well as our genetic makeup affect the ways we act. We also discussed reasons people are altruistic. Finally, we discussed ways researchers can measure the reason for altruism.
Today, we will discuss way to alter people’s behavior.
Part 1: Conditioning
Have you heard of Pavlov’s dogs? Discuss
How do we learn?
What has created your personality?
How do you know that you have free will?
Classical Conditioning – Ivan Pavlov
Ok that was a lot of information. Here’s a simpler version:
Here is an example of altering behavior on humans: Little Albert, one of the earliest studies of human behavior modification.
What conclusions can you make from the Little Albert experiment?
Are there any flaws in the experiment?
In your table groups, can you list the:
Part 2: Positive vs. Negative reinforcement
For each one think of a specific example that affect your own behavior.
In your groups, research and come up with the definitions, in your own words, of positive and negative reinforcement.
Read and complete the advertising question in the handout in groups of 2 or 3
You will embed the videos here (9A, 9C) and present your findings to the class
