Psychology Nov 6-10 (Mr. Ian Stewart)

The students have finished building mazes for the psychology lab. Mice will be integrated into the classroom soon.

Before that happens, there are two major events this week . . .

  1. Write-ups of the background science and proposals for the research methodology are due Tuesday, November 7. Students have been working on these write-ups for the latter half of last week and some “first drafts” have already been through editing. HARD COPIES ARE DUE ON THE SEVENTH.
  2. The students will be taking an assessment on Chapter 7 (Memory) on either Wednesday or Thursday depending on how other things in the class are developing. There will be a review day prior to the written assessment.

ALSO . . .

Notebook check will take place Thursday and Friday. Students should of course bring notebooks to class every day, but a formal check will be done this week prior to midterm.

These are all important graded events, so all students are encouraged to finish the week strong and get those grades secured.
