    Hypotheses On the Origin of Birds Since the advent of the theory of evolution the origin of birds has been a thriving topic in science. Many ideas and hypotheses have been presented, but only two stand today: that birds are descendents of ancient thecodont stem reptiles, and that birds are the direct descendents of a group of dinosaurs known as the coelurosaurs. Both hypotheses pose many interesting and insightful ideas based on information obtained from the fossil record. There is not enough

  • Hypotheses on the Extinction of Dinosaurs

    Hypotheses on the Extinction of Dinosaurs In the early nineteen hundreds, dinosaur fossils were discovered and recognized around the globe. Greedy scientists and civilians, searching for their own prize skeleton, rushed to rip bones out of the ground, destroying the fossils as they went. It was not until later in the century that scientists and paleontologists began pondering how such widespread creatures disappeared. Currently, paleontologists debate the two main hypotheses of how the classic

  • Hypotheses Of The Effects Of Wolf Predation

    Hypotheses of the Effects of Wolf Predation Abstract: This paper discusses four hypotheses to explain the effects of wolf predation on prey populations of large ungulates. The four proposed hypotheses examined are the predation limiting hypothesis, the predation regulating hypothesis, the predator pit hypothesis, and the stable limit cycle hypothesis. There is much research literature that discusses how these hypotheses can be used to interpret various data sets obtained from field studies

  • Krashen’s Hypotheses of Second Language Acquisition

    Krashen’s Hypotheses of Second Language Acquisition For decades, foreign language teachers wandered in a scientific abyss. Until 1983, there had been little real research dealing with the ways in which someone acquires a second language. Teachers mostly used the audiolingual classroom model that had been in place for the past twenty years (or, even worse, the literally ancient grammatical translation model that had been used by civilizations millennia old). Clearly, language teaching methodology

    observation, hypotheses and experimenting steps in the scientific method. Observations included, noticing the lifeless behavior shown by the patients, their reflexes to moving objects, and the fact that they all had cases of encephalitis before. After he did all the research he formed several hypotheses and experimented to prove them. Robin Williams used strobe lights, talked to them, measured their brain patterns, and used games such as a Ouija board to prove some of his hypotheses. After he formed

  • Correlation Between Lessons and Number of Mistakes Made

    Correlation Between Lessons and Number of Mistakes Made Introduction This experiment has the aim of proving the hypotheses (that I shall develop) by handling data and managing it effectively to instigate realistic results. The hypotheses will be based upon test results from a driving school. Hypotheses: I hypothesize that the number of mistakes made by people will decrese if the number of hours that they spent on lessons increased. This is because more lessons will instigate an increase

  • Framing the Innateness Hypothesis

    1582 Words  | 7 Pages

    acquisition is a phenomenon associated with the maturation of a language faculty or "organ," while the other side argues that language acquisition is instead a process of generalization from experience. Underlying these two positions are specific hypotheses regarding the resources the child brings to the task of acquiring language. The rationalist postulates the existence of innate ideas and/or principles, while the empiricist does not. Chomsky's position, as he consistently has acknowledged for decades

  • The Placebo Effect: How Strong Is The Power of Suggestion?

    852 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Placebo Effect: How Strong Is The Power of Suggestion? For years, scientists have sought to find an explanation for the placebo effect. Although many hypotheses exist, there is no one reason defining why or how the placebos work. Some researchers argue that the phenomenon doesn't even occur; that the placebo effect is merely random error and that any improvement said to be caused by a placebo is simply a spontaneous recovery in the patient's condition (2)(3). Other scientists argue that

  • A Study of the Changes in River Processes

    will be studied so conclusions can be made about the changes to characteristics of a river with distance downstream. Aims and Hypotheses The overall aim of this study is to investigate the changes in river characteristics downstream along Loughton Brook. To investigate these changes in more detail a range of hypotheses will be tested. These hypotheses are: 1. The width of the river channel will increase with distance downstream. I expect to find this because in the long profile

  • Investigation to Find Correlation Between Given Data

    Title: The purpose of this investigation is to find if there is any correlation between two variables extracted from 5% random sampling of the Mayfield Data provided. Introduction: In this GCSE coursework, I will be trying to prove three hypotheses, by using statistical techniques we have learned throughout the GCSE course. My line of enquiry will be based on the relationship between a pupil's IQ and various Key Stage 2 results. I will consider using methods such as histograms (or bar
