Description
Michael Matthews September 20, 2011 Psychology Lecture 3  Exam Outline: Testing only chapter 1 and 2. Chapter 1-14. Chapter 2- 21. Stats- 15. Correlation coefficient, mean, median, and mode. Stats from concepts.  What methods do we use to study human behave? The first technique is called naturalistic observation, which is essentially just seeing what happens.

This means deep study of a single individual (N=1). Get data from many different resources to try and get some understanding of why the individual may be suffering. You can make predictions from surrounding environment. You cannot generalize principles of behaviours from a big group.  The third is the study of correlation (r)-the relationship between two variables.
