Theoretical vs. Experimental "Snake Eyes" & Changing Box Dim

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

1) Calculate the theoretical probability of rolling "snake eyes" or two ones with a pair of dice. Compare the theoretical probability of the results of Mike's experiment. Are the theoretical and experimental probabilities the same? Explain any differences.

See the attachment for the data of Mike's experiment.

2) Jeff built six rectangular boxes. His first box measured 2' X 2' x 2'. He then changed one of the dimensions and built a second box with a volume that was ¾ the volume of the first box. He continued this sequence, changing the same dimension each time, until he had 6 boxes.

a) Draw and label Jeff's 6 boxes.
b) What is the sum of the volumes of the 6 boxes?
c) If you continued this infinite series, what would be the limit of the sum of the volumes?

Different perspectives of early psychology

1. Compare and contrast three different perspectives of early psychology.

2. Early behavioral psychologists demonstrated it is easier to modify behavior when the expected behavior is rewarded. For example, you compliment your child for doing well in school, or you get coupons for your next purchase because you spent so much at the grocery store.

1) Explain the benefits of using this type of behavior modification correctly.
2) Also explain some negative affects that can occur if the wrong behaviors are rewarded.
