What is my control group
Posted: Sat Mar 25, 2017 10:31 am
We are doing an experiment to see how many numbers a person can remember. We start with 1 and go all the way up to 10 numbers. We then will analyze to see what is the most common amount of numbers most people can remember. Our teacher has said we need to have an experimental variable, an experimental group and a control group. I think the experimental variable is changing the amount of numbers each time, the experimental group would be the people we are testing, but what would be the control group?? If it was a control variable, it would be that each person receives the same numbers, but if I need a control group what would that be??? I can not figure this out...please help!!
