,,Hallo, liebe Anne! Wie geht es Ihnen heute?" Warum sieht Anne, meine Freundin aus der Kindheit, mich ganz komisch an? (Why does Anne, my childhood friend, look at me so weirdly?)
Da Anne ja schon lange mit mir befreundet ist, wäre es ganz komisch von mir, sie mit ,,Ihnen" anzusprechen. ,,Wie geht es dir heute?" passt dieser Situation besser. (Since Anne has been friends with me for a while, it would be weird of me to address her so formally. Informally addressing her would fit the situation better.)
Subject: Study Skills
As A increases, B slows down. As B speeds up, C grows larger. How does A relate to C? Express this in a formula: A) A=B/C B) A=BC C) A=1/BC D) A=C/D
This question will help you discern relationships between any variables and will allow you to "read" any math formula in simple terms. The answer is C, since A and B vary inversely (A=1/B) and B is proportional to C (BC).
Every time I open the door, one of my cats escaped. In order to get her to come back, I grab her bag of cat food and shake it. Upon hearing the sound of the shaking bag, she comes sprinting back into the house, and I give her a treat. In this scenario, what type of stimulus is the shaking bag, and what type of reinforcement does the treat represent?
The shaking bag is a conditioned stimulus, CS, (it is associated with the unconditioned stimulus, food), and the treat represents positive reinforcement (it is being given, i.e. it is positive, and it increases the likelihood of the cat responding to the shaking bag, i.e. it is reinforcing).
