This lesson is the beginning of Chapter 10 in my Psychology Class. This

already learned about the different types of conditioning and learning.

will write down the numbers. After 15 seconds, the third student

will write down the numbers. After the 30 seconds, the last
students will write down the numbers. Students will then graph
their results recording time along the x-axis and items correct
recalled on the y-axis.
5. Students will in the second experiment be given a list of topics
and given 2 minutes to memorize them. After that 2 minutes is
