Please Help - Carrying Out a Practical Investigation

Postby Karen31Mc » Mon Feb 15, 2016 4:49 pm

Hi,

Can anyone offer me any advice, i am currently in the process of completing the results section, i have done the first part and am onto the Treatment of Results and my gosh i don't know where to start. I have been looking at sites explaining how to carry out a T-test but i just can't make head nor tail of it! I've been on this part for the past 2 hours! My tutor is on holiday this week but i have emailed her cover tutor, but thought in the meantime, i'd ask on here see if anyone could shed any light on it.

My assignment is due in tonight and i really don't want to have to ask for an extention.

Thanks in advance
Karen :?

Hi Karen - sorry, not got that far yet - currently trying to do a version of this for chemistry (planning a practical experiment) , but all the materials etc relate to the biology one that you're doing which is a very different animal altogether.
Hope someone can give you a steer soon ! :thumbup:

If you look in the library there is lots of information on how to do t-tests, there is also a t test calculator which will help you with the stats. The book on there is by a guy called Robson which is really good and takes you through how to do it by hand. Also don'y forget to use your topics on experiments as there information there to help you. For stats the best place to look is our library I think as we have found the eaier to understand sites for you.

Hope that this helps
