Yh i put the males and females on the X axis and the percentages on the Y axis. And i labelled each bar with either aggression or friendly. Is that right?

Who else got 27 percent for the pie chart thing? I saw it was an obtuse angle so i estimated it had an angle of 100 degrees so i did 100/360 multiplied by 100 to get 27 percent

yep. y axis was the percentage of aggressive and friendly dreams. on the x, was split into 2 categories: friendly and aggressive. 2 bars under friendly for male and female %. then 2 bars under aggressive for males and females. Key: Male (shaded) Female (unshaded)

I put what you put also put how they're both hard determinism as well one being env. Deterministic and one being bio. Deterministic i also said how they both have application to real life aka token economy and Anti psychotics, what did you get for the synapse one

I forgot the actual questions. Something like mental representation and stuff. Helps you make short cuts when large amount of information are presented at once.

Damn i forgot about token eco and stuff but i added other stuff. It was only 8 marks so i think if i mention determinism and stuff i should get 8 marks anyway?

For schema I put that it helps us know what to do in certain situations, e.g. scanning your oyster/ticket when you get on a bus, this helps so that we don't get confused every time we get on. A disadvantage is prejudice and stereotypes, e.g. negative stigma towards muslims.

Is it okay I compared social learning theory to the biological approach? Social learning theory comes under the behaviourism right?
