Writing the introduction to a research paper

In this exercise you will FIRST review the procedures of a correlational study and practice the statistical analysis and graphical presentation. You will THEN select an area for a simulated research (correlation-type) study, construct a literature review for it, and devise a hypothesis to be tested with hypothetical data. By the end of the course you will complete a full research paper based on this simulated data. This Introduction will be the first major section of that paper. NOTE that you will be turning in both the analysis/graphs of the first part and the literature review/hypthesis of the second half.
