Proposal: Submit a Research Proposal for instructor approval that includes your main variables, any control variables, how they are labeled, what your value ranges are, your specific data source, and your tentative research question. Submit the research proposal to your assigned group’s Dropbox basket no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 4. (These Dropbox baskets are linked to Turnitin.)
Research Topic: How does gas mileage depend on the [blank] of the vehicle? [Blank] could be weight, engine size, seating capacity, size (e.g. compact, sub-compact, SUV), etc. There should be multiple predictor variables included.
Here are a few of my ideas. Please feel free to add/change what I’ve provided.
Main variables: engine size & seating capacity
Control variable(s): heavy breaking or acceleration, speeding, or idling
NOTE: FOR “SPECIFIC DATA”, WE HAVE TO COME UP WITH OUR OWN DATA. SO ANY DATA FROM THE INTERNET CAN BE USED, BUT SHOULD BE CITED (APA FORMAT).
