    Module 1 question 14

    Post  murphy on Mon Mar 14, 2011 11:46 pm

    Hello everyone!

    I'm very new to the forum thing so if I make mistakes I'm sorry!!

    I have just started the CBM course and am a bit stuck on question 14 in the module questions. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I have completed three courses in three years, Canine Studies at Oxford college, Behaviour and pyschology at compass and Cynology at compass, I managed somehow to acheive A or A+ in all modules of all of the courses (I have no idea how), and I am now starting this new course with compass, and Im confussed already...

    If anyone could shed any light I would be very greatful.

    Hi Murphy

    Welcome to the forum and the course!

    Think around schedules of reinforcement. What would happen if the dog gets fed at the same time every day and nothing else in between vs the dog who gets fed at random times and may get a titbit as well.

    Hi Murphy,

    Welcome to the Forum. Not commenting on the question as I am sure Olwen has provided a 'fresher' perspective on this, as I did the Course a few years ago and do not always have the paperwork to hand.

    I just wanted to say 'Hi' and very impressed with the good grades you have been getting, you must have found your 'niche' learning about Dog Behaviour - well done.

    Hi there

    thanks a million for the heads up. I think that I have worked it out at last, it has only taken 3 weeks? Complicated though.

    Thanks for the warm welcome I will keep you posted on the slow progress!!

    Hi Lisa

    Yep its Simon, Murphy is my dog but I always use his name to log onto any sites? Bit mad....

    How are you finding module two? Im finding it interesting and fun I have to remember back many years to genetics a level. Nearly finished it though, should have it done by next weekend.

    Keep in touch

    Hi Simon

    Am really loving it. Just typing it up and finishing it off now. I never did A levels stopped at GCSE's so it is a whole new experience for me. It is making me think which is great. I wanted a course that would push me, which this is doing, but I'm not struggling.

    Hi Lisa

    I have a really quick question on module two question 2.7. It asks for a table with the four off spring phenotypes on the table, then under that it gives you the chromosome table. Is the answer as easy as filling this table in then listing the phenotypes and their alleles?
    I must be having a blank moment.... can it be that simple?

    Cheers

    That's a very good question!!!! I am just getting to write that one up, so, what I am planning is yes doing the table and maybe writing up some more info on the process. Maybe some others could shed some light?

    Also I am a bit confused with question 11, are they meaning natural behaviours or behaviours that can be trained?

    Just reading that question I would take it as natural behaviours rather than learnt.

    The book why does my dog and how dogs learn have good sections on wolf and dog behaviours I think, I have to go and look them up!

    As for question 2.7 I was going to list the genotypes of each possibility and put whether they are homozygous or not, dominant or recessive, and the result of colour and coat. Including ratios and percentages.??

    It just seems a little bit easy compared to all the other questions
