Homework Help: Science (Hypothesis)

Posted by Jackie on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 at 9:48am.

Null: Mice prefer areas along the wall and areas along the edges equally.
Hypothesis: Mice show no preference for either area because their lack of explorative behavior and risk-taking nature will cancel each other out.
