  1. the independent variable is the one you're manipulating. the dependent is the variable that you are measuring.

    Extraneous varaibles would include the fact that not every person with AIDS experiences the same symptoms and they will have varying helper T counts, viral loads, etc. Ethically, you need to consider the participant's confidentiality.

    hope that helps a little bit.
