I've stumbled and need some help now. The online class I am in does not have a lab component but some of the homework questions I'm coming across now are asking me to "design an experiment to test this hypothesis and explain it in as much detail as possible. . .". Are there some general rules I can apply to help me design experiments? Do you know of good source material? Is there some reference out there to help with this? I just don't even know where to start.
