Finding a Causal Effect

by James Tierney

Penny and Leonard return early from dinner because Leonard hits his head on the table while retrieving an olive. On the car ride home Leonard vomits out the window. Penny believes they should go to the hospital because he may have a concussion but Leonard assures her that it's probably just because he gets carsick. This is an example of not knowing which factor caused the vomiting and can be showed to students when introducing the idea of identifying causal factors.
