1

What 6 things do you need in a scientific

Question from an observation
Prediction/ Hypothesis
Materials
Procedure
Results
Conclusion

2

The question from an observation should ask what?

What if, how or what effect will something have
Should lead to an experiment
Should yield quantitative or qualitative data
Often identify the independent variable

3

Prediction/Hypothesis should...

attempt to answer the question being investigated and determine outcome, and suggest a possible reason.
based on prior knowledge or observation

4

The materials should be ...

listed in specific amounts and sizes

5

What is verification?

When other people can replicate an expierement exactly to see if they get the same results

6

The procedure should...

Written in sequential manner
Variables must be identified and controlled

7

Whats the 4 types of variables?

Independent
Control
Dependent(responding) Variable
Constant

8

Define the independent variable

Factor that will intentionally be changed

9

Control

The trial in the ivestigation that's used to detect change

10

Define: Dependent variable

Observed to see if its affected by the change made in the independent variable

11

Define: Constants

Factors in the experiment that must stay the same to make sure they're not having any effect on the dependent variable

12

Results

Should contain data, observation and measurments, and illustrations

...I know I spelled it wrong, get over it

13

A Bar Graph should be used to show...

Discrete data

14

Name the 4 parts that should be in a conclusion

State whether the prediction was supported or not

Answer the original question

Include inferences that can be made from the results

Include any additional questions that could be investigated or info that could be researched in the future

Any probs.

This is so tedious... I don't see why we're being tested on such elementary stuff.

Same. I'm glad this is over cuz....
