What is the relationship in which the ratio of the maipulated variable and the responding variable is constant?
They all use SI.
How do scientists whospweak different languages make their data understandable to one another?
A jagged line
If the relationship between the manipulated variable and the responding variable is a direct proportion, what will a ling graph of this relationship look like?
An experiment in which only one variable, the manipulated variable, is changed at a time is called?
A organized plan for gathering, organizing and communicating information is called?
A "Blank" is a way of organizing data that is used to show changes that occur in related variables?
The "Blank" is the variablethat changes in response to the manipulated variable?
A flight similator that helps astronauts prepare for a shuttle launch is an example of?
Because lab activities can involve hazardous materials, it is always important to read and inderstand and "Blank" that must be followed
Makes it easier to understand things that are too small, too large, or too hard to observe directly
In an experiment, if doubling the manipulated variable results in a doubling of the responding variable, the relationship between the variables is?
To communicate scientific results
Why do scientists speak at conferences and write articles in scientific journals?
A well tested explanation to a set of observation or experimental results
