6 Multiple choice questions
- NOT a guess!!! Theories attempt to EXPLAIN observations and experimental results. This leads to more questions that create more hypothesis that can support or reject the theory. Ex: There is no theory of gravity because scientists don't know enough about it to explain it well enough to agree on a theory.
- These are the results of an experiment; what you are measuring. The data for the experimental group and control group is usually expected to be different.
- Laws allow scientiest to make predictions. Usually associated with a formula. Ex: Law of gravity allows us to make predictions about the force of gravity.
- The transmission of traits (via genes) from one generation to the next.
- Things that must remain the same between the experimental group AND the control group.
- The study of life.
6 True/False questions
Control Group → The group in an experiment that is lacking (as best as possible) the effects of the IV.
Cell → A sequence of DNA that codes for a specific trait. Sometimes 1 gene = 1 trait; also many genes can = 1 trait
Ecology → The study of how organisms interact with their environment.
Reproduction → The change in the inherited characteristics of an organism over generations; sometimes quick, sometimes slow...depends on environment.
Genome → All of the genes in an organism, including mitochondrial DNA.
Independent Variable → These are the results of an experiment; what you are measuring. The data for the experimental group and control group is usually expected to be different.
