6 True/False Questions
Reproduction → Process by which organisms make more of their own kind. Can be sexual or asexual.
Scientific Theory → 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.
Control Group → The group in an experiment that is lacking (as best as possible) the effects of the IV.
Genome → A sequence of DNA that codes for a specific trait. Sometimes 1 gene = 1 trait; also many genes can = 1 trait
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.
