7 Written questions

6 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The transmission of traits (via genes) from one generation to the next.
  5. Things that must remain the same between the experimental group AND the control group.
  6. The study of life.
