Students willmake a statement' explaining what they think will happen in their experiment. This is also referred to as an educated guess. This statement must be testable!
Design a test to check the hypothesis. Includes: a. Materials: a detailed list of all materials required to complete the experiment b. Procedure: numbered steps that include a description of how variables willbe controlled. -A control refers to a set of data used for comparison. It does not have an independent variable applied to it -A variable is what changes in your experiment -An independent variable refers to what is changed or tested and is usually depicted on the X-axis of a graph -A dependent variable refers to the resulting data that depends on the independent variable and is depicted on the Y-axis of a graph.
An organized collection of information or clearly stated observations which allow you to make a conclusion. Data can be displayed in many different ways (Pictures. graphs, charts, tables, paragraphs, etc)
A detailed description of howthe data is supports or does not support your hypothesis. Often includes questions for further investigation.
