Terms in this set (15)
1st step of the scientific method: The purpose is when you state the problem. It describes the reason you are doing this experiment.
2nd step of the scientific method: Research is when you gather information and materials needed for this lab. This is where you will also identify the independent and dependent variables and the constant.
3rd step of the scientific method: A hypothesis is your educated guess /prediction as to what the results will be. Your hypothesis should be completed in the "If...then...because" style
4th step of the scientific method: The procedures are the steps used to design and do an experiment.
5th step of the scientific method: The results are the data that was collected and analyzed during the experiment. Results are often in the form of a table.
6th step of the scientific method: The conclusion is a summary or answer to the problem based on the data. Was your prediction correct?
REPEAT THE WORK
7th step of the scientific method: Scientists should never assume that the first result will always occur. A true scientist will test and retest in order to accurately determine consistent results.
The factors changed (or controlled) by the scientist designing the experiment; levels are set before doing experiment
The factor that is being measured during the experiment
Any factor that stays the same during the experiment—should have multiple ones—why? To ensure a "fair test" experiment
The group in an experiment that is NOT given any of the chosen amounts of treatment of independent variable; -can be negative or positive;
contains none of the treatment
contains all of the treatment
Data that uses numbers; data that is precisely measured
Data that is expressed in words—using language/letters/words to make observations that compare or rate in order
