Check in with participants
Check in with participants

  • How's it going?

  • Any issues we can help with?

  • How many students are you working with?


Collecting data
Collecting Data

Science & Engineering


What kind of data do scientist and engineers use
What Kind of Data Do Scientist and Engineers Use?

  • Determine how researchers in your field of study interpret their data.

  • Take note of any mathematical formulas or equations that will be needed to describe the results of the experiment

  • Take note of any information that will be needed to build a prototype.


Take notes each day of the project
Take Notes Each Day of the Project

  • Observations

  • Potential problems

  • Example of project notebook entry

Notice errors are crossed out,

never erased.


Take pictures
Take Pictures

  • Observational data

  • Reminders of events

  • Use for display boards

  • Must be in focus & understandable by anyone!


Numerical data
Numerical Data

Science

  • controlled variables

  • independent (manipulated) variable

  • dependent (responding) variable

Engineering

  • design criteria

  • prototype

  • rebuild



Monitor adjust if when something goes wrong
Monitor & Adjust …If When Something Goes Wrong

  • Most experiments/ designs do go "wrong”.

  • Keep a complete record in notebook!

Questions to ask when looking at data
Questions to Ask When Looking at Data

Science Investigation

  • Did I collect enough data?

  • Is the data accurate?

  • Did my results match my hypothesis?

    If, yes... How does the data supports this conclusion?

    If no… How does the data support this conclusion?

Invention

  • Did I collect enough data?

  • Is the data accurate?

  • Did my results match my design requirements?

    If, yes... How does the data supports this conclusion?

    If no… How does the data support this conclusion?


Graphs
Graphs

  • Used to show how the hypothesis was answered or the design met the criteria for improvement

  • Most controlled investigations will be a XY Scatter

  • At least one for all projects!

  • http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/help/user_guide/graph/whentouse.asp


Graphing resources

From the National Center for Educational Statistics

Kids’ Zone

  • How to choose the right type of graph?
