  • 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!
