Developing a Question Using Variables

Created by Marcie Griffith 2012

Research questions are are framed around the possible relationship between an independent and dependent variable.

- Variable I will manipulate (change) in the experiment
- Only 1 independent variable allowed

- What I will measure
- Data I will record
- The result DEPENDS on my independent variable

What happens to ____________ when we

(Dependent Variable)

change ____________________?

(Independent Variable)

OR

How does ___________________ affect

(Independent Variable)_________________?

(Dependent Variable)

I noticed that students who won the most handball games, were those who could bounce the ball over their opponent’s head.

This made me wonder…

How much does the ball have to do with the bounce height?

ONLY 1 Independent Variable Allowed!

What happens to bounce heightwhen we change the color of the ball?

OR

How does ball coloraffect bounce height?

- What is the independent variable?
- What is the dependent variable?

What’s wrong here?

15 ft

Drop Height

10 ft

Drop Height

How might this impact our experiment?
