Scientific method

SCIENTIFIC METHOD

VOCABULARY


Ask a question research

ASK A QUESTION/RESEARCH

  • WHICH OBJECT WILL HIT THE GROUND FIRST, A HAVEY METAL BALL OR A LIGHT WOODEN BALL??

  • WHAT HAVE OTHER SCIENTISTS LEARNED ABOUT THIS TOPIC?


Hypothesis

HYPOTHESIS

  • A SHORT STATEMENT THAT SAYS WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN AND WHY. THE MORE SPECIFIC THE BETTER!

  • EXAMPLE: THE METAL BALL WILL HIT THE GROUND FIRST BECAUSE IT IS HEAVIER.


Procedure

PROCEDURE

  • STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PERFORM THE EXPERIMENT


Observations

OBSERVATIONS

  • RECORD YOUR OBSERVATIONS, KEEP A RECORD OF WHAT YOU SEE AS YOU PERFORM YOUR EXPERIMENT


Conclusions

CONCLUSIONS

  • ANALYZE WHAT YOU OBSERVED. ANSWER WHETHER OR NOT YOUR OBSERVATIONS PROVED OR DISPROVED YOUR HYPOTHESIS ANDY WHY.

  • THIS ALSO INVOLVED SHARING YOUR FINDINGS.


Inference

INFERENCE

  • THIS IS WHEN WE COME TO A CONCLUSION BASED ON OBSERVATIONS


Variable

VARIABLE

  • ANY PART OF AN EXPERIMENT THAT CAN CHANGE


Controlled variable

CONTROLLED VARIABLE

  • THE PARTS WHICH ARE NOT BEING TESTED. THESE VARIABLES MUST STAY THE SAME.


Independent variable or experimental variable

INDEPENDENT VARIABLE OR EXPERIMENTAL VARIABLE

  • THE PART WHICH IS BEING TESTED. THE VARIABLE WHICH IS CHANGED BY THE SCIENTIST.


Dependent variable

DEPENDENT VARIABLE

  • THE PART OF THE EXPERIMENT THAT STAYS THE SAME, OR IS AFFECTED BY THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLE


Controlled experiment

CONTROLLED EXPERIMENT

  • AN EXPERIMENT IN WHICH TWO SUBJECTS OR GROUPS HAVE ALL VARIABLES IN COMMON EXCEPT ONE, WHICH IS THE VARIABLE BEING TESTED


Control group

CONTROL GROUP

  • THE GROUP WHICH DOES NOT HAVE THE VARIABLE BEING TESTED


Experimental group

EXPERIMENTAL GROUP

  • THE GROUP WHICH HAS THE VARIABLE BEING TESTED

TOMORROW WE ARE STARTING A PLANT EXPERIMENT. BE PREPARED TO GET YOUR HANDS A LITTLE DIRTY!


Plant experiment for class

PLANT EXPERIMENT FOR CLASS

  • OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WE WILL BE CONDUCTING OUR OWN EXPERIMENT, LIKE TIM AND MOBY DID.

  • WE WILL TEST A FEW THINGS

    • HOW MUCH LIGHT DOES THE PLANT NEED?

    • WILL IT SURVIVE ON SALT WATER? WITH NO WATER?

    • HOW MUCH DOES FERTILIZER HELP?

    • WHAT ABOUT A DRINK WE DRINK?
