In an experiment, because the scientist is changing this independent variable, this is going to change and the scientist will measure that change…
This is an educated guess of what is going to happen during an experiment – the scientist forms this at the beginning of the experiment….
Constant: something that scientist makes sure is the same throughout the experiment
Ex. Watering the plants the same amount of water or making sure you are testing the same person every time
Control: The part of the experiment that the scientist doesn’t change or add the variable to
Ex. The plant with the white light
The results of the experiment; is your hypothesis “right or wrong”?
We have done many labs in this class…
We have also talked about a lot of different experiments – with your partner, identify each part of each experiment – the first group to finish correctly WINS!
