  33. Data

  34. ResultsPost graphs based on your results on the next 4 pages

  35. Day 21: My Data On the next two pages, you should insert graphs and charts related to your experiment. You may hand draw them or construct them on the computer and paste them into your notebook.

  36. My Data

  37. Day 22: ConclusionsTimeDate • Explain if you proved your hypothesis true or false. (If your hypothesis proved untrue, don’t worry. Just explain why.) • Ex. My hypothesis proved not to be true. My father caught more fish using regular worms than I did using or shiny worms.
