  • Lab Safety 100 What is the first thing you should do after a chemical spill?
  • Lab Safety 100 Answer Tell the teacher
  • Lab Safety 200 Why is cracked or chipped glassware a hazard in the laboratory?
  • Lab Safety 200 Answer The glass could crack or leak You could get cut
  • Lab Safety 300 How should a microscope be carried properly?
  • Lab Safety 300 Answer Microscopes should be carried with two hands: one on the arm and one on the base
  • Lab Safety 400 Why should specimens always be pinned down when dissecting?
  • Lab Safety 400 Answer To avoid slipping and possible injury to yourself or damage to the specimen
  • Lab Safety 500 What should you do before removing chemicals from a container?
  • Lab Safety 500 Answer Always read the label three times to be sure
  • Observation/Inference 100 What is the definition of inference?
  • Observation/Inference 100 Answer An educated guess based on observation and background knowledge
  • Observation/Inference 200 Observation or inference: It’s cloudy out
  • Observation/Inference 200 Answer Observation
  • Observation/Inference 300 Observation or Inference: It will rain on Friday
  • Observation/Inference 300 Answer Inference
  • Observation/Inference 400 Observation or Inference: There is a white board in the classroom
  • Observation/Inference 400 Answer Observation
  • Observation/Inference 500 Observation or Inference: There will be 14 Skittles in a package
  • Observation/Inference 500 Answer Inference
  • Experimental Design 100 What is the difference between the control and experimental groups?
  • Experimental Design 100 Answer The experimental group gets the factor being tested - the control group does not
  • Experimental Design 200 Why is it important to have a control group?
  • Experimental Design 200 Answer To have a basis for comparison
  • Experimental Design 300 Why is it important to have a large sample size?
  • Experimental Design 300 Answer To reduce chance results in an experiment
  • Experimental Design 400 Describe the difference between the independent and the dependent variables
  • Experimental Design 400 Answer
    • The independent variable what you are testing
    • The dependent variable is the data you collect
  • Experimental Design 500 Why is important to only test one variable at a time?
  • Experimental Design 500 Answer To obtain useful results – if there is more than one variable you don’t know which variable caused the result
  • Graphing Skills 100 What is the first thing you do when making a graph?
  • Graphing Skills 100 Answer Pick an appropriate title and create a key
  • Graphing Skills 200 Describe the differences between the x and y axes
  • Graphing Skills 200 Answer The x-axis is horizontal The y-axis is vertical
  • Graphing Skills 300 Which axis holds the dependent variable?
  • Graphing Skills 300 Answer The y axis holds the dependent variable.
  • Graphing Skills 400 The x-axis holds which variable?
  • Graphing Skills 400 Answer The independent variable
  • Graphing Skills 500 When you extend the trend line to predict results, you are using what method?
  • Graphing Skills 500 Answer Extra polation
  • Scientific Method 100 What is the first step to the scientific method?
  • Scientific Method 100 Answer Ask a question or identify a probem
  • Scientific Method 200 Tables, charts, and especially graphs are use to
  • Scientific Method 200 Answer Analyze data or show data more clearly
  • Scientific Method 300 What is a hypothesis?
