Sponge Bob Science Investigations Regular

  1. 1. Warm Up – Page 18 <ul><li>Define the following terms: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Manipulated variable – </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Responding variable – </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Copy down tonight’s homework. </li></ul><ul><li>Need a volunteer to pass back lab safety posters – goes on page 14 </li></ul>
  2. 2. Draw Conclusions <ul><li>Using your analyzed data, determine what can be learned or discovered from your research. </li></ul><ul><li>Was your hypothesis supported or rejected? </li></ul><ul><li>What could be sources of error? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Communicate Your Results <ul><li>Communicate your results in a way that can be easily understood. Overview the steps you took in your investigation, and explain your conclusion. </li></ul><ul><li>Communicate your results of the penny investigation using at least one paragraph. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Bikini Bottoms Experiments Scientific Investigations Practice
  5. 5. Slimotosis <ul><li>Sponge Bob notices that his pal Gary is suffering from slimotosis, which occurs when the shell develops a nasty slime and gives off a horrible odor. His friend Patrick tells him that rubbing seaweed on the shell is a perfect cure, while Sandy says that drinking Dr. Kelp will be a better cure. Sponge Bob decides to test this cure by rubbing Gary with seaweed for one week and having him drink Dr. Kelp. After a week of treatment, the slime is gone and Gary’s shell smells better. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Slimotosis <ul><li>What is the independent (manipulated) variable? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the dependent (responding) variable? </li></ul><ul><li>What should Sponge Bob’s conclusion be? </li></ul><ul><li>What is wrong with this experiment? </li></ul>
  7. 7. Marshmallow Muscles <ul><li>Larry was told that a certain muscles cream was the newest best thing on the market and claims to double a person’s muscle power when used as a part of a muscle-building workout. Interested in this product, he buys the cream and recruits Patrick and Sponge Bob to help him with an experiment. Larry develops a special weight-lifting program for Patrick and Sponge Bob. He meets with them once a day for a period of two weeks and keeps track of their results. Before each session, Patrick’s arms and back are lathered in muscle cream, while Sponge Bob’s arms and back are lathered with regular lotion. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Marshmallow Muscles <ul><li>Which person is in the control group? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the independent (manipulated) variable? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the dependent (responding) variable? </li></ul><ul><li>What should Larry’s conclusion be? </li></ul>Time Patrick Sponge Bob Initial Amount 18 5 After 1 Week 24 9 After 2 weeks 33 17
  9. 9. Krusty Krabs Breath Mints <ul><li>Mr. Krabs created a secret ingredient for a breath min that he thinks will “cure” the bad breath people get from eating crabby patties at the Krusty Krab. He asked 100 customers with a history of bad breath to try his new breath mint. He had 50 customers (Group A) eat a breath min after they finished eating a crabby patty. The other 50 (Group B) also received a breath min after they finished the sandwich, however, it was a regular mint without the secret ingredient. Both groups were told they were getting the special breath mint. Two hours after eating the crabby patties, 30 customers in Group A and 10 customers in Group B reported having better breath than they normally had after eating crabby patties. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Krusty Krabs Breath Mints <ul><li>Which people are in the control group? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the independent (manipulated) variable? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the dependent (responding) variable? </li></ul><ul><li>What should Mr. Krab’s conclusion be? </li></ul><ul><li>Why do you think 10 people in Group B reported fresher breath? </li></ul>
  11. 11. Out Activity – Page 18 <ul><li>Create a flow chart or mind map that explains the steps in the scientific method. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember, the steps do not have to go in one set order, so be sure to show that with arrows in your chart. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Make Sure You Know <ul><li>Observations, Inferences, Predictions, Classifying, Models and Simulations, Communicating – what they are and be able to identify examples </li></ul><ul><li>Metric system – tools, units, and prefixes </li></ul><ul><li>Lab safety rules </li></ul><ul><li>Scientific method – steps and be able to identify variables </li></ul>
