Investigation Skills

  1. 1. Investigation skills assessment (ISA)terms <ul><li>Look at the definition of the word that applies to an investigation skills assessment (ISA) then click on the white box next to the word to check your answer: </li></ul><ul><li>Return to the questions then click on the large yellow box for the next definition. </li></ul><ul><li>Need to be downloaded to work on PowerPoint. </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>This is the variable that we change (or choose) in our investigation. We plot it on the x-axis of a graph. </li></ul>Continuous variable Systematic error Categoric variable Reliable Independent variable Evidence Valid Control variable Discrete variable Calibration Zero error Dependent variable Random error Accurate Ordered variable Fair test Precise Data
  3. 3. Correct answer <ul><li>Well done-click here to return to the questions </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>This is the variable could affect our result but does not because we have kept it the same in all our experiments. </li></ul>Continuous variable Systematic error Categoric variable Reliable Independent variable Evidence Valid Control variable Discrete variable Calibration Zero error Dependent variable Random error Accurate Ordered variable Fair test Precise Data
  5. 5. Correct answer <ul><li>Well done-click here to return to the questions </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>This is the variable that we measure each time we change the independent variable. It is the result of our experiment. We plot it on the y-axis of a graph. </li></ul>Continuous variable Systematic error Categoric variable Reliable Independent variable Evidence Valid Control variable Discrete variable Calibration Zero error Dependent variable Random error Accurate Ordered variable Fair test Precise Data
  7. 7. Correct answer <ul><li>Well done- click here to return to the questions. </li></ul>

  23. 23. Correct answer <ul><li>Well done </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>Error which affects all of your results. You cannot compensate for them by taking an average of lots of readings. Your results will be inaccurate and will not be the same as the true value. </li></ul>Continuous variable Systematic error Categoric variable Reliable Independent variable Evidence Valid Control variable Discrete variable Calibration Zero error Dependent variable Random error Accurate Ordered variable Fair test Precise Data
  25. 25. Correct answer <ul><li>Well done </li></ul>

  27. 27. Correct answer <ul><li>Well done </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>Your results can be described by this word if you are measuring the actual thing you want to measure AND your results are accurate. </li></ul>Continuous variable Systematic error Categoric variable Reliable Independent variable Evidence Valid Control variable Discrete variable Calibration Zero error Dependent variable Random error Accurate Ordered variable Fair test Precise Data
  29. 29. Correct answer <ul><li>Well done </li></ul>
  30. 30. <ul><li>Errors which causes your readings to be spread about the true value. We can compensate for these errors by taking a large number of readings and find the mean (average) of them. </li></ul>Continuous variable Systematic error Categoric variable Reliable Independent variable Evidence Valid Control variable Discrete variable Calibration Zero error Dependent variable Random error Accurate Ordered variable Fair test Precise Data
  31. 31. Correct answer <ul><li>Well done </li></ul>
