### Transcript

• 1. UNDERSTANDING DEPENDENT & INDEPENDENT VARIABLES CHAPTER 0NE: INTRODUCTION TO www.sciencetutors.zoomshare.com
• 2. CIRCUS OF EXPERIMENT Objectives To recap and ensure that the independent and dependent variables are placed correctly for a range of experiments in tables. To record data from an investigation.
• 3. Starter Activity
• Do plastic bags of different colours have the same strength
Learning is fun when behaviour is good
• 4.
• Do different types of plants grow to the same size
Want to maximise participation? Listen, Focus and Contribute meaningfully.
• 5.
• Does ice melt quickly or slowly in water at different temperatures
Listen, Learn and Participate
• 6. DEPENDENT VARIABLE In an experiment that which is supposed to be changed by the independent.
• 7. INDEPENDENT VARIABLE In an experiment that which is supposed to be manipulated by you. The variable manipulated by the experimenter.
• 8. On a simple X-Y coordinate line graph the independent variable is always on the X-axis.  DATA ANALYSIS
• 9.
• List two independent variables that could affect how quickly or slowly the ice will melt. Why are the variables independent?
Listen, Learn and Participate www.sciencetutors.zoomshare.com
• Independent Variable: A variable in an experiment which is altered by the experimenter.
• Write down a list of variables that will be altered by you if asked to investigate:
• Photosynthesis in plants

• 11. MOVEMENT OF OBJECTS
• You are investigating the movement of objects on ramps. What variables will you change? And what variable will you keep the same?

• 12. Electromagnets
• How To Make an Electromagnet
