### Revision of Scientific Method

1. 1. mastrianascience.wikispaces.com
2. 2. 1 Background information
3. 3. Using the Internet ● Books (library) ● Specialists in that field ● to answer some questions before you start. www.dkit.ie
4. 4. 2 Aim Hypothesis Engineering goal Investigative question
5. 5. How do I pick 1ne? www.wix.com
6. 6. Aim Classroom experiments “To...” Proving a known fact
7. 7. Hypothesis Used with I.Q. and E.G. If the independent variable does this, then the dependent variable will do that.
8. 8. Engineering goal Stating why you built something.
9. 9. Investigative question Asking about the relationship between variables: What is the relationship between the independent variable and dependent variable?
10. 10. 3 Method
11. 11. What do we do to construct a method ? science.howstuffworks.com
12. 12. Identify the variables.
13. 13. Identify the equipment used, and describe HOW it will be used.
14. 14. Step-by-step instructions on how the experiment runs.
15. 15. All information in point form.
16. 16. 4 Results
17. 17. bschool.careers360.com
18. 18. Table All data is tabulated in the course of the experiment. Independent variable (unit) No units next to values Dependent variable (unit) No units next to values
19. 19. Y-axis Dependent variable Units 0 at the bottom, maximum value at the top. Graph A heading should indicate the relationship between the independent and the dependent variables. Always use clear indicators Connect the indicators using the line of best fit X-axis Independent variable Units 0 far left, maximum value far right
20. 20. Analysis Discuss (point form): Relationship of variables Outliers
21. 21. 5 Conclusion
