### Scientific research method graphic organizers

1. 1. Name________________________ Block__________________ Step 1 Scientific Research Method (Hammer-bell experiment) Define your What was the alien’s problem? problem Step 2 Make Observations What observation did the alien make? What was the alien’s testable question? Step 3 Construct a hypothesis Step 4 Test your hypothesis with experiment. (Define your experiment) Materials What materials did the alien get? Experimental Group What was the alien’s hypothesis? What is the definition of an experimental group? What was the alien’s experimental group?
2. 2. Name________________________ Block__________________ Control Group What is the definition of a control group? What was the alien’s control group? Dependent variable What is a dependent variable? What was the dependent variable in the alien’s hammer bell experiment? Independent variable What is an independent variable? What was the independent variable in the alien’s hammer bell experiment? Step 5 Collect Data What procedure does the alien use to perform his or her experiment?
3. 3. Name________________________ Block__________________ Step 6 Record your data Table Step 7 Analyze data What did the alien do to analyze these data? What did the alien do mathematically: Draw what the alien did visually:
4. 4. Name________________________ Block__________________ Step 8 Repeat, Redesign or New hypothesis What reason could the alien have for repeating the experiment? What reason could the alien have for redesigning the experiment What reason could the alien have for forming a new hypothesis?
5. 5. Name________________________ Block__________________ Step 9 Peer review and Publish What does it mean to review? Who are the alien’s peers? If most of the alien’s peers do not think the experiment was accurate will it be accepted for publication in a scientific journal?
6. 6. Name________________________ Block__________________ Scientific Research Method (Blood Letting experiment) Write with a pencil in case you need to erase! Step Define your 1 problem Step 2 Make Observations What observation could you make? What is your testable question? Step 3 Construct a hypothesis Step 4 Test your hypothesis with experiment. (Define your experiment) Materials Experimental Group Control Group
7. 7. Name________________________ Block__________________ Step 4 Cont. Dependent variable Independent variable Step 5 Collect Data What procedure would you use to collect your data? Step 6 Record your data What data would you collect? Step 7 Analyze data What would you do mathematically? Draw a possible graph of your results based on your predicted outcome. Label your axes.
8. 8. Name________________________ Block__________________ Step 8 Repeat, Redesign or New hypothesis If you got the results you expected, is this step even necessary? Why or why not. Step 9 Peer review and Publish Before you publish your experimental proposal (i.e. hand it in to my desk) please have two other classmates check your work and have them sign here. __________________ ___________________ Reviewer notes about what author should fix or add to their proposal
9. 9. Name________________________ Block__________________ The Law and Theory of Grocery Shopping (instructions) 1. Make a title called “The Law of Grocery Store Shopping” Underneath the title; in black text write one paragraph covering the law of grocery store shopping. Laws are used to determine what will always happen. Laws do not tell us why events happen. 2. Make a title called “The Theory of Grocery Store Shopping” Underneath the title copy the law paragraph you wrote in step #1 above and paste it below this title. Next, using red colored text edit your law paragraph to convert it into a theory for grocery store shopping. To do this, you must add (in red text) the likely reasons why the events in your law paragraph always happened. If your theory is good, it can be used for all the times you grocery shop. This is because theories that survive are tested by many experiments (i.e. different trips to the grocery store.) 3. E-mail Mr. Robbins your final paragraphs. To get full credit you need to meet the following criteria. 1. Proper formatting (typed with correct titles and text colors) 2. At least 5 events must happen in your first paragraph about the law of grocery store shopping. 3. Your law paragraph should contain only events that always happen and should contain no reasons for why these events happen. 4. Your theory paragraph should contain reasons for why events happen. The reasons given should be true for every time you shop at the grocery store.

11. 11. Junior Mints Letter Name________________________ Block__________________ Write letter to Ima Wrong describing how she can design a good experiment to test her conclusion: Is the sweet spot is really on the back of people’s tongues. 1. Make sure you discuss each of the 9 steps of the scientific method. 2. Include these vocabulary words: Inquiry, Observation, Inference, Testable question, Hypothesis, Experiment, Independent variable, Dependent variable, Control group, Experimental group. Use extra paper as needed. You may choose to type your letter.
