Identifying Variables – What will you change (Independent Variable)? What will you measure or observe (Dependent Variable)? What will you not change and not measure or observe (Constant Variables)?
Variables should be listed in your LOG.
On your planning page, write the problem or “question” your experiment will test and your hypothesis as to how you predict the experiment/design process will turn out.
List the materials required to carry out your investigation.
Write a numbered step-by-step procedure to show how your experiment/design process will be carried out. Include specific steps that you used to collect data on how your hypothesis is tested.
Conduct your experiment or begin your design process, being sure to follow safely rules. Keep careful, written records every day as you are working. Use a data table to collect your observations (results). Graph your results using either a line graph or bar graph. Graph is due!
