To examine carefully and in detail so as to identify causes, key factors, and possible results
Just digging up an idea!
Conclusion drawn from an observation.
The ability to be depended on, as for accuracy, honesty or achievement
Rain, Snow, Sleet or Hail – the mail must be delivered.
Factor that stays the same through all phases of an experiment.
Standard used for comparison in an experiment
Data that is usually numbers, usually measurements with units
Data recorded as descriptors - descriptions
A condition that is changed in order to find out the effect of that change
Single factor in an experiment that the experimenter changes.
MIX Manipulated - Independent Variable – X-axis To insure a fair test, a good experiment has only one independent variable
Factor that will be measured in an experiment
The scientist focuses his or her observations on the dependent variable to see how it responds to the change made to the independent variable. DRY Dependent Variable – Responds – Y-axis
To examine carefully and in detail so as to identify causes, key factors, and possible results.
+ EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS An experimental investigation is one in which a control is identified. The variables are measured in an effort to gather.

Experiments. Scientists use an experiment to search for cause and effect relationships. They design an experiment so that changes to one item cause something.
Variables What are Variables? Factors that can change in an experiment.
Independent Variable is what you what you change in the experiment. You many only change 1 thing at a time. Some people nickname it the I-do variable.
