Unit 1: Science Safety and Creating the Science Notebook

Analyze is: To examine carefully and in detail so as to identify causes, key factors, and possible results

Analyze is:

Analyze is not: Just digging up an idea!

Inference is: Conclusion drawn from an observation.

Inference is:

Inference is not:

Reliability is: The ability to be depended on , as for accuracy, honesty or achievement

Reliability is: Rain, Snow, Sleet or Hail – the mail must be delivered.

Reliability is not:

Factor that stays the same through all phases of an experiment.
Control is: Factor that stays the same through all phases of an experiment.

Control is:

Control is not:

Standard used for comparison in an experiment
Constant is: Standard used for comparison in an experiment

Constant is:

Quantitative is: Data that is usually numbers, usually measurements with units

Quantitative is:

Quantitative is not:

Qualitative is: Data recorded as descriptors - descriptions

Qualitative is:

Qualitative is not:

Variable is: A condition that is changed in order to find out the effect of that change

Variable is:

Single factor in an experiment that the experimenter changes.
Independent Variable is: Single factor in an experiment that the experimenter changes.

Manipulated - Independent Variable – X-axis
Variable is: To insure a fair test, a good experiment has only one independent variable MIX Manipulated - Independent Variable – X-axis

Independent Variable is not:
Kept the same!

Factor that will be measured in an experiment
Dependent Variable is: Factor that will be measured in an experiment

Dependent Variable – Responds – Y-axis
Variable is: 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

Variable that is changed!!
Dependent Variable is not: Variable that is changed!!
