7Scientific Method Form Title of InvestigationProblem:What do you want to learn?HypothesisPredict the answer to your problem?MaterialsMake a list of materials you are going to use in the investigation.ProcedureDesign a test to confirm or disprove your hypothesis.DataWhat happened? Record what happened.ConclusionWas your hypothesis confirmed or disproved?
8Lab Report Expectations Lab Investigation Title Problem: The problem in this class will always be written in the form of a question. Hypothesis: The experiment you conduct will test this hypothesis. On this project, the hypothesis should be written as an If…then…, statement using your past experiences and knowledge. (If……. Happens, then…..will be the result.) Materials: Be specific about the sizes, numbers, and types of materials you are using. If you use it, it must be included. If you use it, you must list it. List your materials in columns. No numbering. Procedure: The procedure should be clearly written in the exact order you will follow to test your hypothesis. List each step separately and number each step. Do not use the words “you” or “I in your steps. Data: Data should be recorded in an easy-to-read format such as tables, charts, graphs. Date should NOT be written in paragraph form. A title and labels are required. Conclusion: Your conclusion may be quite different from the hypothesis you wrote. This is OK! Your hypothesis MUST include all four parts: Tell whether the hypothesis you made was confirmed or disproved Restate the hypothesis Summarize the procedure you used and discuss any problems you encountered Present the data that confirmed or disproved you hypothesis
9Lab and Report Sample (done in class) Ramp RollProblemWhich ramp lets the ball reach the end first?HypothesisIf a ball rolls faster from a higher ramp, then it will also make it to the end of a ramp before a ball rolled from a lower ramp.Materials1 ramp high1 ramp lower2 balls, exactly the same sizeProcedureSet up both ramps.Set both ramps at the same starting pointSet a ball at the top of each rampLet get of both balls, simultaneouslyObserve which ball reached the end of their ramp firstRepeat trial three timesRecord data
10Con’t Lab and Report Sample (done in class) DataData of Who Makes it to the EndTrialsHigh RampLow Ramp#1YesNo#2#3ConclusionThe hypothesis confirmed. It stated that the ball would reach the end of the higher ramp first. A test was conducted by letting two identical balls roll to the end of 2 identical balls roll to the end of 2 identical ramps at different heights. As a result, the higher ramp did have the ball reach the end of its ramp first.

12Lab: Airplane Title Flying Near of Far Problem Which paper airplane will fly further?HypothesisIf a sharp knife will cut better, then a sharp plane will cut through the air and fly further.MaterialTwo identically pieces of paperTapePencilSticky noteProcedureFold one paper into a paper airplane with a wide nose.Fold another paper into a paper airplane with a pointed nose.Tape the top of each plane, together so it stays folded.Label the wide nose with ALabel the pointed nose with BWrite you name on each planeChoose a starting line on the playground.Throw plane A from the starting line.Observe how far it flew.Throw plane B from the starting line.Record your results.Repeat steps 8 through 12, two more times.Create a data chart to record data.
13Which Flew the Furthest? Con’t Lab: AirplaneDataWhich Flew the Furthest?TrialsPlane APlane B#1X#2#3X = went furtherConclusionMy hypothesis was confirmed. If a sharp knife cuts better, then a sharp plane will cut through the air better, and fly further. I made two planes, one with a wide nose, and one with a sharp nose. Then I threw them from the same start line to see how far they went. The results of my trials showed that plane B, the narrow plane flew further.
14Test PrepThe importance of writing the procedure steps in an investigation is so others can redo the investigation exactly like the original.Every investigation needs a variable.A variable must not change during any of the investigations.Only one variable may be in an investigation, at a time.
