January 13, 2012 The mass of an aluminum cube is 10.0g. The cube has a density of 2g/cm³. What is the volume of the aluminum cube?
January 17, 2012 Number the steps of the scientific method below: (SUMMARIZE) –___ Form a hypothesis –___ Conduct experiment and collect data –___ Determine the problem or question –___ Design an experiment –___ Analyze data and draw conclusions
January 18, 2012 Identify the IV and the DV. –If I exercise daily, then I will lose weight.

January 23, 2012 Identify the IV/DV and write a formal hypothesis for the problem below. What affect does watching TV have on a person’s weight?
January 24, 2012 A researcher is curious to find out what affect classical music has on people’s levels of relaxation. He suspects that listening to classical music will make people feel more calm and relaxed. He lets Group A listen to classical music for one hour. He lets Group B sit in a quiet room for one hour (they hear no music). After one hour, he monitors the heart rate of each participant to measure their level of relaxation. Identify: IV, DV, Control Group, & Experimental Group
