As usual, Stephen and Janet were late to class and all the other students were already in the lab. “What are we supposed to do?’’ asked Janet. “I don’t know,’’ replied Stephen. “Let’s just do what everyone else is doing!’’

4 Wednesday, August 29, 2012 A group of students were preparing an activity to determine whether certain materials will float or sink when placed in water. Before the experiment started, one student said, “If a sponge is placed in water, then the sponge will float.” This statement is a……….. F a conclusion G a fact H an observation J a prediction/hypothesis

Before the experiment started, one student said, “If a sponge is placed in water, then the sponge will float.” This statement is a……….. J a prediction/hypothesis A hypothesis is an educated guess based upon background knowledge. It is always written as an if…, then statement with no personal pronouns.

6 Thursday, August 30, 2012 A student thinks that orange juice will freeze faster than any other substance. She fills identical containers with the same amount of different liquids, then places each in the freezer. She checks them every five minutes and discovers that the orange juice is the last one to freeze and the water is the first to freeze. Which should the student do next? A Change her results to match her original hypothesis. B Repeat her investigation to see if her results are the same. C Conclude that investigations can only be performed on water. D Tell her friends that investigations at school work better than at home.

She fills identical containers with the same amount of different liquids, then places each in the freezer. She checks them every five minutes and discovers that the orange juice is the last one to freeze and the water is the first to freeze. Which should the student do next? B Repeat her investigation to see if her results are the same. The more trials that are done, the better the data collected. Eliminates human error.

A be made of a different material The variable being changed is the manipulated variable. A

14 Thursday, September 6, 2012 A student set up an experiment to test how much bean plants will grow in soil with salt in it. The student grew 50 plants in one group and 50 plants in the other group. The only thing that can be different in the two groups is the amount of — F soil in each plant pot G water given to each plant H salt in the soil in each plant pot J fertilizer given to each plant

The only thing that can be different in the two groups is the amount of — H salt in the soil in each plant pot What would need to be controlled in this experiment? List at least four different controls.
