1 Word of the Day 10/15/14 Formal Formal is an adjective. The definition of formal is having a regular or orderly pattern or arrangement; bound. An example of how you might use formal in a sentence is: The unsatisfied customer lodged a formal complaint to the manager.

2 WARM UP List as many qualitative and quantitative observations about your neighbor’s hand as you can.. ANSWER: answers will vary 1.Wrinkled 2.Pinkish and tan color 3.5 large blue veins visible 4.5 fingers of different lengths 5.Fingernails are made of different material than the skin 6.Hair is present on back side but not on palm 7.Shakes when hold very still 8.Fingers are approximately 6 cm in length. 9.Length of hand, from wrist to longest finger, is approximately 10 cm.

3 Scientific Method Notes #2 students please open folder and hand out the scientific method notes You will fill in the blanks with the words written in red as Mrs. Groom reads the information.

4 Scientific Method

5 Steps in the Scientific Method Observation Observation Hypothesis Hypothesis Experiment Experiment Data Collection Data Collection Conclusion Conclusion Communicate Communicate

6 Observations Gathered through your senses Gathered through your senses A scientist notices something in their natural world A scientist notices something in their natural world

7 Observations An example of an observation might be noticing that many salamanders near a pond have curved, not straight, tails An example of an observation might be noticing that many salamanders near a pond have curved, not straight, tails

8 Hypothesis A suggested solution to the problem. A suggested solution to the problem. Must be testable Must be testable Usually written as If…Then… statements Usually written as If…Then… statements Predicts an outcome Predicts an outcome

9 Hypothesis An example of a hypothesis might be An example of a hypothesis might be “ If salamanders have curved tails then they are better adapted to a pollutant in the moist soil where they live.” “ If salamanders have curved tails then they are better adapted to a pollutant in the moist soil where they live.”

10 Experiment A procedure to test the hypothesis. A procedure to test the hypothesis.

11 Experiment Variable – factor in the experiment that is being tested

12 ExperimentExperiment (Big Bang Clip) Experiment A good or “valid” experiment will only have ONE variable!

13 Data Results of the experiment May be quantitative (numbers) or qualitative

14 Data Must be organized Can be organized into charts, tables, or graphs

15 Conclusion The answer to the hypothesis based on the data obtained from the experiment

16 Communicate Scientists always communicate their results. Experiments must be repeatable by other scientists.

17 Review 1)Identify a Problem 2) State Observations about the problem 3) Form a Hypothesis about the problem (if…then…) 4) Design an Experiment to test the hypothesis 5) Collect Data (qualitative and quantitative observations) 6) Form a Conclusion 7) Communicate steps and results

18 Add information to add to their glue in about the independent and dept variable cause and effect!

19

20 Cut and Glue the following papers in your notebooks: 1. scientific method notes and study guide 2.The chart of the steps of the scientific method You have 5 minutes!

21 Scientific Method Foldable Directions: You will each create a tab foldable of the steps of the scientific method Insert picture of foldable Scanned picture

22 Scientific Method Foldable Directions: #2 students please hand out 4 pieces of blank paper to each student We will create the foldable in steps together. When you have successfully folded your paper hold it up so Mrs. Groom can check that you did it right.

23 1.Use your ruler to measure 3.5 cm from the top of the paper and mark it with your pencil. 2.Fold the paper HORIZONTALLY at the mark. 3.Write 1 on this paper in pencil 3.5 cm

24 1.Use your ruler to measure 5.0 cm from the top of the paper and mark it with your pencil. 2.Fold the paper HORIZONTALLY at the mark. 3.Write 2 on this paper in pencil 5.0 cm

25 1.Use your ruler to measure 8.0 cm from the top of the paper and mark it with your pencil. 2.Fold the paper HORIZONTALLY at the mark. 3.Write 3 on this paper in pencil 8.0 cm

26 1.Use your ruler to measure 12.0 cm from the top of the paper and mark it with your pencil. 2.Fold the paper HORIZONTALLY at the mark. 3.Write 4 on this paper in pencil 12.0 cm

27 1.Insert the paper with the #2 written on it under the paper with the #1 on it. 2.Insert the paper with the #3 written on it under the #2 paper. 3.Insert the paper with the #4 written on it under the #3 paper. 4.HOLD UP YOUR FLIPBOOK SO MRS. GROOM CAN CHECK THAT IT IS FOLDED CORRECTLY. 5.STAPLE THE TOP OF THE FLIPBOOK 3 TIMES – SEE MRS. GROOM’S EXAMPLE 6.Erase the numbers on the papers

28 Write the following labels on each flap – write in pencil – you can use markers later The Scientific Method Question/Problem Observations Hypothesis Experiment/Procedure Data Analysis Conclusions Communicate

29 Each flap/step of the scientific method will include: 1. Key information and details related to that step in the scientific method. See Mrs. Groom’s example Work on your foldable flapbook until Mrs. Groom calls for clean up, then collect flapbooks in your period’s table folder in the bin.

30 #2 students please open your folder and hand out the scientific process reading 1.Read the article and answer the questions on the back of the paper 2.Hold onto your papers we will grade them and collect them at the end of class

31

32 Grading procedure 1.Put pencil away 2.Use pen to grade 3.Name of grader at bottom 4.Total out of 10 at top ex: 10/10
