Variable A factor in an experiment that changes or could be changed. Example: Wings folded or not folded on helicopter Spin of the helicopter
Independent Variable The variable that is changed on purpose. Example: Ways the wings were folded.
Dependent Variable The variable that responds to the independent variable Example: Spin of the helicopter. Clockwise or counter-clockwise
Control The standard for comparison in an experiment, the independent variable is not applied to control group. Example: Helicopter without wings folded back.
Constant A factor in an experiment that is kept the same in all trials Example: Same person drop the helicopter from the same height each trial.
Repeated Trials The number of times an experiment is repeated for each value of the independent variable. Write in your own words.
Writing A Statement of the Problem for the Experiment It should state: “The Effect of the Independent Variable on the Dependent Variable”. A good statement.
1) In the helicopter experiment, what was the independent variable The independent variable was the folding of the blades in different directions. Remember.
The Controlled Experiment Why It Is So Important To You!!!!
Variables What are Variables? Factors that can change in an experiment.
Attributes of an Experiment. What makes an experiment scientific? 1.Variable Components of an experiment that can be changed 2.Independent Variable (IV)
EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Developed by Kathy Melvin Presented by Dr.Gerard J. Putz Science answers questions with experiments.
Scientific Method Vocabulary. Scientific Method Research Question: You see something happen and you ask “why?” Hypothesis: An “if…then” statement.
Introduction to Physical Science Vocabulary Write the following words in your glossary as we discuss them in class. You’re welcome!
Controlled Experiments and Variables. Controlled Experiment a set of compared investigations in which one variable is manipulated by steps while all.
What is Science? - Ideas developed by scientists and the methods used to gain information about the idea. – A process of making observations and asking.

Scientific Method A series of steps designed to solve a problem or learn more about the world around you.
The focus of the experiment -- complete sentence -- ends with a question mark The focus of the experiment -- complete sentence -- ends with a question.
Scientific Method Use Cornell note taking to write the most important information in this presentation. Use only right page (s)
Experiments. Scientists use an experiment to search for cause and effect relationships. They design an experiment so that changes to one item cause something.
THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD “Knowledge comes from asking the right questions.”
The Scientific Method involves a series of steps that are used to investigate a natural event.
Experiments NC SCOS Obj Controlled = Good! Controlled Experiment – only ONE variable is tested (or changed by experimenter) at a time WHY? So you.
