17 Chapter 1 Section 2, Using a Scientific Approach 4. Drawing Conclusions Based on your data, does it support your hypothesis. If not, a new experiment must then be designed to test the revised or new hypothesis.5. Developing a Theory It is a well-tested explanation for a set of observations or experimental results. (Scientific Theory)

What are the two groups in an experiment?Controlled group an experiment in which only one variable is deliberately changed.Standard, uncontrolled, basic group only by chance something will happen.5. What are the three variables in an experiment?Manipulated variable the variable that causes a change in another.Responding variable the variable that changes in response to manipulated variable.Controlled variable the variable that is not changed
19 Chapter 1 Section 2, Using a Scientific Approach 6. Mr. Roznowski will give an example.
20 Chapter 1 Section 2, Using a Scientific Approach B. Scientific lawsWhat is a scientific law?It is a statement that summarizes a pattern found in nature. It describes an observed pattern in nature without attempting to explain it.Remember a theory never ever becomes a law!
21 Chapter 1 Section 2, Using a Scientific Approach C. Scientific Models 1. What is a model? It representation of an object or event. 2. What do scientific models do for us? They make it easier to understand things that might be too difficult to observe directly.
22 Chapter 1 Section 2, Using a Scientific Approach 3. What are the types of scientific models?Physical models represent objectsMental models represent ideas
23 Chapter 1 Section 2, Using a Scientific Approach D. Working safely in ScienceBefore you start any activity, read all the steps.Make sure that you understand the entire procedure, especially any safety precautions that must be followed.The single most important rule for your safety is simple: Always follow your teacher’s instructions and the textbook directions exactly.If you are in doubt about any step in an activity, always ask your teacher for an explanation.

25 Chapter 1 Section 3 Measurement A. Using Scientific Notation1. What is Scientific notation?It is a way of expressing a value as the product of a number between 1 and 10 and a power of 10.Scientific notation makes very large or very small numbers easier to work with.Practice on the worksheet
26 Chapter 1 Section 3 Measurement 2. When multiplying numbers written in scientific notation, you multiply the numbers that appear before the multiplication signs and add the exponents. (without scientific calculators)3. When dividing numbers written in scientific notation, you divide the numbers that appear before the exponential terms and subtract the exponents. (without scientific calculators)Page 15, Math SkillsPage 15 Math PracticePractice on Worksheet
27 Chapter 1 Section 3 Measurement 4. When adding numbers written in scientific notation, the exponents must first be the same,. (without scientific calculators)5. When subtracting numbers written in scientific notation, the exponents must first be the same,. (without scientific calculators)Practice on Worksheet

41 Chapter 1 Section 4 Presenting Scientific Data Organizing DataStatement Scientists accumulate vast amounts of data by observing events and making measurements.Scientists can organize their data by using data tables and graphs.
42 Chapter 1 Section 4 Presenting Scientific Data What are data tables?It is the simplest way to organize data.The table relates two variables.Manipulated variableResponding variableLook at Figure 20 on Page 22
43 Chapter 1 Section 4 Presenting Scientific Data 2. What is a graph? A diagram showing the relation between variable quantities, typically of two variables, each measured along one of a pair of axes at right angles. The manipulated variable is generally plotted on the horizontal axis, or x-axis. The responding variable is plotted on the vertical axis, or y-axis, of the graph. The slope of this line is the ratio of a vertical change to the corresponding horizontal change. The formula for the slope of a line is Rise/Run.
44 Chapter 1 Section 4 Presenting Scientific Data 3. What are the types of proportions in a graph? Direct proportion It is a relationship in which the ratio of two variables is constant. Look at figure 21 on page 23 Inverse proportion It is a relationship in which the product of two variables in a constant. Look at figure 22 on page 23
45 Chapter 1 Section 4 Presenting Scientific Data 4. What are the different types of graphs? Line graph Bar Graph Circle Graph
46 Chapter 1 Section 4 Presenting Scientific Data B. Communicating Data A crucial part of any scientific investigation is reporting the results. Scientists can communicate results by writing in scientific journals or speaking at conferences. Different scientists may interpret the same data differently. Peer review encourages comments, suggestions, questions, and criticism from other scientists.
