Problem Statement What is the problem you are testing?
Although called a statement, it should be in the form of a question. Example: “What is the affect of water temperature on solubility of sugar.”

Background Information
In order for your hypothesis to be an “educated guess”, you need to have some background information about the topic. This section is where you put background information the reader will need to know in order to understand your project. For example, if the lab is about solubility and water temperature, the reader needs to know what solubility is and how temperature might affect it.

Hypothesis This is where you put your hypothesis.

Experimental Design Materials
List the materials you will need for your lab. Procedures List the procedures to be followed

Variables Test Variable: What variable are you testing? What are you changing? Example: Water temperature Outcome Variable: What do you expect to change as a result? What data are you collecting? Example: Amount of sugar dissolved Constants: What variables are being held constant so they do not affect the outcome of the experiment? Example: Amount of water, type of water, size of glass

Data:

Data Analysis (Graph)

Conclusion Your conclusion should follow the claim-evidence-reasoning format. That is as follows: Claim: Restate your hypothesis. Evidence: Identify the data that supports the claim. Point to specific data trends shown in your data table and graph. Reasoning: Explain how the data supports (or doesn’t support) your hypothesis. Again, refer to specific data trends shown and explain what they mean. Possible Errors: What possible errors affected the outcome of your investigation. This is especially important if your results do not support your hypothesis.

Application Explain how the knowledge obtained by your experiment could be applied in real life. What is a real life connection that would make somebody interested in your research?
