Research A scientist researches the topic to be studied to find any preexisting knowledge that may help in the experiment
Hypothesis What is a hypothesis?
A hypothesis is always written as a statement Example: Drinking coffee 30 minutes before a test improves test scores. Now write your own example of a hypothesis
Design the experiment Study one variable at a time Include a control group Keep all other factors equal Use large number of trials Repeat
