EALR 2: Inquiry (INQ)
Questioning and Investigating
- Revise questions to be answered scientifically.
- Design an appropriate investigation to answer the question and carry out the study.
- Think critically and logically to make connections between prior science knowledge and evidence produced from investigations.
- Work well in collaborative teams and communicate the procedures and results of their investigations.
- Critique findings of own and others' work.
For an experiment to be valid, all (controlled) variables must be kept the same whenever possible, except for themanipulated (independent) variable being tested and the responding (dependent) variable being measured and recorded. If a variable cannot becontrolled, it must be reported and accounted for.
Plan and conduct a controlled experiment
to test a hypothesis
about a relationship
between two variables
. *c Determine which variables
should be kept the same (controlled
), which (independent
should be systematically manipulated
, and which responding (dependent) variable
is to be measured and recorded. Report any variables
they might affect results.
