Variable Data





The student must be able to:

  • describe, plan, and implement experimental investigations testing one variable;
  • ask well-defined, formulate testable hypotheses...;
  • demonstrate that repeated investigations may increase the reliability of results;
  • communicate valid conclusions in both written and verbal forms;
  • construct appropriate simple graphs, tables, maps, and charts using technology...
  • design a simple experimental investigation that tests the effect of force on an object.
