Download, post to your website, and complete this presentation.

Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations.
  • Plan and conduct a scientific investigation to test a hypothesis.
  • Evaluate the accuracy and reproducibility of data.
  • Distinguish between variable and controlled parameters in a test.
  • Recognize the slope of the linear graph as the constant in the relationship y=kx and apply this principle in interpreting graphs constructed from data.
  • Construct appropriate graphs from data and develop quantitative statements about the relationships between variables.
  • Apply simple mathematical relationships to determine a missing quantity in a mathematical expression, given the two remaining terms (i.e. Speed = Distance/Time).**
  • Distinguish between linear and nonlinear relationships on a graph of data.
**This topic will be taught within Units 2 and 3.
