    Amy wants to determine if the amount of fertilizer she gives her pumpkins will affect their growth. Amy thinks that the plot with the most fertilizer will produce the biggest pumpkin. She makes six separate plots, each 10 ft by 10 ft. She puts a different amount of fertilizer in each one. In the first plot she puts no fertilizer. She plants one pumpkin seed in each plot. She adds different amounts of fertilizer. What is her IV?

      Amount of fertilizer

    • C. 

      Separate plots

    • D. 

      Type of seed planted

    Matt wants to determine if the temperature of water effects how long it will take sugar to dissolve. Matt thinks that warmer water will cause the sugar to dissolve faster. Scott uses 25ml of water at each temperature and uses a 1 ounce sugar cube for each trial. Scott decides to use 5 different temperatures, 2 below room temperature, room temperature, and 2 above room temperature. He records the time from when he places the cube in the water to when he can no longer see any sugar crystals.  What is his IV?
    • A. 

      25 mL of water

    • B. 

      1 ounce sugar cube

    • C.

    Merck Pharmaceutical Company is testing a new drug for treating depression to see if it has any side effects.  They think that if the drug is taken correctly (in the morning after breakfast), there will be no side effects. 1,000 subjects in group A were given a placebo drug (a pill with only sugar) that they were instructed to take right after eating breakfast.  1,000 subjects in group B were instructed to take the drug right after eating breakfast each morning.  A. State the initial hypothesis B. State the Independent Variable C. State the Dependent Variable D. State one control E. Challenge: How does Group A help the company ensure they are using a reliable drug?
