      That boy or girl you are trying to get to see you cannot tell the color of your eyes.

    Correct Answer
    D. That boy or girl you are trying to get to see you cannot tell the color of your eyes.
    Explanation
    This answer does not help explain why contact lenses should not be worn in a lab because it is unrelated to the safety concerns associated with wearing contact lenses in a lab environment. The other options provide valid reasons such as difficulty in removing lenses after a chemical splash, the lens being permeable to vapors causing irritation, and chemicals trapped under the lens causing severe damage.

    Which of the following is considered safety equipment in our classroom?

    • A.

      Eyewash station

    • B.

      First aid kit

    • C.

      Fire extinguisher

    Julie has the following objects:
    •  Two ice cubes
    • An empty glass
    • A glass of water at room temperature
    Which question could Julie answer most easily by conducting a scientific investigation?

    • A.

      What is the temperature of the water?

    • B.

      Does ice melt faster in air or in water?

    • C.

      How long does it take for water to freeze?

    • D.

      Does the mass of an ice cube change when it melts?

    Correct Answer
    B. Does ice melt faster in air or in water?
    Explanation
    Julie can most easily answer the question "Does ice melt faster in air or in water?" by conducting a scientific investigation because she has the necessary objects to conduct the experiment. She can compare the rate at which the ice cubes melt when placed in air and when placed in water. By observing and measuring the time it takes for the ice to melt in each condition, Julie can determine which environment causes the ice to melt faster.

    Use this data table to answer the question.TownAverage Temperature (C)Average Annual Rainfall (cm)Farmon1833Davis2572Jenny compared the average temperature and annual rainfall for two towns in the same state. The results are shown in the data table. From these results, Jenny concluded that hotter weather causes more rain to fall. What is another reasonable interpretation of this data?

    • A.

      Farmon is a very cold place to live.

    • B.

      Colder weather causes more rain to fall.

    • C.

      Rain causes the temperature to increase

    • D.

      Davis is the rainiest town in the entire state.

    Correct Answer
    C. Rain causes the temperature to increase
    Explanation
    Another reasonable interpretation of this data is that there is a correlation between temperature and rainfall. It is possible that higher temperatures lead to increased evaporation, resulting in more rainfall. However, it is important to note that this interpretation does not imply causation, as there may be other factors at play influencing the relationship between temperature and rainfall.

    In which activity would using the Internet be most helpful?

    • A.

      Analyzing the results of an experiment

    • B.

      Predicting the outcome of an experiment

    Correct Answer
    D. Performing research before conducting an experiment
    Explanation
    Performing research before conducting an experiment would be the activity where using the Internet would be most helpful. Researching on the Internet allows access to a vast amount of information, including scientific journals, articles, and databases, which can provide valuable insights and background knowledge on the topic of the experiment. This can help in understanding previous studies, identifying relevant methodologies, and designing a more informed and effective experimental approach.

    Explanation
    Handwriting all the information in your notes is not a way to analyze data using technology. The other options mentioned - creating a graph, creating a table, and using Microsoft Excel - all involve the use of technology to analyze and present data. Handwriting notes does not involve any technological tools or software, making it the only option that is not a way to analyze data using technology.

    D. Both b and c
    Explanation
    An engineering technician and an engineering technologist have different roles and responsibilities. A technician focuses on repairing, testing, and installing equipment or systems, while a technologist is involved in improving a product or process. Therefore, the correct answer is "Both b and c" as both options accurately describe the differences between the two roles.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. A model of something that was created to test out for future use
    Explanation
    A prototype is a preliminary version or model of something that is created to test and evaluate its design, functionality, and usability before it is fully developed or manufactured. It allows designers and developers to gather feedback, identify potential issues, and make improvements before the final product is produced. Prototypes can be physical or digital representations and are essential in the product development process to ensure that the final product meets the desired requirements and objectives.
