Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What are the steps to the Scietific Method?

    • A.

      Question, Research, Hypotheses, Experiment, Data Collection, Conclusion

    • B.

      Conclusion, Data Collection, Experiment, Research, Hypotheses ,Question,

    • C.

      Conclusion, Research, Data Collection, Hypotheses ,Question, Experiment

    Correct Answer
    A. Question, Research, Hypotheses, Experiment, Data Collection, Conclusion
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Question, Research, Hypotheses, Experiment, Data Collection, Conclusion. In the scientific method, the first step is to ask a question or identify a problem. Then, research is conducted to gather information and background knowledge on the topic. Hypotheses are formulated as possible explanations or predictions for the question. Next, an experiment is designed and conducted to test the hypotheses. Data is collected during the experiment to analyze and draw conclusions. Finally, a conclusion is made based on the analysis of the data, which either supports or rejects the hypotheses.

  • 2. 

    The controls of an experiment...

    • A.

      Is the part of the experiment that stays the same so you can compare changes.

    • B.

      Is the part of the experiment that will change.

    • C.

      Is the part of the experiment that makes everything work.

    Correct Answer
    A. Is the part of the experiment that stays the same so you can compare changes.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is the part of the experiment that stays the same so you can compare changes." This answer accurately describes the purpose and function of controls in an experiment. Controls are used to provide a baseline or reference point for comparison, as they remain constant throughout the experiment while other variables are manipulated or changed. By keeping the control unchanged, any observed changes or effects can be attributed to the manipulated variables, allowing for a more accurate assessment of their impact on the experiment.

  • 3. 

    Suzy wanted to know if thicker candles burn longer than thinner candles. Her hypothesis was that if she used a thick candle that it would burn for the longest amount of time. She got ten candles that were all the same brand, height, smell, and color. The only difference in the candles was they were all a different size, She lit them at the same time and recorded how long it took for each candle to burn out. What was her independent variable?

    • A.

      Thickness of the candle

    • B.

      Length of time the candle burned

    • C.

      Color of the candle

    Correct Answer
    A. Thickness of the candle
    Explanation
    The independent variable in this experiment is the thickness of the candle. Suzy wanted to test if thicker candles burn longer than thinner candles, so she manipulated the thickness of the candles to see if it had an effect on the length of time they burned. The other variables (length of time the candle burned and color of the candle) were kept constant throughout the experiment.

    Is it important to follow the scientific method steps in order?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    It is important to follow the scientific method steps in order because they provide a systematic approach to conducting scientific research. Following the steps in order ensures that the research is conducted in a logical and organized manner, allowing for accurate and reliable results. The steps of the scientific method include making observations, formulating a hypothesis, conducting experiments, analyzing data, and drawing conclusions. Skipping or rearranging these steps can lead to biased or invalid results, undermining the integrity of the research. Therefore, it is crucial to follow the scientific method steps in order to maintain the rigor and validity of scientific investigations.
