Today in class we had a class discussion and went through the ten variable stations that students completed in groups on Thursday. Most students did an excellent job sorting out the manipulated variable, responding variable and even came up with multiple control variables.
We continued with our Science Process Skills and today we covered observations (both qualitative and quantitative) and inference. We practiced with a few examples together as a class and the students were then asked to complete a short worksheet on Observations versus Inferences. Anyone who did not complete the sheet in class is expected to have it completed for homework. The worksheet has been attached below for anyone who needs it. We will be going through it together as a class tomorrow.
