MCCPS Science Lab Worksheet

What is the question?

What is the hypothesis? (a statement you can test)

What is the prediction? (Based on the hypothesis, If we do this, then that will happen)

What materials were used? How much of what stuff? What equipment did you use?

How did you test this? What steps did you use? How many times (how many trials of different things)? How many different ways? What was measured? Will you test different designs in the same way, or the same design in different ways?

Observations/Inferences: List all of your data (times, lengths, speeds, weights, volume) in a table, according to the number of trials. Identify the Independent Variable, the Dependent Variable and explain why. Will your table make a graph that can show the relationship of the Dependent and Independent variables?

Conclusion: “The data supports/does not support the hypothesis that…” What do you think happened? What are the possible sources of error in your procedure? Is there another way that you could test this hypothesis? What other questions does this make you want to ask?

Does your report have a proper Name, Title and Date heading? Is your report neat and well-organized? Are the punctuation and spelling correct?
