controlled scientific investigation - determine the effect of an independent variable in an experiment, when all the other variables are controlled.
data - the facts, figures, and other evidence gained through observations -information both scientific and inferences
dependent - responding variable
hypothesis - prediction
independent - manipulate variable
inference - explanation or interpretation for an observation based on prior experience of supported by observations made in an investigation.
Science - a way of learning about the natural world and the knowledge gained through that process.
scientific observation - gained by carefully identifying and describing properties using five sense or scientific tools
Conclusion - the summary of the evidence reached by experimentation
Controlled Variable - the conditions that are the same in an investigation
Dependent Variable - the factor that is observed & measured and changes because of the independent variable that were made by the scientist
Independent Variable - the factor that is changed to affect the outcome of the investigation by the scientist
Investigation - the process of testing your hypothesis under controlled conditions
Length - the measurement of how long an object is from one end to the other
Mass - the amount of matter in an object
Volume - Volume = length x width x height , the amount of space taken up by an object or liquid / amount of space that matter occupies
Weight - the measurement of the force of gravity pulling on an object
Scientific Inquiry - the diverse ways in which scientists explore problems and seek to answer questions about the natural world
Observation - involves using the senses to gather information
Scientific Method - poses questions, develops and tests hypothesis, and draws conclusions
Variable - a factor that can change in an experiment
Density - measurement of how mass is contained in a given volume Density = Mass (divide) Volume
