science the study of the natural world through observations and logical reasoning leads to a body of knowledge.
observing the process of using one or more of your senses to gather information.
inferring the process of making an inference an interpretation based on observations and prior knowledge.
predicting the process of forecasting what will happen in the future based on past experience or evidence
chemistry the study of the properties of matter and how matter changes
physics the study of matter,energy,motion, and forces and how they interact
scientific inquiry the ongoing process of discovery in science
hypothesis a possible explanation for a set of observations or answer to a scientific question
parameter a factor that can be measured in an experiment
manipulated variable the one variable parameter that a scientist changes during an experiment
responding variable the variable parameter that changes as a result of changes to the manipulated, or independent, variable in an experiment
controlled experiment an experiment in which only one parameter is manipulated at a time
data qualitative has no numbers or measurements
data quantitative has measurements and numbers
communicating the process of sharing ideas with others through writing and speaking
model a representation of an object or process
scientific theory a well-tested explanation for a wide range of observations or experimental results
scientific law a statement the describes what scientist expect to happen every time under a particular set of conditions
graph a picture of information from a data table; shows the relationship between variables
horizontal axis a line that runs left to right along the bottom of a graph, on which the manipulated variable is labeled
vertical axis a line that runs up and down along the side of a graph, on which the responding variable is labeled
origin the point on a line graph; where the x-axis and y-axis cross on a graph
coordinate a pair of numbers used to determine the position of a point on a graph
data point a point on a graph showing the location of a piece of data
line of best fit a smooth line that reflects the general pattern in a graph
slope the steepness of a line on a graph, equal to its vertical change divided by its horizontal change
nonlinear graph a line graph in which the data points do not fall along a straight line
linear graph a line graph in which the data points yield a straight line
data facts,figures, and other evidence gathered through observations
