A hypothesis is a [...]able statement (it does not need to be a guess, educated or otherwise!) A hypothesis is a testable statement (it does not need to be a guess, educated or otherwise!)
A hypothesis must be a statement that can be [...]. (notice it does not have to be an educated guess) A hypothesis must be a statement that can be tested. (notice it does not have to be an educated guess)
Use the [...] to devise an experiment. Use the hypothesis to devise an experiment.
A scientific experiment is designed to [...]. A scientific experiment is designed to test a hypothesis.
Control all but [...] in a scientific experiment. Control all but one variable in a scientific experiment.
Variables that are kept constant are called [...]. Variables that are kept constant are called controls.
Conclusions are drawn only after [...]. Conclusions are drawn only after analyzing results.
Some experiments do not lead to any conclusions; they are [...]. Some experiments do not lead to any conclusions... they are inconclusive.
