NYS Regents - Living Environment

What is a hypothesis? It serves as a basis for determining what data to collect when designing an experiment.

How do you calculate the average for 3 trials? Add up each piece of data and then divide by the number of pieces or trials (3).
Most living things depend on a proper pH level to sustain life. What are the 3 levels to ph? acid, neutral, base
What are the reasons for your experiment to be peer reviewed? pointing out possible bias, identifying illogical conclusions, analyzing experimental design
How do you add stain to a microscope slide without removing the coverslip? Add a paper towel to the opposite side of the stain and then add the stain to the edge of the coverslip

What is the order from oldest to newest in creating new traits? -gene manipulation/ engineering -natural selection -selective breeding (think breeding dogs, horses, etc.) natural selection, selective breeding, gene engineering
