Conclusion Using the trends and/or data to summarize how your results support or contradict your original hypothesis
Inference A conclusion based on data collected
Observation Information obtained through the five senses
Scientific Method systematic approach used to answer a question or study a situation as well as verify the work of other scientists
Valid Experiment An experiment with one independent variable, one dependent variable, all other variables held constant, and multiple trials completed
Precision the reproducibility or repeatability of measurements; given multiple trials your data consistent
Accuracy how close measured data or calculated quantity is to the actual value (standard/ correct answer)
Qualitative Data deals with descriptions; data can be observed but not measured (e.g. colors, textures, smells, tastes, appearance, etc)
