Conclusions & Science!

October 10th
Agenda:





Important Information:
From now on, the science office will be moved to the science blog.

Mr. Pro talked about how to do a conclusion, and then we had to write one.

Here’s an example of a completed A+ conclusion:
As the time the water was heated increased, the temperature of the water increased.  The results support the hypothesis.  Every time the time increased the temperature also increased.



Your conclusion should have at least three parts.
1) In the first part, you must correctly describe the relationship between the independent variable and dependent variable indicated by the trend in the processed data (graph).



Write “As ____IV___ increased, ___DV____ increased/decreased/stayed the same.”


Examples:
