Quiz Day: Safety & Experimental Design

QUICK VIEW

  • HW: All spreadsheet assignments are due TODAY through Google Classroom.

  • DN: Fill in bubble sheet for today’s quiz.

LESSON OUTLINE

5min Students complete the do now by bubbling in their ID numbers onto the answer sheet.

10min As a class, students identify the variables, state the hypothesis, and determine the question from Table 2 and the scenario on the back of Science Experiments 101: Working Backwards.

5min Overview procedures for quiz. (Versions, instruction clarifications, tips, etc.)

10min Students complete the Safety Quiz.

10min<  Students complete the Experimental Design Quiz.

5min Collect materials. Clean up. Wrap up.

AIM: Assess familiarity with safety protocol and ability to identify the variables, state the hypothesis, and determine the question answered for a given experiment.

Experiments 101: Scenarios

QUICK VIEW

  • HW: [1] Science Experiments 101- Working Backwards. (Note: You don’t have to fill in the data tables. Use your notes.) [2] All spreadsheet assignments through Google Classroom are due Tomorrow.

  • CW: Science Experiments 101- Scenarios 1 & 2

  • DN: Take your assigned Chromebook and log into your account. Create a chart plotting Running Distance vs Average Jump Distance (from Monday) in Google Sheets and add a trendline. Turn in via Google Classroom.

  • Note: Quiz on Tomorrow on Experimental Design & Safety. Make sure to review the Safety Contract and Video.

LESSON OUTLINE

5min Students complete the do now by numbering the pages in their notebook and glueing in Science Experiments 101 handout onto page 5.

10min Teacher explains the procedures of the Running Distance vs Jump Distance experiment. Randomly selects students for Trial 1and run through the steps. Data is recorded in the table on the handout.

10min Complete Trials 3-4. Students are randomly selected and should only participate in one trial.

15min Students complete the notes on the handout.

5min  Clean up. Wrap up.

AIM: Complete an experiment and identify the variables, state the hypothesis, and determine the question the experiment answers.
