DECONSTRUCT AN EXPERIMENT BUNDLE

Students learn the basic structure of a controlled experiment by analyzing experiments done by their peers - fellow teens!

Objectives of all Deconstructing an Experiment Instructional Worksheets:

1. Identify independent and dependent variables

2. Describe the control group and experimental group

3. Recognize variables that must be held constant in a controlled experiment

4. Pinpoint the number of trials completed and discuss trial size and validity of results

5. Construct experimental questions and formal hypotheses

6. Analyze methods

7. Discuss what new information we can and cannot be gleaned from the results

GRAPHING WITH CONTENT

I have created a set of 5 mini-lessons/instructional worksheets that scaffold the skills of graphing and data analysis while building my students’ scientific background knowledge. Students graph real-world data.

Skills and content you and your students will enjoy:

1. Leveled scaffolding in making bar and line graphs.

2. Data analysis that requires using data as evidence to support conclusions.

3. Mathematical analysis including calculating averages, speed and percentages.

4. Experimental design analysis: form research questions and determine variables.

5. Graphing and analysis of data based on actual scientific studies on bird ecology and behavior.

Lesson one and two are designed to teach basic graphing and initiate thinking about experimental design and the meaning behind data.

Lessons 3 and 4 provide additional practice with reduced scaffolding so skills learned in the first two lessons can be applied by the student.

Lesson 5 has the least scaffolding in graphing and can be used as a formative or summative assessment.

Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
Assess the extent to which the reasoning and evidence in a text support the author’s claim or a recommendation for solving a scientific or technical problem.
Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words.
Analyze the author’s purpose in providing an explanation, describing a procedure, or discussing an experiment in a text, defining the question the author seeks to address.
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9–10 texts and topics.
