Contains a PowerPoint presentation covering basic experimentation. I use this for my Research Methods Unit in AP Psychology class.
The PowerPoint is HIGHLY animated and is guaranteed to capture student attention. Each slide has rich, moving media. Additionally, a guided note sheet is included in the zip file to help students follow along with the presentation.
Topics covered include:
the scientific method (theory, hypothesis, research study)
purpose behind experiments (prove causation, variable affect)
experimental design breakdown (independent variable, dependent variable, confounding variables, experimental group, control group)
experimental ethic guidelines
In addition, the PowerPoint contains several sample problems that asks students to correctly label terminology for given experiment scenarios.
