Product Description
Many people use the terms “accuracy” and “precision” interchangeably. However, for those students of science, these words have different meanings. This concept comparison is between: accuracy and precision in measurements.

The Concept Comparison Routine is used help compare and contrast key concepts. Specifically, students use like and unlike characteristics and categories shared and not shared by two or more concepts to better understand the overall concept.
Personally, I use the Routine to figure out what I want to say and how I want to say it. I keeps my "Sage on the Stage" time limited to what fits onto 1 page. This product includes the completed concept comparison, and the student version blanked except for titles and graphics already filled in.

These Concept Enhancement Routines have the following learning objectives and outcomes:
SWBAT identify skills scientists use to learn about the world
SWBAT identify math skills scientists use in collecting data and making measurements
SWBAT identify math tools scientists use in analyzing data

These Concept Enhancement Routines are classroom tested to help students with the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science:
SC.7.N.1.2 Differentiate replication (by others) from repetition (multiple trials).
SC.7.N.1.7 Explain that scientific knowledge is the result of a great deal of debate and confirmation within the science community.
SC.8.N.2.2 Discuss what characterizes science and its methods.
SC.912.N.1.4 Identify sources of information and assess their reliability according to the strict standards of scientific investigation.
SC.912.N.1.5 Describe and provide examples of how similar investigations conducted in many parts of the world result in the same outcome.
