This short PPT is shared with middle school students as a means to introduce them to lab write-up and more self-directed experimental design projects. This does not cover everything you might expect in high school or college, but has worked as a great resource to provide students the necessary vocabulary to begin planning and carrying out their own investigations.
NEW! Check out the section on Levels of Data! Often we ask students to make a graph and tell them the type of graph to make. This new, expanded section provides students some background information on why certain graphs may be more appropriate than others.
Be on the lookout for more resources coming, to help you and your students navigate the world of self-directed projects and experimental design challenges.
