It is important to decide how you are going to measure the change. HYPOTHESIS • Based on the research you have done, you will be writing an answer or solution – your best educated guess – to your question. Make sure you write down your hypothesis before you begin your experiment. MATERIALS • Type a detailed list of the items you needed to complete your experiments. Be specific about the amounts used. PROCEDURE • List all of the steps used in completing your experiment. • Remember to number your steps. • Add photos of your experiments. DATA/OBSERVATIONS • It is easier to understand the data if it is put into a table or graph. Create a graph in Microsoft Excel and import it here. • Make sure all data is clearly labeled. CONCLUSION • Type a brief summary here of what you discovered based on the results of your experiments. You need to indicate whether or not the data supports the hypothesis and explain why or why not. WORKS CITED • Be sure to include print and electronic sources and put them in alphabetical order.
