Scientific Method- Used by scientists to conduct experiments Hypothesis- The prediction scientists make before an experiment. What we think will happen. Procedures- The steps followed in and experiment. 1st- 2nd- 3rd- 4th- 5th- Constant – The things that scientists keep the same for each part in the experiment Control Group- The thing or group that is not being experimented on but is used for comparison. --------- Variable- Something that changes. Independent Variable- The part of the experiment that the scientist changes on purpose, what we test. -------------------Conclusion- What was learned from the experiment. Dependent variable- What happened in the experiment. The results, what responded to what was tested. Mass- How much matter an object has. Volume- How much space something takes up. Graduated cylinder- A tool to accurately measure volume. Meter- The metric unit of length Gram- The metric unit for mass. Hazardous- Dangerous. Flammable- Can catch fire easily. Eye wash- An area to flush chemicals from eyes. Graph- A way to present data. X axis- The horizontal axis on a graph (across) y axis- The vertical axis on a graph (up and down). Pie chart- A graph used for parts of a whole. Bar graph- A graph used to show comparisons. Range- From the largest to the smallest #. In the birthday graph the range is 10-1 = 9 Interval- The number used on the graph. In the birthday graph the interval is 2 because the y-axis is counting by two’s. Triple beam balance- The tool used to measure mass.
