Forming A Hypothesis Using Cause & Effect
Mr. Conant × Ms. Chambers × Memorial Middle School × Beverly, MA
Independent Variable (Variable being tested)
Dependent Variables (Controlled variables)
What ingredients make up a testable hypothesis?
What is the difference between a prediction and a hypothesis?
When you perform a controlled experiment for a science fair project what does it mean?
This activity was designed to help you in mastering the concepts of forming a hypothesis, identifying controlled variables (dependant variable), and identifying the variable being tested in an experiment (independent variable). When completing this activity you will encounter many scenarios that can lead to a controlled experiment. Read these scenarios, create a hypothesis (using cause and effect), identify the controlled variables, and identify the variable being tested.
