Ch 24: Analyzing Scientific Data

About This Chapter

Watch video lessons and learn about interpreting tables, graphs and charts of scientific data. Also look at experiment design. Take the quizzes that follow each lesson to gauge your understanding of these important aspects related to the analysis of scientific data.

Analyzing Scientific Data

Scientific data is organized in many ways. You'll often have to use charts, graphs and tables to understand the scientific data presented to you. In this chapter, you'll learn tips for how to interpret data presented in a variety of ways. Lessons will cover using tables, graphs and charts. You'll get to go over a variety of different types of data so that you are prepared to interpret data of any type in any form. We will also present a lesson that covers the design of scientific experiments. Some of the things you'll learn in this chapter include:

  • Interpreting tables of breathing rates
  • Interpreting graphs and charts of enzymes and the fossil record
  • Using graphs to figure problems with cell division
  • Reading a graph of rainfall amounts
  • Understanding the Avery/Griffith experiment

Interpreting Tables of Scientific Data: Practice Problems Practice interpreting tables of scientific data, such as problems with dialysis tubing and breathing rates.
Interpreting Graphs and Charts of Scientific Data: Practice Problems Explore practice graphs and charts illustrating things such as enzymes and the fossil record.
Using Scientific Concepts to Synthesize Graphs Examine graphs with problems concerning cell division and ecological niches.
Science and Graphs: Interpreting Graphs through Practice Problems Analyze graphs depicting problems with rainfall and hormones.
Design a Scientific Experiment: Example of Avery and Griffith's Experiment Take a walk-through of the Avery/Griffith Experiment and learn why they designed the experiment the way they did.
