About This Chapter
Below is a sample breakdown of the Scientific Data Analysis chapter into a 5-day school week. Based on the pace of your course, you may need to adapt the lesson plan to fit your needs.
|Day||Topics||Key Terms and Concepts Covered|
|Monday||Interpreting Tables of Scientific Data: Practice Problems||Problems with data tables, three main rules used to solve table problems|
|Tuesday||Interpreting Tables of Scientific Data: Practice Problems||Scanning a table, verifying a problem's concepts in order to solve it|
|Wednesday||Design a Scientific Experiment: Example of Avery and Griffith's Experiment||Experimental design processes, designing experiments that answer specific questions|
|Thursday||Design a Scientific Experiment: Example of Avery and Griffith's Experiment||Frederick Griffith's work with pneumococcus|
|Friday||Design a Scientific Experiment: Example of Avery and Griffith's Experiment||Oswald Avery's contribution to the Avery-Griffith experiment|
1. Interpreting Tables of Scientific Data: Practice Problems
Complex table problems getting you down? Multi-question, situational problems don't have to be a drag on your testing performance. Learn how to apply three simple rules as we walk through two table problems together.
2. Interpreting Graphs and Charts of Scientific Data: Practice Problems
Do charts and graphs make problem-solving difficult? Complex problems with visual representations can drain your brain during a test. In this lesson, learn three simple rules for solving problems with charts and graphs. We'll try them out as we walk through two sample problems.
3. Design a Scientific Experiment: Example of Avery and Griffith's Experiments
What are the requirements of a scientific experiment? How do scientists design their investigations? In this lesson, we'll use the work of Avery and Griffith to explore the process of experimental design.
