About This Chapter
Scientific Presentations - Chapter Summary
Use the lessons in this chapter to get an introduction to scientific presentations or fill gaps in your existing knowledge. Instructors provide in-depth explanations of the processes involved in presenting scientific information visually, orally and in writing. When finished with this chapter, you should be ready to:
- Describe the steps involved in presenting data from scientific investigations
- Draw diagrams of scientific processes and concepts
- Write a report of a scientific investigation
This chapter allows you to navigate the lessons in your sequence of choice and visit them as often as needed to gain full comprehension of scientific presentations. Before, during or after reviewing the lessons, assess your understanding of their contents by taking multiple-choice quizzes. Feel free to send questions to our experts to clarify lesson topics you don't fully grasp. Before the day of your test, be sure to gauge your knowledge of this entire chapter by taking the practice exam.
1. Presenting Data from Scientific Investigations
In this lesson we'll overview the best practices for presenting data from scientific investigations. We'll talk about how to select appropriate media, cite sources, and use symbols, equations, pictures, and graphs in your presentations.
2. How to Draw Appropriate Diagrams of Scientific Processes and Concepts
Very often a scientific concept or process may be difficult to completely follow until we see a diagram. Sometimes however, making sense of them only becomes harder after seeing one! In this lesson, we'll learn to make diagrams that are more useful.
3. How to Write a Written Report of a Scientific Investigation
Many times, writing a good written report of a scientific investigation is just as important as the experiment itself. In this lesson, we'll learn why the hypothesis, procedure, and results are so important.
