Research Question: (The question your experiment is going to be based on, should be a “How does (independent variable) effect (dependent variable?)

_________________________________________________________________

Independent Variable: (This is the variable that you are going to change in the experiment, should have 5 different variations of this variable)
__________________________________________________________________________________

Dependent Variable: (This is the variable that you are going to measure in the experiment)
__________________________________________________________________________________

Controlled Variable: (The variables that you are going to keep the same so your experiment doesn’t become unfair, also state how you are going to control this variable in the experiment, you should have at least 3 controlled variables)

Hypothesis: (This is where you predict with scientific proof what you would think would happen in your experiment, use “I think that as you change (IV) the effect on the (DV) will be…”, include in-text citation and if a diagram helps explain, then include one or even a sketch graph)
