Day 6 – Experimental Design




Science 8 – Today the science 8 classes started work on experimental design.  I totally love the Smarter Science approach to inquiry and experimental design.

At some point I mention how we really don’t need a hypothesis for an experiment, what we really need is a question.  There were a couple of students that were visibly pleased when I mentioned this, I guess they were also confused as to why we have to guess an outcome when there is no benefit in doing so.
