The Objectives of this lab are:
· revise a hypothesisPart 2
· accurately gather and record data relevant to the hypothesis
· analyze the data graphically
· develop an explanation for your results
Why do you think the mass of a penny varies the way it did in your previous investigation? Write down your hypothesis. Pass in a copy of this hypothesis.What to Pass In:
Develop, record, and carrry out a procedure to check your hypothesis. What is it about pennies that could account for your results? How can you account for your results? Remember to include your data!
Write a one-page report that tells what you did and what you found out, in order. Be as detailed as possible. Include a data table and anything else that helped you decide. The last part should be a question or hypothesis to lead someone to a more detailed explanation of how pennies change with age.
HINT: the score sheet lists what pieces are expected, in the order they are expected! Mostly this is an assignment about the Scientific Method, and developing good experimental habits. Your report should be very clear and focused. You may wish to read the following documents: How to Collect Data, How To Make A Graph, and How to Write A Lab Report.
