Bio 220 week 1 assignment: scientific method matching exercise

Complete the “Scientific Method Matching Exercise Resource.”

 

GCU style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

 

You are not required to submit this assignment to Turnitin, unless otherwise directed by your instructor. If so directed, refer to the Student Success Center for directions. Only Word documents can be submitted to Turnitin.

 

In Part I, match each example from Column 2 with the correct step of the scientific method in Column 1. Explain the reasoning for your choice in Part II.

 

Part I:

 

Column 1: Scientific Method Steps

___ Observe

___ Ask a question

___ Create a hypothesis

___ Conduct an experiment

___ Collect data

___ Interpret results

___ Report results

Column 2: Examples of Tasks

a)      A scientist, based on his observation of the pond, believes that if a pond is exposed to the waste of an industrial plant, then the growth of algae will be accelerated.

b)      In her laboratory, a scientist pours a vial of waste water, collected from the industrial plant, and adds it to a dish containing pond water. A second dish (the control dish), containing the same pond water, does not receive the waste water sample.

c)      A scientist wonders if the waste water emitted from an industrial plant is accelerating the growth of algae in a pond.

d)     After five days, the scientist measures the amount of algae present in each dish.

e)      The scientist submits his findings to a scientific journal.

f)       After the data is collected, the scientist discovers that the dish containing both the pond water and waste water had more than twice the amount of algae than the control dish.

g)      A scientist observes that a pond adjacent to an industrial plant has heavier algae growth than ponds farther away.

 

Part II:

Explain why you believe the “Examples of Task” (Column 2) that you selected is an example of the corresponding “Scientific Method Steps” (Column 1).
