VII. CONCLUSION/DISCUSSION/QUE STIONS: This is where you explain your results and describe what you think your data means or proves. Use your data and observations to make inferences.
BUBBLE TIME Patrick loves bubble gum and would like to be able to blow bigger bubbles than anyone else in Bikini Bottom. To prepare for the Bikini Bottom Big Bubble Contest, he bought three different brands of bubble gum and needs your help to find the brand that creates the biggest bubble. Write an experiment to test the bubble power of the bubble gum brands and help Patrick win the contest. Design your own experiment

Writing about variables The not so good! Some you have control over some you dont. They have different reasons and a lot more ways to explain them. You should only have one in an experiment.
Writing about variables The much betters!
You and friends are having a debate about how chewing different brands of bubble gum affects the diameter of the bubble blown. You need to design an experiment using the steps of the scientific method (problem statement, hypothesis, materials experiment/procedure, observations, and conclusion). In the experiment section, make certain that your procedure is numbered in steps and you include the materials list. Design your own experiment Example 1
Lab Write-Up Format I.TITLE: Bubble Time II. PURPOSE: Do different brands of gum affect the diameter of a bubble that has been blown? III.HYPOTHESIS: If you chew the piece of gum that weighs the most, then the diameter of the bubbles you blow will be larger. IV. MATERIALS: gum ARuler gum B Pencil gum COne participant to chew gum Example 1
1. Tear off a piece of gum A (Bubble Yum), Orbit gum (B), and Big Red (C) so that each piece is the same size. Repeat this until you have 3 pieces of each brand of gum. 2. Make a data table to hold the data collected during the experiment. It should have four rows and five columns. Label the first row with Trial 1, Trial 2, and Trial 3 in the second to fourth columns and Average Diameter in the fifth column. In the first column, label rows 2 through 4 with the brand names of the bubble gum. 3. Have the participant chew the first piece of the Bubble Yum for one minute and then blow a bubble with the gum. Measure the diameter of the bubble before it pops with the ruler and record this number in the Trial 1 column for Bubble Yum. 4. Have the participant chew the second piece of Bubble Yum for one minute and then blow a bubble with the gum. Measure the diameter of the bubble before it pops with the ruler and record this number in the Trial 2 column for Bubble Yum. 5. Have the participant chew the third piece of Bubble Yum for one minute and then blow a bubble with the gum. Measure the diameter of the bubble before it pops with the ruler and record this number in the Trial 3 column for Bubble Yum. 6. Average the diameters for trials 1 through 3 and record this number in the Average Diameter column for Bubble Yum. 7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for Orbit gum and Big Red gum. V. PROCEDURE Example 1
Experiment Group: participant chewing the gum Independent Variable: the brands of gum Dependent Variable: average size of diameter of bubbles blown Observations/Data Collection: In this step you would record any observations from the experiment that you could actually see. Was the participant tiring or struggling to blow the bubbles? Were the sizes of the piece of bubble gum the same? Anything that you could actually see during the experiment would be an observation. Conclusions: In this step you would analyze and draw conclusions from your data. This is where you might make inferences about the data and how it relates back to your hypothesis. Did your results support your hypothesis or reject it? How could you improve upon this experiment? What would have made this a more credible experiment? A B C
1.The purpose of this lab is to use the Scientific Method to solve a problem. A) Observe and ask questions that lead to a problem B) Form a hypothesis C) Test the hypothesis with a controlled experiment my making observations and gathering data. D) Analyze gathered data E) Reject or Accept your hypothesis F) Form a conclusion 2. Materials 2 small pieces of wax paper 1 meter long piece of string 1 meter stick 2 different pieces of bubble gun labeled A and B 3. READ directions carefully before starting the lab. 1. Each gr
