Click on the link above to print the introduction to science and the scientific method (BIOL 2406 Scientific Investigation Introduction.) Refer to this document when completing your lab assignment.

Read through the description of the scientific method. This is a separate link from the one above.

w4a1 Experiment Design.
Look around your neighborhood and think of a question you could scientifically examine.....this can be ANYTHING, for example, you could ask "what kind of grass will grow best in my yard?" , or "the laundry will get cleanest with what detergent?"...see, it can really be anything......Use your question to design an experiment to demonstrate the steps of the scientific method. You may create (make up) experimental results. Write a scientific paper to demonstrate the steps of using the scientific method. Submit it by clicking on the assignment button, then select your saved file from your computer to attach then submit. (Do not forget your name on the paper itself).

Purpose of Laboratory Investigations Hypothesis

In this lab, you will be observing the impact of mineral nitrogen fertilizer usage on maize's crop yield, which is measured in milligrams of dry mass harvested per 100 acres (1 hectare) during a 1-year period. Use the animation to help you come up with an answer to the following:

Complete a lab report using the scientific method.
Using the Scientific Method Lab

Using the M.U.S.E. link, review the background information and animation to complete your report. Use the Lab 1 worksheet for assignment instructions and data collection.

Both arable and nonarable land have been chosen as the experimental cultivation sites near the city of Melle, Germany, where the yield of maize was observed from 1990 through 1998. The climate variations have also been carefully recorded on equally sized lots of both types of land.Part 1: Using the lab animation, fill in the following data tables to help you generate your hypothesis, outcomes, and analysis:

Part 2: Write a 1-page lab report using the following scientific method sections:
Purpose
- State the purpose of the lab.
Introduction
- This is an investigation of what is currently known about the question being asked. Use background information from credible references to write a short summary about concepts in the lab. List and cite references in APA style.
Hypothesis/Predicted Outcome
- A hypothesis is an educated guess. Based on what you have learned and written about in the Introduction, state what you expect to be the results of the lab procedures.
Methods
- Summarize the procedures that you used in the lab. The Methods section should also state clearly how data (numbers) were collected during the lab; this will be reported in the Results/Outcome section.
Results/Outcome
- Provide here any results or data that were generated while doing the lab procedure.
Discussion/Analysis
- In this section, state clearly whether you obtained the expected results, and if the outcome was as expected.
- Note: You can use the lab data to help you discuss the results and what you learned.
Provide references in APA format. This includes a reference list and in-text citations for references used in the Introduction section.

Give your paper a title and number, and identify each section as specified above. Although the hypothesis will be a 1-sentence answer, the other sections will need to be paragraphs to adequately explain your experiment.
When your lab report is complete, post it in Submitted Assignment files.
