- by organizing and communicating data through graphical representations

Science 6.2 Demonstrate Scientific Reasoning and Logic

- by investigating ideas by asking for and actively seeking information

- by analyzing alternative scientific explanations

LS.1 Plan and Conduct Investigations

- by organizing data into tables showing repeated trials and means

- by defining variables

- by using SI (metric) units

- by establishing criteria for evaluating a prediction

- by identifying sources of experimental error

- by identifying independent variables, dependent variables and constants

- by controlling variables with repeated trials to test the hypotheses

- by constructing, interpreting and using continuous line graphs to make predictions

- by evaluating and defending interpretations from the same set of data

PS.1 Plan and Conduct Investigations

- by accurately measuring and reporting data using SI (metric) units

- by using thermometers to gather data

- by recording and interpreting data from line graphs

- by identifying independent and dependent variables, constants, controls and repeated trials

- by making valid conclusions after analyzing data

C/T8.1 Communicate Through Application Software

- by communicating through application software with spreadsheets by entering and analyzing data, and creating graphs and charts to visually represent data
