Today in class, we began by correcting their textbook Scavenger Hunt assignment, then we revisted what variables are. In addition, we learned different terms that mean the same thing. The three variables that students will be responsible for are manipulated, responding and controlled variables. The two terms that they also learned and need to be able to interchange are independent variable=manipulated variable as well as dependent variable=responding variable.
I love to show videos by the science teacher, Mr. Edmonds on YouTube. I think that he does a great job helping use music to remember concepts. Students were also assigned homework! It is due tomorrow!
