Develop a testable hypothesis and experimental protocol that incorporates the elements listed in your scenario. Pond algae reclaimed water, pond water Part 1 – Hypotheses List a testable hypothesis and accompanying prediction that incorporates everything from your scenario. (Hint: your hypothesis should be directional and it should be something you will measure). Part 2 – Variables What are the variables in your experiment? List the independent and dependent variables. List which group is the control and which is the experimental group. Part 3 – Data What do you think your data will look like after you collect it? Write down a sample figure that shows what type of data you plan to collect. Make sure to label the axes and include a legend to indicate the control vs. treatment groups. You can sketch this out on paper and take a photo. You can either embed the photo within your MS Word file or you can upload two files: the MS Word file and a picture Part 4 – Conclusions What are the evidence-based conclusions that could be drawn from the data you will collect? Part 5 – Your own project ideas Do you have any ideas for what you could research for your own individual project? Each person should list 1-2 ideas. You only need to write 1-2 sentences. You can pick anything that related to topics covered in this class: plants, algae, fungi (including yeast), or ecology. You can grow things (e.g. studying the effect of fertilizer on plant growth) or measure things in the field (e.g. measure insect diversity in a vineyard vs. adjacent native woodland). You do not have to commit yourself to these ideas. This is just to get ideas flowing.
