Chemistry 101: The Scientific Method
This is a GPB Television Podcast on the Scientific Method
This PowerPoint explains the Scientific Method as a blueprint for experiment success.
pH Scale and Meter Calibration Virtual Lab
This site features a virtual lab on pH scale and meter calibration. The students create salsa ensuring the pH levels do not go over 4.6 preventing a deadly bacteria from growing.
Why do objects like wood float in water? Does it depend on size? Create a custom object to explore the effects of mass and volume on density. Can you discover the relationship? Use the scale to measure the mass of an object, then hold the object under water to measure its volume. Can you identify all the mystery objects?
Scientific Method and Writing a Scientific Paper
Student groups perform a literature review and design an experiment, following all steps of the scientific method, to answer a proposed question, analyze their "data", and write a conclusion and bibliography section. A grading sheet is included.
