2.What are independent, dependent, and constant variables in experiments, and how do you tell them apart?

3.What are test and control groups and how are they helpful in experiments?

 

Next week, they learn about Pseudoscience and will demonstrate their mastery of Basic Science Skills, and start to investigate phenomena to gain understanding of Newton’s 1st law of motion.
