C. Variables 

List the  Dependent and Independent
List Control variable
List a Positive and /or Negative controls

D. Create a data set  and figure 

Create a graph that clearly conveys to the reader what your experiment is about.


Give an interpretation of the possible meaning of your data. (although this isn’t conclusive since we are not doing statistics) . Does it align with your hypothesis?

G.Self-critique  and follow-up questions:
