Bellringer: Scientific Method Review


FISH EGGS: A scientist knows that the percent of fish eggs that hatch is affected by the temperature of the water in an aquarium.
She is attempting to identify which water temperature will cause the highest percentage of fish eggs to hatch. The scientist sets up 5
aquariums at the following temperatures: 10C, 20C, 30C, 40C, and 50C. She adds 50 fish eggs to each aquarium and records the
number of eggs that hatch in each aquarium.

GAS MILEAGE: A car magazine is trying to write an article that rates the top 5 most fuel efficient SUVs (the SUVs that can drive the
most miles for each gallon of gasoline). They make sure each model of SUV has exactly 10 gallons of gasoline in its fuel tank and
reset the odometer (instrument that measures the distance a vehicle has traveled) to zero. The SUVs are then driven until they run out
of gasoline. The distance on the odometer is recorded.
