Today in class we talked all about conclusions. The particular conclusion we wrote about was about the Paper Towel Lab. In the template Cool Teacher Dude gave us, it has the standards in what the conclusion needs to have. The conclusion that the whole class did together would be graded an A. Here are the four steps to the conclusion.
- First you respond to the hypothesis
- Next you reflect on the data.
- Third, you identify the independent variable, the dependent variable, and the constants.
- Last but not least, develop questions for further study.
When writing the conclusion, you want it to be fluent as if you are writing a paragraph. Make sure that when you are writing about the reflection part of the conclusion then make sure it has to do with the data. Not just some random facts about ponies. Another trick that Mr. Sherman showed us was that in the example he made us all right down, we said the variables for IV and DV without using those words. Another tip to remember is that try to take the data table and cut it down to 2 or 3 sentences. Also when writing the conclusion, make sure that it is not two or three sentences. To get a higher grade than that, you have a right more.
