So I'm in 7 grade and doing a science project. I have a question:
What does it mean when it says: RESEARCH?
I am required to have this on my board. Does it mean what I looked up to help me on this project?
Also, what does it mean when it says: DATA?
Do I just summarize what happened during and after the experiment?
What is the difference between the Data and the Results/ Analysis?
From a good dictionary, here are definitions for each word:
1. research = The systematic investigation into and study of materials and sources in order to establish facts and reach new conclusions. Tell where you looked.
2. data = Facts and statistics collected together for reference or analysis. Tell what you found.
3. analysis = Detailed examination of the elements or structure of something, typically as a basis for discussion or interpretation. Tell how you did the experiment and what you found.
