Identifying controls and Variables

Smithers thinks that a special juice will increase the productivity of workers. He creates two groups of 50 workers each and assigns each group the same task (in this case, they're supposed to staple a set of papers). Group A is given the special Juice. After an hour, Smithers counts how many stacks of papers each group has made. Group A made 1,587 stacks, Group B made 2,113 stacks.

Identify the:

Control Group

Independant Variable

Dependant Varriable

What Should Smithers' conclusion be?

How could this experiment be improved?


I will be happy to critique your thinking on this.

  9. the CONTROL is the normal situation that you compare your experiment to.

    The INDEPENDENT VARIABLE is something in the experiment that you control and change to see what kind of changes from the control can be observed

    the DEPENDENT VARIABLE is the variable that you measure in order to prove or disprove your hypothesis

  22. The control group is the normal situation that you compare your experiment to.

    The independent variable is something in the experiment that you control and change to see what kind of changes from the control can be observed.

    The dependent variable is the variable that you measure in order to prove or disprove your hypothesis.

    Answers are:
    1) Control group- Group B
    2) Independent variable- Special juice
    3) Dependent variable- Group B
    4) Conclusion- The juice made difference.
    5) How be improved- By waiting longer.

  23. Identify the Controls and Variables
    Smithers thinks that a special juice will increase the productivity of workers. He creates two groups of 50 workers each and assigns each group the same task (in this case, they're supposed to staple a set of papers). Group A is given the special juice to drink while they work. Group B is not given the special juice. After an hour, Smithers counts how many stacks of papers each group has made. Group A made 1,587 stacks, Group B made 2,113 stacks.
