Computational Thinking in Science and Math

Animal Behavior Experimental Lab: Part 2

In this lesson you will….

  • observe behavior of isopods and draw conclusions about their behavior

  • record data about isopod behavior

  • change variables to determine if the isopod behavior is random or deliberate

  • calculate standard deviation, standard error and chi-square tests 

  • recognize elements in experimental design including: observation, hypothesis, variable to be tested, control, data, and conclusions
