Formulating a Statement of relationship between the manipulated variable and the hypothesis responding variable those we would expect. Hypothesis can either be true or false. Conducting experiments i. Conduct an experiment includes the compilation and interpretation of data. ii. Making a conclusion regarding the validity of the hypothesis.

Plan and report an experiment Situation : A few children are playing on a different length of swing in a playground. It is found that the time of oscillation for each swing is different. The period of the oscillation depends on the length of the Steps pendulum. Example : refer to the situation above 1 Inference When the length of the pendulum increases, the period of the oscillation increases. Investigate the relationship between length and period of a simple pendulum. Manipulated variable : the length of the pendulum. 13 Responding variable : Period Fixed variable : the mass of the pendulum and the displacement.
