Student-designed Experiments: Part 4 Drawing Evidence-based Conclusions
October 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$45.00
(Sa Oct 24, 11am-12:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time)
This workshop will focus on the content and demands of the conclusion section of a lab report, with applications to data-based questions and internal assessments for IB students, and free response questions for AP students. The conclusions drawn from experimental data must be limited to the scope of the experiment, but it is also important for students to be able to understand how their individual work is related to the broader world. This workshop will employ an activity teachers can use to help their students identify the implications of their conclusions and connect the work they have done to topics that may be relevant. This workshop builds on the process taught in Parts 1, 2, and 3 of the Student-designed Experiments series, but it is not necessary to have taken the previous sessions to join and benefit from this workshop.
This 1.5-hour workshop is open to science and math teachers of all grade levels. We will focus on employing the Next Generating Science Standards (NGSS) instructional practices for teaching math-infused science.
