During lab, the class was given an example of a possible experiment in our lab manual, and also given the option to make our own experiment. We chose to develop our own experiment. In our lab group we decided to examine the effects of various treatments on the growth of seeds. For this particular experiment, we chose Black-Eyed peas. Our hypothesis stated: We predict that the peas grown solely in water would grow the fastest out of the group. In our experiment there was five tested groups of peas. We counted ten peas out for each group. Then, we placed each grouping of peas on a paper towel. Peas grow at a rapid rate in soil temperatures above 65 degrees Fahrenheit (The Thomas Jefferson Agricultural Institute). We grew our black-eyed peas at room temperature, but not in real soil. Water was added to the first grouping of peas and then placed in a ziploc bag. This was the control group. The four other variables that we used in each separate bag were: fungus, NaCl or salt, acid, and miracle grow.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
