The Scientific Method 2 Observation: I have observed that as a plant grows, it will grow towards a source of light instead of growing straight or away from the light source. Question: Is it the light that causes the plant to grow at an angle instead of straight up? Is it just a fluke produced by that plant? Is it the wind or maybe heat which causes this? Hypothesis: A plant will grow towards a light source as it strives to produce photosynthesis. Prediction: If different types of plants are grown where no wind or heat can influence them while being exposed to a light source and they do not grow straight but towards the light source, then wind and heat have nothing to do with it and it is the light source causing the plants to grow at an angle. Testing: Plants were grown inside of four sided, glass containers where the tops were opened to prevent any wind or heat from influencing the experiment. Different types of plants were used to rule out that it is only a certain plant type. All variables were kept the same.

    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.
