Laboratory Experiment #1 (As adapted from Morgan and Carter 2002) Physiological Observations In this exercise, your entire class, working together, will investigate a question using the scientific method. As a class, you will propose a hypothesis and design an experiment to test it. Cardiovascular fitness can be determined by measuring a person’s heart rate before and after aerobic exercise. A person who is physically fit should have a relatively slower pulse rate after exercise than someone who is less fit. Your assignment is to investigate the effect of physical fitness on pulse rate. You will be divided into groups of 4. One member should be someone who has participated in some form of athletic training and one should be someone who has not participated for at least one year (or who has never participated). The other two members will act as personal trainers for the test subjects. Students with respiratory or circulatory disorders should not be the test subjects in this experiment. The Hypothesis Considering what you already know about cardiovascular fitness and what you will learn through your research, you will develop a hypothesis and test it. This hypothesis will be
