GRAPHING DATA: LINE GRAPH y-axis Dependent Variable ( What is observed and measured ) x-axis Independent Variable ( What is adjusted by the scientist ) K. BARRETTO FOR BIOL101 | LAB ACTIVITIES FROM DOWDY & YONENAKA 2018

GRAPHING DATA If you are examining your “speed” (MPH) in a car… Independent Variable “Hour” (Time) is INDEPENDENT Time goes on independently, regardless of anything else This goes on the “x-axis” Dependent Variable “Miles” (Distance) is DEPENDENT The distance you travel depends on how much time has passed by This goes on the “y-axis” K.

PROCEDURE 1. Complete graphing worksheet on Pg. 19 ( done on board as a class ) 2. Using your group’s data from ACTIVITY 3, make a line graph of height vs. distance jumped from standing position Height is independent Distance jumped is dependent 3. Using all three sets of data from ACTIVITY 3, make a second graph 4. Using first graph, draw a CONCLUSION relating your group’s experimental results to your hypothesis. Does the data from the second graph change your conclusion? K. BARRETTO FOR BIOL101 | LAB ACTIVITIES FROM DOWDY & YONENAKA 2018

    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.
