Methods are the way scientists gathers and analyzes data. 12. When are assumptions made? Assumptions are sometimes made when measuring, because it is impossible to measure everything. 13. When analyzing data, what is looked for? When analyzing data researchers look for patterns in the data that may not be clear through the data study alone. 14. What are the results? Results are an explanation of what happened during data collection and analysis. Scientists generally emphasize the important results, that is, the results that bear directly on the hypothesis, idea, or question under consideration. 15. What advantage does a graph have in the results section? A detailed/ accurate graph can explain the results of the experiment more concise and clearly that written explanations. 16. What goal does a good scientist have when presenting their conclusions and implications? A good scientist strives to derive implications from their results. Good scientists are often able to take the results obtained from a specific study and make a convincing argument applying their results to a much broader problem or situation Below is the graph generated by the information submitted by students in another class. Also included in this graph is a line showing the linear relationship between height and arm span.

    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.
