Investigations

This is all about investigations.  This section explains exactly what makes a good scientific investigation. You need to know how to plan your investigation, how to carry it out and how to write it all up. There is a general page with links to pages about planning, collecting evidence (i.e. doing and repeating the experiments), analysing your results, evaluating what you have done (i.e. how you could improve the investigation), some notes about SPAG (Spelling, Grammar and Puctuation), and notes about safety and risk asssessments.

There is also a very detailed page about writing up your investigation including both the original plan, and the final account of your results, conclusion and evaluation.

Go to Investigations.

I will only accept questions and suggestions in the comment box on this page.

    Can you suggest links so I can access heavy visual content? This is for a student with learning disabilities/cognitive impaired. Thanks!

    I am sorry, but I just do not have the time to do your web searches. I have a number of Macromedia Flash applications that may be suitable for your student. Just go to the “Flash” page on this site where you will find a list of “swf” files. Open these in a new window to see them full page and keep the flash index available.
