Welcome to the fourth mentorship module! First, please print out this two page worksheet that you should fill out as you watch each video. Click here for the worksheet.
In Week 8, students learned the main concepts important to experimental design. This week (Week 10) they will review this information in another online module, as well as work on their own project proposal that they will discuss in a mentorship session (Week 11).
Students who successfully complete this module, which includes 2 videos and a two page worksheet, and the associated mentorship session will be able to:
- Define and develop a model system for their experiment
- Describe the differences between qualitative and quantitative data
- Define and identify independent, dependent, and confounding variables within an experiment
- Describe a clear plan to conduct experiments for their specific FER project
