FC: DISCOVERIES THROUGH SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY

1: The first step in the Scientific Process is to: State the Problem | Does the shape of an ice cube affect how long it takes to melt?

2: The Second Step in the Scientific Process is: Gather Information and Resources | even though both ice shapes have the same mass, density and volume, they have different amounts of surface area, depending upon the dimensions (length, height, radius) of the shapes. By increasing the surface area, the rate of a process (such as ice melting) increases as more of the ice is exposed to the warmer atmosphere.

3: The Third Step in the Scientific Process is: Form a Hypothesis (or an educated guess) | Based on what we know about the surface area of the ice cube affecting its melting rate, we believe that a semi-circle cube will melt faster than a cube shaped ice cube.

4: The Fourth Step in the Scientific Process is: Perform Experiement and Collect Data | Observe the melting rate of two ice cubes with the same mass but a different shape and surface area Which melted faster? The one with more surface area or less surface area?

5: The Fifth Step in the Scientific Process is: Analyze Data | It is always best to perform the experiment more than once so that you have a collection of data to compare. Our Data: Trial 1 : The Semi Circle Ice melted Faster Trial 2: Results are the same as trial 1 Trial 3: Results are the same as trials 1 and 2

6: The Sixth Step in the Scientific Process is: Interpret Data and Draw Conclusions | Was your hypothesis correct? | Our results were consistant with our hypothesis: The Ice Cube with less surface area (semi-circle ice) will melt faster than ice with more surface area (cubed ice)

7: The Final Step in the Scientific Process is: Publish Results | Problem Research/Resources Hypothesis Experiment Data Results of Hypothesis

9: Performance Assessment
