Joe is trying to define the question and answer the question, but needs some help.
I wonder what pizza toppings are the most popular?
Joe has asked his question and now answered it, but now he needs the toppings and Bob to make sure he is doing it right.
It says the ten most popular pizza toppings in order are pepperoni, cheese, pineapple, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, onions, chicken, ham, and olives. Bob, I need help with this experiment.
Bob's helping Joe buy the ten most popular toppings and calling people to come over and answer the question.
Hey, what pizza topping do you like best?
Before asking people what pizza topping is their favorite, think of the answer to the question and answer it yourself.
Bob and Joe formed a hypothesis, and now are asking 50 people what topping they like.
What topping do you like?
You gather all the items you will need for the experiment and resources to prove you did the right things for that experiment. In this case, Joe needs 10 items and called Bob over to help him with the experiment.
After 50 votes, Joe makes his final decision. Pepperoni is the most popular pizza topping.
Pepperoni had 30 votes and took first place. Bacon had 19 votes, good for second place.
And Bacon had 1 vote, good for third.
After you gather resources and someone to watch, you now ask the question and listen to the answer people give you. Also, form a hypothesis.
Now Joe visits with the government to tell them that the most popular pizza topping is pepperoni and then writes down his findings in his science notebook.
The most popular pizza topping is pepperoni, sir!
You get the responses together and count all the votes to make sure they equal 50 or the number your counting to. After that, you check other people's experiment on the same thing and see what they got.
After you get your results, you share it with other people.
The government now knows pepperoni is the most popular pizza topping in the United States, and more company's can put it on their pizza. Joe is a hero! He writes and shares his findings, then he go's to bed. All this time he has been working without a break.
