#### Storyboard Text

• Hypothesis:﻿
• What is it?﻿
• Does radiation effect the number of beans that can grow?
• I have a question.﻿
• Hypothesis:﻿
• I don't know. Let's find out. But first, we need to make an educated guess: a hypothesis.﻿
• If the number of grown beans is effected by radiation, then it's reasonable to not put the beans in radiation, because it effects how much the beans can grow.﻿
• Okay, well I think that the radiation will affect the bean's growth rate. So we can say it like this.﻿
• ﻿Independent and dependent variables:
• Good. Now we need to think of the independent and dependent variables.﻿
• Okay. So the independent variable must be the radiation and the dependent must be the number of grown beans because that's what the radiation is effecting.﻿
• IV: Radiation (seconds) DV: Grown beans (#of beans)﻿
• Constants and control group:﻿
• Right. Now, constants and the control group.﻿
• The constants are: same amount of sun, same amount of time left to grow, same amount of water, same constant temperature.
• The control is the group of beans that receive no radiation.﻿
• Okay. Well our data showed us that... 1. Beans with no radiation= 88 grown beans 2. Beans with about 3 seconds of radiation= 54 grown beans 3. Beans with six seconds of radiation= 26 grown beans.
• ﻿If there where a data table, it would show that the 88 bean column is the biggest, the 26 beans the shortest, and the 54 beans in the middle.
• Now the last thing we need is the data table and chart.﻿
• ﻿Data:
• So, our hypothesis was correct: radiation does effect the ﻿number of beans that grow. No radiation= lots of beans. Six seconds of radiation= 26 beans, less beans. So, basically, DO NOT out beans in radiation. We solved our hypothesis.
• The only thing left is the conclusion:
