For this first discussion, I would like to be sure you each have a clear understanding of the scientific method, hypothesis, and theory.

For this first discussion, I would like to be sure you each have a clear understanding of the scientific method, hypothesis, and theory. Therefore, please provide a fictitious hypothesis, including independent and dependent variables, the type of testing you would do, and an outcome.

As I provide an example in my lecture, I would like you to come up with your own. It should be in your own words as well. You will be required to respond to one other colleague regarding their own examples, what are they missing, an important independent variable? A clear hypothesis? Remember you are not critiquing each other as much as you are like a colleague reviewing the work of another scientist.
