Scientific Method Notes

Attached is the powerpoint slide we reviewed concerning methods. This will help you study for your Quiz. I HIGHLY recommend you know the difference between independent and dependent variables. Also, the difference between qualitative (quality, descriptive, words are used, not measurable) and quantitative (quantity, numbers, measurable).
 
Vocabulary should be in your notes which we took in class. Here were the following words- Polarity, Capillary Action, Hydrogen Bonding, Ionic Bond, Surface tension, Adhesion, Cohesion, Covalent Bond, Density, 1.00 g/mL (what does this mean?)
