CG (if any) _____________________________________________________________
Different types of rose bushes are grown in a greenhouse for two months. At the end of the experiment, the number of flowers found on each type of rose bush is counted and recorded.
Students will determine the independent variable (IV), dependent variable (DV), standardizing (aka controlled) variable(s) (SV) and control group (CG) for different experiment scenarios.
The numer of correct answer will determine the students' grasp of the concept.
