Experiment Testing

Review “Some Elements of the Scientific Method” (handout: especially steps 4, 5, and 6). Make a detailed outline of how you would design a realistic experiment to test the following hypothesis: “A vegetarian diet is better than a meat-containing diet for puppies after they have been weaned (i.e. when they’re at least 12 weeks old)” Identify the dependent/outcome and the independent/controlled variables and mention all the important steps to be followed in the design of your experiment, e.g. sample size, feeding times, exercise, repetition(s).  You don’t have to invent results of the experiment or get into detailed data analysis, but give enough details that other researchers would be able to repeat your experiment exactly.
