Types of Science Investigations
Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.
Given investigation scenarios and lab procedures, students will identify independent variables, dependent variables, constants, and control groups.
6.08 Bonus Video: Law of Sines—The Ambiguous Case
The Law of Sines can be used to solve for sides and angles of oblique triangles. However, in some cases more than one triangle may satisfy the given conditions. We refer to this as an ambiguous case.
17 OnTRACK Scientific Process Skills
This binder contains seventeen separate resources focused on the scientific processes for conducting laboratory and field investigations.

7 Chapter 8: Confidence Intervals
In this chapter, students will learn how to construct and interpret a confidence interval for a population mean and a population proportion.
5 Chapter 10: Comparing Two Groups
In this chapter, students interpret confidence intervals and the results of hypothesis tests for the difference between two means and the difference between two proportions.
5 Chapter 3: Representing Categorical Data
In this chapter, we explore the different ways to display categorical data and draw conclusions based on the representations.
