Students will be able to
- define terms related to measurements used in experiments such as quantity, value, variable, constant, universal constant, independent variable, dependent variable, and (un)controlled variable,
- understand that a constant that is not a universal constant is effectively a controlled variable except that the experimenter did not actively control the variable and just measured it to ensure its constancy (or even just assumed its constancy),
- explain the purpose of experiments as tests of predictions,
- explain the usefulness of repeating or replicating experiments in identifying anomalous measurements.
