Project Report

Task to be completed
Date, student comments, answers to questions and results of task.
Lesson 1: Introduction and discussion about scientific method.
Why do you think the scientific method is an important process?

Decide what factor can be measured to determine which is the 'best' paper airplane.

Write a question that states what your group would like to investigate.
To make sure we get a precise result and if we did not use a scientific approach the
everyone would just be throwing paper airplanes
Lesson 2: Research of different paper planes to determine which variable you will test (length of plane, width of plane, mass etc) that affects the factor you are measuring
(length of flight, height of flight, accuracy of flight).
Write three to five notes about what you have learnt from your research.


Write your hypothesis in the cell at right.
Notes:
(1) smaller wing span flies further
(2) cartridge paper works the best
(3) medium sized paper planes are most agile
(4) different types of designs fly differently
(5) a sharp point at the front will fly much better

Our hypothesis is that a long, sharp-nosed, small winged plane will fly the furthest
Lesson 3: Independent, controlled and dependent variables.
Write out your experimental procedure, adding any steps you feel are necessary.
Step1: we make 3 aiplanes using the same tipe of paper.Step2:fold them all with different size
Step3:found out wich sised wings out of small medium and large flys furthest
Lesson 4: Trials
Choose three planes and complete five trials for each plane.
Collect the data for each trial.
Complete the Google form (Result Entry Form) with your results
One member of the group should be responsible for filming a student explaining the hypothesis being tested, the actual flight trials or post-flight results.
compleated and result show smallest was best
Lesson 5: Graph your results and post your video to the wiki.

Lesson 6: Compare your results with those of other students.
