Molecules Important Vocabulary Terms: Biology: The scientific study of life Emergent Property: New property that arises with a step up in the hierarchy of life, owing to the arrangement and interactions of parts as complexity increases Hypothesis: A testable explanation for a set of observations based on the available data and guided by inductive reasoning Prediction: In deductive reasoning, a forecast that follows logically from a hypothesis, typically in an, if…then statement Observation: quantitative or qualitative information made by either the senses or with help of technology/tools Data: Recorded observations Theory: An explanation that is broader in scope than a hypothesis, generates new hypotheses, and is supported by a large body of evidence Controlled Experiment: An experiment in which an experimental group is compared with a control group that varies only in the factor being tested Correlation: Mutual connection or relationship between two or more things Spurious Correlation: incorrect correlations, meaning that the two things may look like they affect one another but they do not Dependent Variable: A variable whose value is measured during an experiment or other test to see whether it is influenced by changes to another variable Independent Variable: A variable whose value is manipulated or changed during an experiment or other test to reveal possible effects on another variable Reducing Atmosphere: Oxidation is removed which reduces other gases in the atmosphere Monomer: The subunit that serves as the building block of a polymer Polymer: A long molecule consisting of several similar or identical monomers linked together by covalent bonds Macromolecule: A giant molecule formed by the joining of smaller molecules, usually by a dehydration reaction Scientific Method: Question/ Curiosity Observations Hypothesis Prediction Revise + Rethink Test (Experiment) If data is inclusive with Analysis/ Conclusion hypothesis take the evidence gained and revise the hypothesis.
