Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Test your understanding of experiments in a plant research laboratory. Investigate the effects of variables on the growth of tomatoes. Examine the effect of temperature on growth. Research the answers to questions about how to achieve optimum hydroponic growth conditions.
1. Students set up controlled laboratory experiments to investigate variables affecting plant growth, and analyse the resulting data.
2. Students make a hypothesis, carry out a fair test and analyse the results to decide whether the data support their hypothesis.
3. Students understand the role of controlled experiments and repeated trials in scientific investigation.
