```									 Lab #2
Maze Lab
Problem
• What variables can change the amount of
time required to complete a maze?
Materials
• Printed Maze
Procedure
1. Obtain a printed maze. Have your classmate
time how long it takes to complete the maze.
Record this time in the control section of chart.
2. Choose a way to change the experiment, write
this under independent variable.
3. For constants, write all the factors that will stay
the same.
4. Write a hypothesis on how the independent
variable will affect the time.
5. Record the time required to complete the maze
as the dependent variable. (3 times)

Conclusion
1.   Summarize the lab activity and explain if your hypothesis was supported
2.   What is the scientific method? How was the scientific method used for
this lab?
3.   What is a control? Explain the importance of a control in this experiment.
4.   Why is it important that scientific experiments be repeated?
5.   What is the difference between a dependent and an independent
variable?
6.   What is the difference between a theory and a hypothesis?
7.   By completing the maze more than once you introduce another variable.
What is this variable? This variable likely affected the time required to
complete the maze. How would you eliminate this variable? Would
eliminating this variable solve the problem? Explain.
8.   Design an experiment to test the effects of salt water on seed
germination. What would be your control, independent variable and
dependent variable? Complete a chart similar to the data chart.
