  • Goals
    • Learn something about what makes "good" science
    • Get used to talking and contributing to class discussions
  • Task
    1. Make small groups of 2 or at most 3 people
    2. Brainstorm about what necessary things you need to do in order to perform a "good" scientific study.
    3. After about 5 minutes, pick your favorites and email or txt them to me (txt 505-750-3279)
    4. I'll collect them and then we'll argue as a group about what is most important

Brainstorming results

  • Making ALL raw data available, reproducability,publish how data was obtained including setup and settings on equipment
  • 1. Maintain impartiality and utilize logic 2. Experiments need to be reproducible 3. Using transparent and well explained processes 4. Do COOL things
  • Objective approach , id variables, verification by peers, enough accurate data, understanding previous work like it
  • Evan & Zeke: Doing unbiased research. This allows shortcomings of current models/theories to be discovered and future progress to be made.
  • 1. Enough info for easy duplication. 2. Accuracy and integrity of information. 3. Information that others can use, build on, or avoid in other experiments
  • Planning, record detailed data, have clear goals, do lots of trials, check your surroundings to make sure there is nothing giving you bad data-rhett eller
  • Detailed procedures so it can be reproduced, large data sets, good organization, reducing errors and knowledge of what the errors are, comparing the results to similar studies.
