Which describes the dependent variable in an experiment
A dependent variable is a measurement of an experiment. A
dependent variable relies on other variables in order for the
measurement to have a result.
What kind of diagram shows the flow of energy among different trophic levels
Why are there many separate ecosystems in a rain forest
Different conditions support different organisms.
Which organisms are secondary consumers in this food web
Which factor is the independent variable in this experiment
Concentration of sugar in the water
What is a primary consumer gaining energy
A carterpillar eating a plant is an example of a primary
consumer gaining energy.
Which diagram can be used to show the population of producers primary consumers and secondary consumers in a system
How does background research helps in the design of an experiment
Background research helps in the design of an experiment because
it provides information that is already known about the
Which describes a reason for making a prediction when doing a controlled experiment
To determine what sort of data table will be most useful
Which of the following describes a reason for making a prediction when doing a controlled experiment

The prediction is useful because it explains what observations
will be made if a hypothesis is true
