Group 4 Timeline. Look at the description of the timeline as we will MODEL it, but it is from another school's G4 project last year. We will be doing our G4 on phylogenetics and will do our planning here at the school. But this is the format that we will use.
What you will be submitting upon return is this G4 Project Reflection sheet.
Bear in mind that BEFORE WE LEAVE, you will choose a topic of interest and from there, come up with some sort of research question, hypothesis, and IV/DV/Controls. Once there, you will refine each of these based on the data you collect and the instructions the professors give. I will be checking for the adjustments to your RQs as we complete each workshop.
Also bear in mind that the IA requires the use of statistics, which means that you will have TWO hypotheses. The first hypothesis is the one you determine from your research. The second hypothesis MUST BE: Is there a statistical difference between...
The way you answer the second hypothesis is through the use of statistical tests, such as the t-test, ANOVA, and/or chi-square. You should be learning about statistics in math studies.
