Decide variables to be changed and measured in fair tests, and observe measure and record data with accuracy using digital technologies as appropriate

Elaborations

  • using familiar units such as grams, seconds and metres and developing the use of standard multipliers such as kilometres and millimetres (Skills: Numeracy)
  • using the idea of an independent variable (note: this terminology does not need to be used at this stage) as something that is being investigated by changing it and measuring the effect of this change (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • using digital technologies to make accurate measurements and to record data (Skills: Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability)
