Careful observation and collection of data are the foundation of any experimental science. Observations can be quantitative (measurable) or qualitative (descriptive) and should be reproducible. Interpretations are explanations or assumptions of what is observed; these are conclusions that may change as more data is collected.
Task: You will make quantitative and qualitative observations on common objects. Record your responses into a t-chart and summarize your observations.
