Each controlled variable mentioned should be addressed in the procedure explaining how it was maintained in the experiment.
A listing of all materials used should be included here. Specific sizes of equipment, such as 100 ml graduated cylinder or 50 ml beaker, should be stated. Solutions used and their precise concentrations should also be listed. The model and manufacturer of any complex apparatus should be clearly stated. State the uncertainty of the instruments used.
The procedure should be in numbered steps, clear and easy to follow. A peer should be easily able to complete your procedure from this section. Include specific details about how you manipulated the independent variable. Also, if not detailed in table above, include details on how to keep the controlled variables constant and how many times to repeat the procedure. This section must provide for the collection of sufficient relevant data. Relevant data means it pertains directly to the research question or the hypothesis. Explain if there...
