Description
Experimental design A null hypothesis is a statement that the independent variable will have no effect on the  dependent variable.    An alternate hypothesis is a statement that the independent has a specific and predicted  effect on  the dependent variable.  Dependent variable is what is being observed and recorded, it is dependent on the  independent variables, which are the variables being tested.  Having control variables is important because it minimizes the chances of other factors  affecting the experimental results. The more controlled the experiment, the more accurate  the results and clearer the cause and effect of the independent variables on the dependent  variable.  Controlled experiments have two groups with only one group introduced with the  independent variable being tested.  If the intervals overlap, there is weak or insignificant correlation; if they do not, then  there is a strong correlation and the results are significant.  If they just touch each other  (the upper and lower intervals are the same) then
