DATA - RESULTS - APPLICATION
When you have finished conducting your investigation, you must decide how you will communicate your findings. The data is the information you gathered while experimenting. This information can be either QUANTITATIVE in nature (data that is numbers based) or QUALITATIVE (data that is based on characteristics not numbers). Many students use graphs, charts, tables, and photos to summarize what happened. Make sure all tables and graphs are clearly and neatly labeled.
Ask yourself these questions: Does it clearly and neatly show my findings? Is it complete, or did you forget something? Do you need to collect more data? Did you make any mistakes? Is there a way to make it more clear?
Describe your data results in words and display this information on the display board. In this section you simply write in words the information gathered from the graph or chart. Do not interpret the data in this section. In other words do not write what it all means.
The application is a description of WHY your project is useful in every day life. What advances can it make for society. It should tell the reader WHY your project is important and why they should care about your findings.
For example, in a project "Which battery lasts the longest" the application could be that you are showing people the best battery to buy.
