The Scientific Procedure - Mini Lecture Series
In this mini-lecture series you will go through the scientific procedure and extract your own data from a wild bird population in Australia. You will then analyse and write a scientific report.
Mini-Lecture 1 - The Scientific Procedure
In this first mini-lecture on the scientific procedure Dr Martin Hughes gives an overview of the scientific methodology and introduces the first two steps - Question & Research.
Mini-Lecture 2 - Hypothesis Testing
In the second mini-lecture on the scientific we give an overview of hypothesis testing.
Mini-Lecture 3 - Experimental Design
In the third mini-lecture we discuss different forms of experimental design.
Mini-Lecture 4 - Data Extraction
In the fourth mini-lecture we explain how you can extract data from the virtual hides.
Mini-Lecture 5 - Data Analysis
In the fifth mini-lecture we discuss some different forms of descriptive statistics.
Mini-Lecture 6 - Bird Data Analysis
In the sixth mini-lecture we show you how to analyse your own data from the virtual hides
Mini-Lecture 7 - Data Analysis (ANOVA)
In the seventh mini-lecture we will reject or fail to reject our null hypothesis by using an analysis of variance (ANOVA)
