Explain the role of data analysis in the scientific method.
Data analysis is an important step in the scientific method because it requires the experimenter to determine the relationship between the variables in the experiment. This can occur in several ways. Graphing data allows the experimenter to not only visually see a trend between the variables considered, it also allows the experimenter to determine a mathematical relationship between those variables by calculating the slope of the best fit line or apply other statistical analysis. How does that sound to you?
