Manipulated Variable- the one that is changed by the

scientist.

Controlled Variable- quantities that a scientist wants to

remain constant.

Responding Variable- the results of the experiment

Independent Variable- a variable (often denoted by

x) whose variation does not depend on that of another.

Variable that is being tested.

measured.

a independent variable is- what is what is being put down such as

ex.) for a land yacht say the independent variable is 300. That is

the independent variable because it is what the area can

be


a variable kept constant through out an experiment that stays the

same each trial
