Method:

Your method will be the process by which you prove or disprove your hypothesis.  Make sure your method of investigation will answer your question and only your question. Compile a list of all the materials you will need to conduct your investigation. Keep track of costs. At this point begin doing your experiments, keeping very accurate records of everything you do. Record failures as well as successes. Keep track of all steps you perform and all tests you make in your notebook. If you can build or improvise your materials, so much the better. Where necessary, use a control as well.
