I was just about ready to call it quits until the last part. Dude you got to recommend me a way of doing that. So where do I start? Cause honestly I hate practicals. And I really want an A.
don't give up! it's easier than the spec makes it sound.
the first thing to do is probably to find the independent variable, dependent variable and then control variables.
independent variable: what you're changing in the experiment
dependent variable: what you're measuring in the experiment
control variables: what you're keeping the same throughout the experiment
often, if not always, the experiments will be investigating a relationship between the independent and dependent variable, and then drawing conclusions from that. each required practical will involve the same thing: changing the independent variable, measuring the dependent variable and seeing what the relationship can tell you.
once you know the variables of each experiment, it's easier to remember how they are measured or changed. at this stage, you should learn the equipment associated with these, and how they help towards the result.
note that sources of error can be found in the equipment itself - for example, human error from misreading it, or rounding error with a ruler.
methods may seem hard to tackle, but it's much easier when you know what the experiment is aiming to show, what's used to do so, and then how to get to that stage.
