Experiment Title: coin throws. Underhand or overhand?
What was the purpose of your experiment? Provide a brief description of what you were hoping to learn, discover, or study.: I found this peruvian game called sapo. You have to throw a coin into the toad’s mouth from two steps back. I was wondering if it would be better to throw the coins underhand or overhand.
What was your hypothesis?: It would be easier to get them in overhand because you would be higher to throw it in.
What materials did you use in your experiment? List them all.: Grandma (1)
Sapo game (1)
Coins (10)
What procedure was followed? Provide a brief description of the steps you followed during your experiment.: I asked the grandma to throw the coins underhand and try to get them in the toad’s mouth. I recorded the results. Then, I asked the grandma to do the same thing, but overhand.
What were the results of your experiment?: They were the exact same!
What is your conclusion after conducting the experiment? Was your hypothesis correct or incorrect?: My hypothesis was incorrect about it being easier overhand, they both were three out of ten.
Spend a few minutes learning about the scientific principles involved in your experiment. Write 3-4 sentences about what you learned and how it relates to your experiment.: They both have good things about them. You get to be higher up if you do it overhand, which helps. When you do it underhand, it’s more accurate.
