How do robins catch worms?

one afternoon, you notice several robins hopping around in the garden. you see that one robin hops a distance of one or two feet and pauses for a few seconds with his head cocked and then moves another couple of feet. Occasionally, the robin will stab at the ground. You notice that eight times out of ten, he successfully obtains a worm.

A. What is the research question?

B. Based on the observation you made in the garden, state a possible hypothesis that might explain how the robin detects the worm. Try to state in the if...then... formate

C. Based on your hypothesis, how would you design an experiment to test how robins capture worms? In addition to describing your experiment using words, help me visualize your experimental design by drawing diagrams and/or pictures of how you would set up the experiment. Be sure to include in your experiment description the following; variable, control group, and experimental group.

D. how would you decide whether to reject or accept your hypothesis?

A) It is quantitative reseach question. Investigation will require data collection and analysis, and the methodology for this will vary widely.

B) H0 : null hypothesis - 8 out of 10 times a worm is caught

H1 - 8 out of 10 times a worm is not caught.

C) This is a descriptive quantitative research experiment. Variable : robin hopping Control Group: number of times robin hops Experimental Group: obtaining worm.

D) Accept the hypothesis: If the P value is less than 0.05, you reject the null hypothesis; if P is greater than or equal to 0.05, you don't reject the null hypothesis.
