Mosquito Lab Investigation (Question, Title, Hypothesis, IV/DV, Constants, Materials, Procedures- highlight IV, DV, Constants and materials, Diagram, Data Table)

Listen to the test FIRST so you understand what to do!!!!

  1. Place computer in quiet room
  2. Turn computer to full volume
  3. Ready sound test website- see Below
  4. Ask test subject to sit facing with their back to the computer- 1 meter away
  5. Ask test subject gender and age
  6. Give headphones/earbuds to the test subject
  7. Tell subject to raise right hand when they STOP hearing a frequency- have them explain the directions back to you to make sure they understand to raise their right hand when the DO NOT hear a noise any longer.
  8. Play the link and follow the directions.  As soon as the test subject raises their hand- STOP playing the video and record the highest frequency heard.
  9. Observe test subjects reactions to sounds (qualitative/quantitative)
  10. Record results in table for the highest frequency heard (in ranges listed)
  11. Ask test subject to leave room for 3 minutes
  12. Repeat steps 3 to 11 two more times with the same test subject and average the highest frequencies.
  13. Repeat steps 3 to 12 For a someone between the ages of 4-15, 16-30, 31-45, over 45 (at least 4 people total- you can always do more!)
