Part A: Develop a Hypothesis
- Based on your existing knowledge of earthquakes, develop a
hypothesis regarding the likely location of earthquake events.
Example: Earthquakes are most likely to occur along
the coastlines of all countries.
- In order to test your hypothesis, make a prediction of where
you expect to see substantial earthquake activity. This will
determine if your
hypothesis is correct or needs to be revised.
Example: I predict that there will be a lot of earthquake activity
along the east coast of the U.S.
