Other investigations may involve not just more complex variables but more than one independent and dependent variable. For example, in an investigation to see how far vehicles of different weights travel down a ramp, the independent variable is the type of vehicle and the dependent variable is the distance travelled. If, however, the investigation is changed slightly and the weight of each vehicle and the height of the ramp are considered to see how they make a difference to the distance travelled, then there are two independent variables, vehicle weight and ramp height.

We seem to be on a treadmill of teaching and learning; we keep running in order to ensure content coverage, while understanding, resulting from quality exploration and investigation, gets left behind and there is little time left for the development of scientific skills. We need to focus on the reality that quality learning is more important than the amount of content covered. Young children are very good observers (Johnston, 2001), especially while interacting, although they can get distracted easily and may need to be refocused (Keogh and Naylor, 2003).
