When you conduct an analysis of variance, what you are doing is comparing and contrasting your original hypothesis against your actual findings. The variance is your experimental group versus your control group.

For instance, if I want to see how chocolate milk affect kids in the morning, I would need a control group *kids drinking chocolate milk regularly* versus an experimental one *kids being refrained from drinking it*

When you compare their similarities and differences, you are conducting an analysis of variance.
