Transcript

  • 1. Scientific Inquiry and Process<br />
  • 2. Science: way of understanding the unknown<br />The stepping stones of scientific processes<br />Methods by which questions are answered<br />What is Scientific Inquiry?<br />
  • 3. I noticed a pen during homework<br />I dropped water on my homework<br />The ink smeared… different colors appeared<br />Observation<br />
  • 4. Are their multiple colors in black ink?<br />Why are questions important in science?<br />What if you didn’t begin with a question?<br />The Question<br />
  • 5. Questions are building blocks of inquiry<br />Without a question…process is unorganized<br />The question leads to possible solutions <br />Possible Outcomes<br />
  • 6. What are possible answers to the question?<br />Possible hypotheses:<br />There are multiple colors in ink<br />Ink only has the one color<br />The Hypothesis<br />
  • 7. How can you separate the inks?<br />The ink smeared on wet paper<br />Use a chromatography experiment to test<br />Creating a Test<br />
  • 8. Mark a paper with the ink<br />Fill a cup full with water<br />Place the inked paper in water<br />The Experimentation<br />
  • 9. The paper will absorb up the water<br />Water will pass through the ink<br />The ink smears and shows different colors<br />Results of Experimentation<br />
  • 10. What do the results say?<br />Were there multiple colors in the ink?<br />Data Analysis gives answers to the hypotheses <br />Data Analysis<br />
  • 11. The experiment showed multiple colors <br />This proves ink is not just black<br />Do findings support or disprove hypotheses?<br />Make Conclusions<br />
  • 12. Hypothesis: multiple colors in ink<br /> The results agreed with the hypothesis<br />Are there any variables that affect outcomes?<br />Was the Hypothesis True?<br />
  • 13. Hypothesis: Ink only has one color<br />The results did not agree with hypothesis<br />What would be your next step?<br />Was the Hypothesis False?<br />
  • 14. Perform the experiment again<br />Use different types of pens<br />Will they have the same results?<br />The RE-DO<br />
  • 15. Results are usually published in reports<br />Findings undergo the peer revision process<br />Revisions finalize the findings <br />Results and Reports<br />
  • 16. Test<br />Analyze/Conclusions<br />Repeat<br />Observation<br />Question<br />Hypothesis<br />Prediction<br />The Scientific Method<br />
