Transcript

  • 1. Chapter 1, Section 1 – The Nature of Science & Technology
    Thinking Like A Scientist
  • 2. Observing
    Inferring
    Predicting
    Classifying
    Making Models
    Scientists use several skills to learn about the world. These include:
  • 3. Using one or more of your senses to gather information
    Two types of observations:
    Quantitative: deals with a number or amount
    Qualitative: deals with descriptions that cannot be expressed in numbers
    OBSERVING
  • 4. Explaining or interpreting the things you observe
    This is NOT making a wild guess
    It is based on reasoning from what you already know
    INFERRING
  • 5. Making a forecast of what will happen in the future based on past experience or evidence
    CLOSELY related to inferring however, note the difference
    Inferring attempts to explain what IS happening or HAS ALREADY happened
    Predicting is a forecast of what WILL happen
    PREDICTING
  • 6. The process of grouping items together that are alike in some way
    MAKING MODELS
    Creating representations of complex objects or processes
    CLASSIFYING
  • 7. Scientists possess several attitudes:
    Curiosity
    Honesty
    Open-Mindedness
    Skepticism
    Creativity
    SCIENTIFIC ATTITUDES
