6th Grade Chapter 1

  1. 1. Chapter 1 The Nature of Science
  2. 2. Science and Technology Section 1-1 H.W. pg.12 Ques. 1,2 <ul><li>What is Science </li></ul><ul><li>Science is the process of trying to understand the world around you. </li></ul><ul><li>● What do you call someone who practices science? </li></ul><ul><li>A scientist </li></ul><ul><li>● We use science to create technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology is the use of knowledge learned through science </li></ul><ul><li>Examples of Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Computers, machines, cars. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Doing Science Section 1-2 H.W. Pg. 10 Ques. 1-10 <ul><li>Whenever you do science you want to solve a problem . What are some problems that you can solve? </li></ul><ul><li>- Why does a plant grow?, How do we use oxygen? </li></ul><ul><li>In order to solve your scientific problem you must conduct an experiment , which a series of tests that you perform in order to solve your problem. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Conducting Experiments <ul><li>In order to conduct an experiment you must use the Scientific Method . </li></ul><ul><li>The scientific method is a series of steps taken during an experiment. </li></ul><ul><li>• There are four stages of the scientific method: </li></ul><ul><li>Prepare </li></ul><ul><li>Plan </li></ul><ul><li>Do </li></ul><ul><li>Conclude and apply </li></ul>
  5. 5. Scientific Method <ul><li>1) Prepare : </li></ul><ul><li>- First Identify the problem (what you want to solve). </li></ul><ul><li>Next form a hypothesis . What's a hypothesis ? </li></ul><ul><li>A hypothesis is a statement that can be tested about a problem. (Why you think this problem exists). </li></ul><ul><li>Lets think of some problems and hypothesis's. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Scientific Method (continued) <ul><li>2) Plan : </li></ul><ul><li>Here we design an experiment in order to test our hypothesis. </li></ul><ul><li>3) Do : </li></ul><ul><li>Test our hypothesis & Observe and record the results of our experiment. </li></ul><ul><li>4) Conclude and Apply : </li></ul><ul><li>Analyze our results (why our results occurred) </li></ul><ul><li>& </li></ul><ul><li>Draw conclusions (what can say about our experiment. Did it work? Why, Did it fail? Why? </li></ul><ul><li>And if so, what can we do next time to make it work? </li></ul>
  7. 7. Important things to consider when using the scientific method <ul><li>Trials, variables, and Data Tables </li></ul><ul><li>Trials are repeated experiments, performed in order to make sure that your results are consistent. (the more trials you perform the truer the results.) </li></ul><ul><li>Why else would you perform more than just one trial? </li></ul><ul><li>-Human error, faulty material </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Variables are factors in an experiment that can change. (Watering plants) </li></ul><ul><li>Data Tables- these organize your observations and results into columns and rows. </li></ul><ul><li>We make data tables in order to keep track of results and be able to communicate them to others. </li></ul><ul><li>Styrofoam presentation! </li></ul>
