    6th Grade  Chapter 1 6th Grade Chapter 1 Presentation Transcript

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