  • 1. The Scientific Method
  • 2. The Scientific Method The scientific method is the only scientific way accepted to back up a theory or idea. This is the method on which all research projects should be based. The Scientific Method is used by researchers to support or disprove a theory.
  • 3. The Scientific Method
    • The Scientific Method involves 5 steps:
            • Observation
            • Question
            • Hypothesis
            • Method
            • Result
  • 4. The Scientific Method Observation - You observe something in the material world, using your senses or machines which are basically extensions of those senses. AH—Look at this!
  • 5. The Scientific Method Question - You ask a question about what you observe. State the problem or question.
  • 6. The Scientific Method Hypothesis - You predict what you think the answer to your question might be.
  • 7. The Scientific Method Method - You figure out a way to test whether the hypothesis is correct. The outcome must be measurable (quantifiable). Record and analyze data.
  • 8. The Scientific Method Result - You do the experiment using the method you came up with and record the results. You repeat the experiment to confirm your results by retesting.
  • 9. The Scientific Method State Conclusion - You state whether your prediction was confirmed or not and try to explain your results.
  • 10. The Scientific Method Test you knowledge by visiting the Scientific Scenarios and see if you can identify the steps of the scientific method.
