Transcript of "Scientificmethod"

  1. 1. The Scientific Method
  2. 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.

  4. 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. 5. The Scientific Method Question - You ask a question about what you observe. State the problem or question.
  6. 6. The Scientific Method Hypothesis - You predict what you think the answer to your question might be.
  7. 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. 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. 9. The Scientific Method State Conclusion - You state whether your prediction was confirmed or not and try to explain your results.
  10. 10. The Scientific Method Test you knowledge by visiting the Scientific Scenarios and see if you can identify the steps of the scientific method.
