    Warm-up
  • REVIEW -The Scientific Method
  • 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.
  • The Scientific Method
    The Scientific Method involves 6 steps:
    State the Problem
    GATHER INFORMATION
    Hypothesis
    Test Hypothesis
    Record and Analyze
    Conclusion
  • The Scientific Method
    STATE THE PROBLEM
    Question- You ask a question
    about what you observe.
    State the problem or question.
  • The Scientific Method
    GATHER INFORMATION
    Observation- You observe something
    in the material world, using your senses
    or machines which are basically
    extensions of those senses.
    AH—Look at this!
  • The Scientific Method
    HYPOTHESIS
    Hypothesis- You predict what
    you think the answer to
    your question might be.
  • The Scientific Method
    TEST THE HYPOTHESIS
    Method- You figure out a way to test whether the hypothesis is correct. The outcome must be
    measurable (quantifiable).
    Record and analyze data.
  • The Scientific Method
    RECORD AND ANALYZE
    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.
  • The Scientific Method
    CONCLUSION
    State Conclusion- You state whether
    your prediction was confirmed or not
    and try to explain your results.
  • LAB – “David and His Car”
    http://www.occc.edu/biologylabs/Documents/Scientific%20Method/Car_not_start.htm
  • Could David had more than two hypothesis? If so, give one more. (3-4 complete sentences)
    Put in order:
    Hypothesizing
    Conclusion
    Experimentation/Test the Hypothesis
    Gather information
    Record/Analyze
    State the Problem
    Journal
  • Wednesday, November 3rd
    Scientific Method
  • Experimental group
    The group on which a test is performed
    Control group
    The group used as a standard for comparison
    Constants
    Conditions present in the control and experimental groups that remain the same throughout the experiment
    Variables
    Conditions present only in the experimental group
    Always make sure there is only one per experiment!
