    • 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!
