    • The Scientific Method
    • The Scientific Method
      Ask a question
      (based on observations)
      Form a hypothesis
      Collect the data
      (to test the hypothesis)
      Analyze the data
      Draw conclusions
    • Asking a research question
      Making an observation (information obtained through the use of senses) starts the scientific process with a research question.
    • Forming a hypothesis
      When observations are joined by an inference (drawing logical conclusions based on what you know and what you have learned), then a hypothesis is formed.
    • Research Question v. Hypothesis
    • We plan an experimental design in order to test the hypothesis. The experiment generates information which we collect.
      Collecting data
    • Data collected from the experiment has to be analyzed to make sense out of it.
      Analyzing data
    • Finally, the collected and analyzed data shows that either the hypothesis was supported or not.
      Draw and report conclusions
