Transcript

  • 1. The Scientific Method ♫ A Way to Solve a Problem ♫
  • 2. What is the Scientific Method?
    • It is the steps someone takes to identify a question, develop a hypothesis, design and carry out steps or procedures to test the hypothesis, and document observations and findings to share with someone else.
    • In other words, it’s a way to solve a problem.
  • 3. Scientist have to take the time to think logically when they are investigating a question or problem.
    • They break things down into many steps that make sense.
  • 4. Scientists develop a question, gather information and form an hypothesis.
  • 5. The next step scientists take is to create and conduct an experiment to test their hypothesis.
  • 6. A key to experiments is observing what happens and writing it down.
    • Gathering information or data and documenting it so it is readable and makes sense to others is really important.
  • 7. Once a scientist completes an experiment, they often repeat it to see if they get the same findings and results.
    • This is really what we call verification, or checking things out to make sure everything was valid and will happen again and again.
  • 8. Scientists share their experiments and findings with others.
    • Because they share their experiments and findings, scientists can learn from each other and often use someone else’s experiences to help them with what they are studying or doing.
  • 9. The steps of the Scientific Method are:
    • Question
    • Research
    • Hypothesis
    • Procedure/Method
    • Data
    • Observations
    • Conclusion
