  • 1. 1.1 The Nature of Science Pages 4 - 11
  • 2. Goal 1 Explain how science works
  • 3.
    • Science actions
      • Observing
  • 4.
      • Studying
        • Recorded observations
  • 5.
      • Experimenting
  • 6.
      • Carefully designed experiments
        • Address the phenomenon
        • Numerous trials
        • Technology and Math
        • Transparency
          • All methods / data
          • Truthful and accurate
          • Results tested
  • 7.
    • Types of data
      • Quantitative
        • Numbers
        • Examples:
      • Qualitative
        • Descriptive
        • NO numbers
        • Examples:
  • 8.
    • Quantitative data
  • 9.
    • Qualitative data
  • 10. Goal 2 Recognize the difference between scientific law and scientific theory
  • 11.
    • Scientific law
      • Statement of an observed event / phenomenon
      • NO explanation of event / phenomenon
      • Example
        • The sun rises every morning and sets every evening.
  • 12.
    • Scientific theory
      • An explanation of an event / phenomenon
      • Tested repeatedly
      • Can be used to make predictions
      • Example
        • The sun rises every morning and sets every evening because the earth is rotating
  • 13.
    • Law or theory?
    • Objects fall towards the Earth.
    • Objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity.
    • Ice forms on ponds in the winter.
    • Ice forms on ponds in the winter because the temperature drops below 0 ° celsius.
  • 14. Goal 3 Describe the 3 branches of science and their specialties *
  • 15.
    • Biological Sciences
      • Science of living things
      • *Botany = study of plants
      • *Zoology = study of animals
      • *Ecology = study of interactions in nature
  • 16.
    • Physical Science
      • Science of matter and energy
      • *Physics = forces and energy
      • *Chemistry = matter and its changes
  • 17.
    • Earth Science
      • Science of Earth
      • *Geology = physical nature and history of Earth
      • *Meteorology = atmosphere and weather
  • 18.
