  • Transcript

    • 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.
