What You Will Learn <ul><li>Scientific methods are based on six steps, which may be followed in different ways based on the kind of question being asked. </li></ul><ul><li>Scientific investigations begin with a question and proceed by forming a hypothesis and then testing it. </li></ul><ul><li>Scientists use a variety of methods to analyze and report their data. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
14.
What Are Scientific Methods? <ul><li>Scientific methods are a series of steps followed to solve problems. </li></ul><ul><li>The six steps used in scientific methods are asking a question, forming a hypothesis, testing the hypothesis, analyzing the results, drawing conclusions, and communicating results. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
15.
What Are Scientific Methods? , continued <ul><li>Scientists may use all of the steps or some of the steps during an investigation. They may even repeat some of the steps or do the steps in a different order. </li></ul><ul><li>How scientists choose to use the steps depends on what works best to answer their question. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
17.
Scientific Methods The Nature of Physical Science Chapter 1
18.
Asking a Question <ul><li>Asking a question is often the first step in using scientific methods. </li></ul><ul><li>Asking a question usually results from making many observations. </li></ul><ul><li>Observation is the process of obtaining information by using the senses. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
19.
Forming a Hypothesis <ul><li>A hypothesis is a testable explanation or answer to a question. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
20.
Hypothesis The Nature of Physical Science Chapter 1
21.
Testing the Hypothesis <ul><li>After scientists form a hypothesis, they usually test the hypothesis to find out if it is a reasonable answer to their question. </li></ul><ul><li>A controlled experiment compares the results from a control group with the results from experimental groups. A controlled experiment is a good way to test a hypothesis. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
22.
Testing the Hypothesis , continued <ul><li>The factors that are kept the same between the groups are called controlled parameters. </li></ul><ul><li>The one factor that changes between the groups is called a variable parameter. </li></ul><ul><li>Data are any pieces of information acquired through observation or experimentation. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
23.
Analyzing the Results <ul><li>After scientists test a hypothesis by performing an experiment, they usually analyze their results. </li></ul><ul><li>Analyzing results by using tables and graphs helps scientists understand relationships between the data. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
24.
Analyzing the Results , continued <ul><li>Analyzing data from repeated tests can help scientists determine if their data are accurate and reproducible. </li></ul><ul><li>Data are reproducible when you get similar data from many tests. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
26.
Drawing Conclusions <ul><li>After scientists analyze their results, they usually draw conclusions about whether their hypothesis was supported. </li></ul><ul><li>Valid conclusions can only be obtained with reproducible data. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
27.
Drawing Conclusions , continued <ul><li>Data are considered reproducible when scientists get similar data from many repeated tests. </li></ul><ul><li>Reproducible data helps scientists make sure that the results of their experiment were not an accident. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
28.
Communicating Results <ul><li>After drawing conclusions, scientists often communicate their results. </li></ul><ul><li>When scientists communicate their results, it allows others to continue the investigation. </li></ul><ul><li>Results can be communicated through scientific papers, presentations, and the Internet. </li></ul>Section 2 Scientific Methods Chapter 1
29.
Bellringer <ul><li>Read the Safety First! section on pages [xxvi-xxix]. Then, make a two-column table. In the first column, list the types of clothing that you should always wear in the lab. In the second column, list the types of clothing that you should never wear in the lab. Create this table in your Science Journal. Refer to this table when planning what to wear to school on days that you might be working in the lab. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
30.
What You Will Learn <ul><li>You can take responsibility for your own safety in the laboratory. </li></ul><ul><li>Following directions, taking safety precautions, and following proper cleanup procedures help keep you safe. </li></ul><ul><li>If an accident happens in the laboratory, first make sure that you are safe and then tell your teacher about the accident. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
31.
Keeping Yourself Safe <ul><li>Take responsibility for your own safety when working in a science lab. </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid accidents by being aware of what is going on around you. </li></ul><ul><li>Report all accidents, no matter how minor they may seem, to the teacher. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
32.
Elements of Safety <ul><li>Recognize and understand the safety symbols that scientists use for particular dangers involved in performing an experiment. </li></ul><ul><li>Always read directions before beginning a lab activity and then follow the directions exactly. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
33.
Elements of Safety , continued <ul><li>Neatness is important when conducting scientific investigations. </li></ul><ul><li>Clear the work area of unnecessary objects and clean up any spills as soon as they happen. </li></ul><ul><li>Use all of the safety equipment needed to perform an experiment. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
34.
Elements of Safety , continued <ul><li>Goggles, gloves, and aprons are examples of protective safety equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>Clean the work area after finishing an experiment and wash your hands thoroughly. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
36.
Responding to Accidents <ul><li>Learning to cope with accidents is one way to take responsibility for your safety. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure that you can locate and use the first-aid supplies and special safety equipment in your science lab. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
37.
Responding to Accidents , continued <ul><li>If an accident occurs, first make sure that you are safe. Then, tell your teacher about the accident. </li></ul><ul><li>If an injury requires immediate attention, the teacher may perform first aid. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
38.
Responding to Accidents , continued <ul><li>First aid is emergency medical care for someone who has been hurt or who is sick. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not perform first aid unless you know the proper first-aid procedures that must be followed for the type of accidental injury that has occurred. </li></ul>Section 3 Safety in Science Chapter 1
