    The Scientific Method and a Guide Through it The Scientific Method and a Guide Through it Presentation Transcript

    • The Scientific Method An introduction and guide through the steps
    • What is the Scientific Method? • The Scientific Method is a way to ask and answer a scientific question by making observations and doing experiments.
    • Why do we need the Scientific Method? • We need the Scientific Method to help us understand a science problem that we can’t do without the steps. • We also need the Scientific Method to help scientists with the work that they do.
    • Ask a Question • This is the first step to the Method. Let’s say you had the question to ask: Why does an object stay in motion? That would be your question and first step.
    • Do Background Research • This is the second step. To do background research you could look it up in a encyclopedia or on the internet. It will give you information and will help you know more about the question.
    • Construct a Hypothesis • A hypothesis is a fancy word for guess. From the information you gathered you have to draw conclusions and create a guess.
    • Test your Hypothesis with a Experiment • After you create a hypothesis you should test it out. When you test it make sure you record what you did and what happened.
    • Analyze Your Data and Draw Conclusions • Now you take the data you gathered and the test data and you draw a conclusion. Remember you have to think before you have your final conclusion.
    • Communicate Your Results • This is the final step. All you have to do is talk it out.
    • • There! Now you know the steps of the Scientific Method!!!
