    1. 1. The Science of Biology What is science? -Investigate and understand -Explain events -Make predictions
    2. 2. The Science of Biology <ul><li>Science deals only with natural world </li></ul><ul><li>Accuracy is essential and used to organize </li></ul><ul><li>Scientists must be able to test proposed explanations </li></ul>
