  59. 59. Skills and Processes Skills The skill of ……. Observing using senses to gather information about objects or events. Also includes the use of instruments to extend the range of our senses. Comparing identifying the similarities and differences between two or more objects, concepts or processes. Classifying grouping objects or events based on common characteristics. Using apparatus and equipment knowing the functions and limitations of various apparatus, and developing the ability to select and handle them appropriately for various tasks. Communicating transmitting and receiving information presented in various forms – verbal, pictorial, tabular or graphical. Inferring interpreting or explaning observations or pieces of data or information
  60. 60. Skills and Processes Skills The skill of ……. Predicting assessing the likelihood of an outcome based on prior knowledge of how things usually turn out. Analysing identifying the parts of objects, information or processes, and the patterns and relationships between these parts. Generating possibilities Exploring all the alternatives, possibilities and choices beyond the obvious or preferred one Evaluating Assessing the reasonableness, accuracy and quality of information, processes or ideas. Also assessing the quality and feasibility of objects Formulating hypothesis Making a general explanation for a related set of observations or events. It is an extension of inferring.
  61. 61. <ul><li>All the skills and processes listed above are seen as part of the total process of scientific inquiry . </li></ul>Skills and Processes Processes Creative Problem Solving This is a process of analysing a problem and choosing an innovative and relevant solution in order to remedy or alter a problem situation Decision-Making Decision-making is the process of establishing and applying criteria to select from among seemingly equal alternatives. The process of establishing criteria involves consideration of the consequences and values. Investigation This involves formulating questions or hypothesis, devising fair methods and carrying out those methods to find out answers to the questions or to verify the hypothesis
  62. 62. Attitudes and Ethics Attitudes and Ethics Curiosity Desire to explore the environment and question what they find. Creativity Suggest innovative and relevant ways to solve problems. Integrity Handle and communicate data and information with integrity. Objectivity Seek data and information to validate observations and explanations objectively. Open-mindedness Accept all knowledge as tentative and willing to change their view if the evidence is convincing. Perseverance Pursue a problem until a satisfactory solution if found. Responsibility Show care and concern for living things and awareness of the responsibility they have for the quality of the environment.
