  13. 13. Scientific Method Lab
  14. 14.  http://www.uga.edu/srel/kidsdoscience/gam es/observation-puzzle.pdf  Answer the questions in your Journal
  15. 15. The scientific method is the only scientific way accepted to back up a theory or idea. This is the method on which all research projects should be based. The Scientific Method is used by researchers to support or disprove a theory.
  16. 16. The Scientific Method involves 6 steps: State the Problem GATHER INFORMATION Hypothesis Test Hypothesis Record and Analyze Conclusion
  17. 17. STATE THE PROBLEM Question- You ask a question about what you observe. State the problem or question.
  18. 18. GATHER INFORMATION Observation- You observe something in the material world, using your senses or machines which are basically extensions of those senses. AH—Look at this!
  19. 19. HYPOTHESIS Hypothesis- You predict what you think the answer to your question might be.
  20. 20. TEST THE HYPOTHESIS Method - You figure out a way to test whether the hypothesis is correct. The outcome must be measurable (quantifiable). Record and analyze data.
  21. 21. RECORD AND ANALYZE Result- You do the experiment using the method you came up with and record the results. You repeat the experiment to confirm your results by retesting.
  22. 22. CONCLUSION State Conclusion- You state whether your prediction was confirmed or not and try to explain your results.
  23. 23. http://www.occc.edu/biologyl abs/Documents/Scientific%20 Method/Car_not_start.htm
  24. 24.  Could David had more than two hypothesis? If so, give one more. (3-4 complete sentences)  Put in order: ◦ Hypothesizing ◦ Conclusion ◦ Experimentation/Test the Hypothesis ◦ Gather information ◦ Record/Analyze ◦ State the Problem
  25. 25. Scientific Method
  26. 26.  Experimental group ◦ The group on which a test is performed  Control group ◦ The group used as a standard for comparison  Constants ◦ Conditions present in the control and experimental groups that remain the same throughout the experiment  Variables ◦ Conditions present only in the experimental group ◦ Always make sure there is only one per experiment!
  27. 27. http://www.brainpop.com/science/scientificin quiry/scientificmethod/ POP Quiz http://www.brainpop.com/science/scientificin quiry/scientificmethod/quiz/
  28. 28.  Tim and Moby want you to help them! ◦ http://www.brainpop.com/science/scientificinquiry /scientificmethod/activity/
  29. 29.  Come up with a problem, some information on it and formulate a Hypothesis.
  30. 30.  What is the difference between an experimental group and a control group?  What is the difference between a constant and variable in an experiment?
  31. 31. State the Problem Gather Information Formulate Hypothesis Test the Hypothesis Results support Hypothesis Conclusion Results do NOT support Hypothesis Conclusion
  32. 32. QUESTION: Could a skydiver whose parachute failed to open hit a playground seesaw and send a small girl flying seven stories high? http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters- seesaw-saga/
  33. 33. CONCLUSION TEST HYPOTHESIS FORMULATE HYPOTHESIS GATHER INFORMATION STATE THE PROBLEM Could a skydiver whose parachute failed to open hit a playground seesaw and send a small girl flying seven stories high? WRITE YOUR OWN GRAPHIC ORGANIZER WITH THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD IN YOUR JOURNAL!!!
  34. 34. CONCLUSION If a skydiver’s parachute didn’t’ open and he landed on a seesaw with a little girl on the other end of the seesaw, she would fly at least 7 stories high. TEST HYPOTHESIS Video showed the girl passed the wall designated as 7 stories. She actually went further. FORMULATE HYPOTHESIS If a skydiver’s parachute didn’t open and he landed on a seesaw with a little girl on the other end, she would fly 7 stories high. GATHER INFORMATION Drop something on a seesaw like device the other side will pop up. STATE THE PROBLEM Could a skydiver whose parachute failed to open hit a playground seesaw and send a small girl flying seven stories high?
  35. 35. -Work together to put it in a graphic organizer. -Put both of your names on each other’s Graphic Organizer (G.O). -Paste your partner’s G.O. in your journal and date it.
  36. 36.  Know the correct order of the Scientific Method  Know how to apply the Scientific Method  Know the following terms: ◦ Scientific Method ◦ Hypothesis ◦ Experimental Group ◦ Control Group ◦ Constants ◦ Variables
  37. 37.  What did you learn today?
