  1. 1. INTRODUCING SCIENCE The Scientific Method
  2. 2. Question <ul><li>Are the cars travelling along Yishun Avenue 7, outside Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School speeding? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Scientific Method <ul><li>Science is about solving problems in proper steps. </li></ul><ul><li>Science is about investigation and learning by inquiry. </li></ul><ul><li>Experiments and analytical thinking need to be conducted to find answers. </li></ul><ul><li>Causes and Effects </li></ul>
  4. 4. Scientific Method <ul><li>Make Observations </li></ul><ul><li>Analyse, Infer and Predict </li></ul><ul><li>Plan Experiment </li></ul><ul><li>Collect Result </li></ul><ul><li>Draw Conclusions </li></ul>
  5. 5. Scientific Method The quantity “Day” is fixed. The quantity “Height” is measured each day. We call Day – Independent Variable We call Height – Dependent Variable 5.6 3.8 2.5 1.2 0.5 0.3 0.0 Height /cm 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 Day
  6. 6. Scientific Method <ul><li>Observations need to be recorded clearly </li></ul>Independent Variable Dependent Variable
  7. 7. Scientific Method <ul><li>Think, analyse… </li></ul>
  8. 8. Scientific Method PROBLEM OBSERVATION ANALYSE PLAN EXPERIMENT RECORD CONCLUDE DISCUSSION and ANALYSE
  9. 9. Back at the Question <ul><li>Are the cars travelling along Yishun Avenue 7, outside Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School speeding? </li></ul>How much is speeding? Which time of the day? How many records should I take? Distance and Time Stopwatch and Tape When to start and stop? Cars that passes a green light or start to move at red light?
