Observation Inference

  1. 1. September 2, 2009<br />Bellwork: <br />1. Hand in student information form. <br /> 2. Hand your “About Me” Poster? (It is <br />DUE tomorrow!)<br />
  2. 2. List FIVE observations regarding the cartoon above.<br />
  3. 3. Objective:STUDENTS WILL RECOGNIZE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN OBJECTIVE AND AN INFERENCE.<br />
  4. 4. Observations:<br /> We use our senses to gather <br /> information about the world <br /> around us. There are two <br /> types of observations.<br />
  5. 5. Qualitative:<br />Qualitative observation: (quality) Usually made with our senses. <br />Color, shape, feel, taste, sound.<br />Examples:<br /><ul><li>Olivia is wearing a blue sweater.
  6. 6. The lab tabletop is smooth.
  7. 7. The dog’s fur is shiny.</li></li></ul><li>Quantitative:<br />Quantitative observation: <br /> (quantity: How many. It will always be <br /> a number.<br />Based on exact measurement.<br />Examples:<br /><ul><li>The room is 8 meters wide.
  8. 8. Sarah is 141-cm tall.
  9. 9. Sam weighs 115 pounds.</li></li></ul><li>Inferences:<br /> A logical interpretation of an event that is based on observations and prior knowledge.<br />Example:<br />This car is fast because it is a red Mustang!<br />Do you KNOW this?!<br />
  10. 10. Making Inferences:<br />You are at the counter in the office to get a bus pass signed. You see a student leave the principal’s office crying and upset. We could make an inference as to why the student is upset.<br />Could be in trouble (ISS, OSS, expelled)<br />Family problems at home (sick, accident)<br />Student not feeling well<br />Student has poor grades (failing, retention)<br />
  11. 11. Observation VS Inferences:<br />Observation – Based on the five senses:<br />Sight<br />Smell<br />Touch<br />Taste<br />Hearing<br />Inference – Based on prior knowledge or opinion<br />
  12. 12. observation vsInference: <br />3 Observations?<br />3 Inferences?<br />
