  2. 2. THE ISSUE OF THE DAY…
  3. 3. THINK OF A PROBLEM YOU SOLVED IN THE LAST WEEK AND DESCRIBE HOW YOU SOLVED IT.
  4. 4. SAVE FRED! <ul><li>Challenge: What approaches do you use to solve problems? </li></ul><ul><li>Procedure: Read procedure on pages A-5 and A-6. Write one sentence that describes what you will be doing. </li></ul><ul><li>Glossary: Hypothesis, Scientific Method (define) </li></ul>
  5. 5. SAVE FRED <ul><li>Complete the before column of the anticipation guide #1 and 2 (tape into notebook). </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Fred has been spending his summer boating on the great lakes.

What did you learn from this activity that you could use to solve other problems? How do you think this compares to how scientists solve problems? </li></ul>
  8. 8. PROBLEM SOLVING MODEL 1 <ul><li>1. Identify the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Propose a solution. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Conduct an Experiment </li></ul>
  9. 9. PROBLEM SOLVING MODEL 2 <ul><li>1. State the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Propose a solution. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Conduct an experiment. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Analyze the data. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Make conclusions. </li></ul>
  10. 10. PROBLEM SOLVING MODEL 3 <ul><li>1. Conduct an experiment. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Discuss results. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Propose other solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Conduct a different experiment. </li></ul>
  11. 11. TRADITIONAL SCIENTIFIC METHOD <ul><li>1. State the problem or question. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Propose an explanation (hypothesis). </li></ul><ul><li>3. Collect evidence (by conducting an experiment). </li></ul><ul><li>4. Analyze data. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Draw conclusions, revise and repeat experiment if necessary. </li></ul>
