Title: 10/4 GOALS: Explain the difference between a scientific theory and a scientific law Describe the major branches of science


1
10/4 GOALSExplain the difference between a
scientific theory and a scientific lawDescribe
the major branches of science
10/4 Focus Question How is a scientific theory
different than a law?
2
Scientific Theory
  • A well tested explanation for a wide range of
    observations or experimental results

Theory of Evolution
Theory of relativity
Cell theory
3
Scientific Law
  • A statement that describes what scientists expect
    to happen every time under a particular set of
    conditions.

Law of gravity
Law of conservation of mass
Keplers law of planetary motion
4
Theory or Law
  • There is a direct relationship between volume and
    temperature at constant pressure as temperature
    increases volume increases.

5
Theory or Law
  • Emc2
  • (Energy mass x speed of light squared)

6
Theory or Law
  • Plate tectonics explains the movement of the
    Earth's plates and also explains the cause of
    earthquakes, volcanoes, oceanic trenches,
    mountain range formation, and many other geologic
    phenomenon.

7
Theory or Law
  • Heat is transferred in the direction from
    substances with higher temperatures to substances
    with lower temperatures.

8
Theory or Law
  • Mendelian genetics states that single traits
    always result in a 31 ratio between dominant and
    recessive characteristics.

Round Robin Contest
  • As a table, you must come up with as many topics
    as you can that are related to each branch of
    science.
  • All members of the team must take turns writing
    down the topics on one sheet of paper.
