Title: Scientific Method


1
Scientific Method
  • DR. HERC

2
Scientific Method
  • Be able to utilize the scientific method of
    solving problems and explain each step used in
    solving the problem, issue or situation
    presented.

3
  • D Define the problem (Pose a
  • question).
  • Curiosity leads to thinking about
  • questions.

4
  • R. Research
  • Observational research leading to
  • inferences ( your interpretation)
  • Might use any of the five senses or all
  • of them sight, hearing, touch, smell,
  • and taste. Gather as much
  • information as possible.

5
  • H Hypothesis
  • An educated guess (using the
  • information gathered) to the answer of
  • the problem, issue or situation.
  • Must be testable by observation or
  • experimentation.

6
  • E Experiment
  • Examine all the factors that can
    change during an experiment.
  • Independent Variables these are
    variables that can be manipulated or change
    during the experiment by the scientist or one
    doing the experiment.
  • Dependent Variable responding
    variables, those variables that are expected to
    change as a response to the independent variable.
  • Control that factor of an experiment
    which will not change and all other variables are
    compared to.

7
  • R Results
  • Collecting data. These are facts, figures
    and other evidence that you learn during
    experimentation. Inference the information
  • gathered. This is your logical interpretation
    of the facts.
  • Qualitative quality of information such
    as
  • color, odor, and sound.
  • Quantitative quantity or measured
  • information such as size, temperature and
  • volume.

8
  • C Conclusion
  • Final statement summarizing what was
  • learned from an experiment.
  • Always ask yourself Did you fulfill the
  • purpose of the experiment or solve the
  • problem.
