What is the Scientific Method?
  • It is the steps someone takes to identify a
    question, develop a hypothesis, design and carry
    out steps or procedures to test the hypothesis,
    and document observations and findings to share
    with someone else.
  • In other words, its a way to solve a problem.

Scientist have to take the time to think
logically when they are investigating a question
or problem.
  • They break things down into many steps that make
    sense.

4
Scientists develop a question, gather information
and form an hypothesis.
5
The next step scientists take is to create and
conduct an experiment to test their hypothesis.
6
A key to experiments is observing what happens
and writing it down.
  • Gathering information or data and documenting it
    so it is readable and makes sense to others is
    really important.

7
Once a scientist completes an experiment, they
often repeat it to see if they get the same
findings and results.
  • This is really what we call verification, or
    checking things out to make sure everything was
    valid and will happen again and again.

8
Scientists share their experiments and findings
with others.
  • Because they share their experiments and
    findings, scientists can learn from each other
    and often use someone elses experiences to help
    them with what they are studying or doing.

9
The steps of the Scientific Method are
  • Ask a Question/State the Problem
  • Research/ Gather Information
  • Form a Hypothesis
  • Perform Experiments including the
    Procedure/Methods/ Materials
  • Record Data/ Analize Results
  • Form a Conclusion
  • Communicate Results
