Transcript of The Scientific Method

The 7 steps to creating a great experiment! The Scientific Method There are 7 steps in the Scientific method. Hypothesis:
A guess to a scientific problem. The fifth step of the Scientific Method is recording and analyzing your data. Scientist observe and record important information while they are in the experimenting process. The third step in the scientific method is to get a hypothesis. Using all of the information that you got, make a guess to the problem. The Scientific method is an organized method that scientists use to get answers. The first step is to state the problem. A scientific problem is ALWAYS stated as a question. Example: What kind of paper towel can hold the most water until ripping? Vivid Vocab!! OBJECTIVE:
The problem that the experiment is designed to solve, the goal of the experiment. The second step is to research information on your scientific problem. Example: I think that the Kroger brand of paper towel will hold the most water. The 4th step to the Scientific Method is to perform the experiment to see if the hypothesis is correct,. Variable:
The factor that is being tested in the experiment. Control:
An experiment that is tested without the varible. In order to make sure that the results are caused by only one of the variables, or one of the things you are testing. Data:
Recorded observations and measurements, also shown as notes, tables, and graphs. The sixth step is to state a conclusion. State a conclusion based on the information that was found in the experiment in the form of a statement. And the last step is to repeat the work. Scientists repeat the experiments several times to make sure that the data they found is right. Example: The Kroger brand held the most water according to the particles they use in their formula. Thanks for watching!
