Transcript of The Scientific Method & Writing Lab Reports

photo (cc) Malte Sörensen @ flickr By: Katie Kassal The Scientific Method A standard way of creating and formulating an experiment. Scientific Method There are 6 basic steps in creating an experiment. 1. State the problem
2. Gather information
3. Form hypothesis
4. Perform experiment
5. Analyze data
6. Draw conclusions Here's an acronym to help you remember the order of the scientific method. Six Great Farmers Plant All Day t

s State the Problem SIX The scientist identifies the question or subject that he/she wishes to study. Gather Information GREAT The scientist researches the subject that he/she is trying to study. Form Hypothesis FARMERS A hypothesis is the scientist's educated or best guess as to what will happen in an experiment.
Hypotheses should include no personal pronouns.
Hypotheses are usually is in "If...then" format. Perform Experiment PLANT The scientist performs the experiment created to test the hypothesis Remember... when you are creating the experiment, be sure to note your independent* and dependent* variables. *Independent Variable- something intentionally changed by the scientist *Dependent Variable- something that might be affected by the change in the independent variable. and Writing Lab Reports Analyze Data ALL Scientists compile data into charts and graphs.
This helps make sense of the information gathered from the experiment. and Graphs Tables Draw Conclusions DAY The scientist decides whether the original hypothesis was correct. If the hypothesis is correct, then you are done! If the hypothesis is incorrect, then you need to make a new hypothesis and repeat the experiment. Don't forget! When writing your conclusion, include REE (Results with Evidence and Explanation), PE (Possible Errors), and PA (Practical Applications) The Scientific Method Song Sung to the tune of "Just a Dream" by Nelly.
