Transcript of Scientific Inquiry

Communication is the of ideas and experimental
findings with others through writing and speaking.

Scientific Inquiry
What is Science?
is a way of learning about the natural world, including the knowledge gained by exploring the natural world.

The Scientific Process
Scientific refers to the diverse ways in which scientists the natural world and propose explanations based on the evidence they gather.
Step by Step
POSING QUESTIONS



Thinking like a scientist...
SCIENCE
Scientists use skills such as, observing, inferring, predicting, classifying, and making models to learn more about the world and make scientific progress.
OBSERVING
Observing is to use one or more of your to gather information. Your senses include: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and .
senses
smell
QUALITATIVE OBSERVATIONS
Observations that deal with a
number
or amount.
QUANTITATIVE OBSERVATIONS
Observations that deal with descriptions that
cannot
be expressed in numbers.
INFERRING
Inferring is when you
or the things you observed.
explain
interpret
Inferences are not just a wild
. It is based on
reasoning from what you already know.
guess
PREDICTING
Predicting means making a
of what will happen in the future based on past experience or .
forecast
evidence
Predictions are inferences, but for the .
future
CLASSIFYING
Classifying is the process of
together items that are alike in some way.

Classifying objects and inform-
ation help to stay
so that it could be easily found
and used later.
grouping
organized
MAKING MODELS
Making models involves
creating of
complex objects or processes.
Models can be
objects, like a globe or TV set; or
they could be generated by a
like architecture
designs.
A model accurately
shows the proportions between
its parts. "Drawn to scale"

COMMUNICATING
Scientific Inquiry often begins with a
problem or about an
observation.
These questions come from
and inferences that you make. Perhaps something you saw sparked curiosity.

OBSERVATIONS
A is a possible explanation
for a set of observations or answer to a
scientific question.
HYPOTHESIS
In science, a hypothesis must be . This means that researchers must be able to carry out the investigations and gather evidence that will either
or the hypothesis.
TESTABLE
SUPPORT DISPROVE
Once a hypothesis is developed, the next step
is to design an to gather
evidence that supports or disproves the hypothesis.
VARIABLES
EXPERIMENT
Before collecting data, it is important to have an
operational definition, which is a statement that
how to measure a variable or define a term.
Data should be recorded in a . Facts, figures, and other evidence gathered through observations are considered .
