Transcript of The Scientific Method Notes

What is the Scientific Method?
The process that is used to find the answers to questions about the world around us.
What are the steps the Scientific Method?
Step 1: Identify the Problem
Use observations that you have made to write a question that addresses the topic you want to investigate.
Step 2: Research
Gather information about your question from the internet, books, and observations.
The Scientific Method Notes
Essential Question:
How do scientists make discoveries?
Put on your headphones. Go to BrainPop.com and log in using the information provided by your teacher.
In the search bar type "Scientific Method." Watch the video carefully and write down two new/interesting facts on your notes. You may watch it more than once if you need.

ECQ #1
#3
Predict the answer to your questions or the outcome of the experiment.
-A hypothesis can lead to a prediction
-Predictions should be stated in an
if, then
statement.
--Hypothesis ex: acid rain slows plant growth.
Prediction:
If
a plant is watered with only acid rain
then
the plant will grow at half its normal rate.
Hypothesis continued
Step 3: Form a Hypothesis
#5
Step 4: Create and Perform an Experiment
-Develop a procedure for a reliable experiment and address safety rules.
#6
Step 5: Results
Create charts and graphs of the data and observations.
#8
#7
Step 6: Analysis
Determine if the data supports the hypothesis.
NOT if you were "wrong" or "right"
Step 7: Conclusion
Summarize the important parts of the experiment and the results.
#2
Carefully read every slide, write down the missing information, and look at the pictures. Highlight the words that you write and record the red ECQ numbers.
-A controlled experiment tests only one factor at a time.
-Control group is compared with an experimental group
-A variable is the one factor that differs between the 2 groups.
-Record data and observations during the experiment.
