Section 1 thinking like a scientist

Section 1: Thinking Like a Scientist

  • What skills do scientists use to learn about the world?


Thinking like a scientist

Thinking Like a Scientist

Inferring When you explain or interpret your observations, you are making an inference.

Observing By patiently observing chimpanzees, Jane Goodall learned

many things using her senses about chimpanzee behavior.

Classifying

Field notes like these contain many details about a chimp’s daily activities.

PredictionPredictions are forecasts of what will happen next.


Making models

Making Models

Making models involves creating representations of complex objects or processes. This model traces a chimp’s journey through the forest.


Scale models

Scale Models

  • A model that has accurate proportions to its parts!

Section 2 the study of life

Section 2: The Study of Life

  • How are the branches of life science related?

  • What are some big ideas in life science?


Branches of life science

Branches of Life Science

Though life science can be divided into branches,

the different fields of study often overlap.


Big ideas in life science

BIG IDEAS IN LIFE SCIENCE!!

  • Organisms are diverse, yet share some characteristics.

  • Groups of organisms change over time.

  • The structure and function of organisms are complementary (work together).

  • Organisms operate on the same physical qualities as the natural world.

Section 3 scientific inquiry

Section 3: Scientific Inquiry

  • What is scientific inquiry?

  • What makes a hypothesis testable?


The nature of inquiry

The Nature of Inquiry

There is no set path that a scientific inquiry must follow.

Pose Questions

Form a Hypothesis

Communicate

Design an Experiment

Draw Conclusions

Collect and Interpret Data


What makes a hypothesis testable

What makes a Hypothesis testable???

  • You have to have a variable: factors that are changed in the experiment.

  • The factor that is purposely changed is the manipulated variable.

  • The factor that may change in response to the manipulated variable is the responding variable.

  • You can only manipulate one variable at a time for the experiment to be CONTROLLED.


Collecting and interpreting data

Collecting and Interpreting Data

A data table helps you organize the information you collect in an experiment.Graphing the data may reveal any patterns in your data.


Control group

Control Group

  • After you get your data, to see if your hypothesis wascorrect, you must compare your results to a group that no variable was added called the control group.

Section 4 safety in the laboratory

Section 4: Safety in the Laboratory

  • Why is preparation important when carrying out scientific investigations in the lab and in the field?

  • What should you do if an accident occurs?


Safety in the lab

Safety in the Lab

These safety symbols remind you to work carefully when performing labs in this textbook series. Make sure you are familiar with each safety symbol and what it means.


In case of an accident

In Case of an Accident

When any accident occurs, no matter how minor, notify your teacher immediately. Then listen to your teacher’s directions and carry them out quickly.
