### SCIENTIFIC PROBLEM SOLVING

THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD:

A systematic approach to problem solving.

NATURE OF SCIENCE
• Q. What is Science?

• Prefixes And Suffixes Used In Science.
• Preview The Textbook.
• Hwk: 5 y/o neighbor science tour. 200-5,000 words
Step 1: Identify the Problem
• Observations in nature.
• Questions from previous learning.
• Imagination.
• Separate the Problem From the Symptoms.
Step 2: Research the Problem

• What is a hypothesis?
• What is bias?
Step 4: Test the Hypothesis
• Observing and Recording Data.
• Data Tables And Other Recordings.
• Variables.
• Control Group.

• Does the Data Support Your Hypothesis?
• It’s OK to be wrong. You learned.
Step 6: Conclusions
