  1. WHAT IS SCIENCE? INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY OF AC EIGHTH GRADE SCIENCE SHOCKLEY

  2. OBJECTIVES • YWBAT: • USE AND APPLY THE PROCESSES OF OBSERVING, COMMUNICATING, CLASSIFYING, MEASURING,ESTIMATING, COLLECTING, INFERRING,PREDICTING, INTERPRETING, AND APPLYING DATA HYPOTHESIZING, AND IDENTIFYING VARIABLES • IDENTIFY BENEFITS OF SCIENCE AROUND YOU • EXPLAIN THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD • FORMULATE HYPOTHESES • EXPLAIN THE USES AND LIMITATIONS OF MODELS • COMPARE & CONTRAST THEORIES, LAWS, FACTS, & OPINIONS

  3. OBJECTIVES (CONT.) • DEMONSTRATE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SAFETY IN A LABORATORY • EXPLAIN IMPORTANCE OF ISU (International System units or Metric system) • COLLECT, RECORD, & ANALYZE INFORMATION USING VARIOUS TOOLS • IDENTIFY THE VARIOUS COMPONENTS THAT WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE OUR EARTH FUNCTION • ANALYZE HOW THE DIFFERENT COMPONENTS INTERACT AND INFLUENCE EACH OTHER • EVALUATE CURRENT CONCERNS

  4. THE LIMITATIONS OF SCIENCE SCIENCE IS LIMITED DUE TO THE NATURE OF SCIENCE AND THE NATURE OF HUMANS BECAUSE SCIENCE • DEALS WITH OBSERVABLE PHENOMENA • DEALS WITH MEASURABLE PHENOMENA • DEALS WITH REPEATABLE PHENOMENA • CAN DESCRIBE AND OFFER EXPLANATIONS BUT THESE EXPLANANTIONS MUST BE TESTED REPEATEDLY TO BE PROVEN AS FACT. OFTEN NEW INFORMATION CAN COME ALONG THAT CHANGES THE EXPLANATION • CAN BE FAULTY DUE TO HUMAN ERROR AND/OR BIAS

  5. TERMS TO KNOW • SCIENTIFIC METHOD • LAW • HYPOTHESIS • VARIABLES • THEORY • OBSERVATIONS, ASSUMPTIONS,FACTS, OPINIONS • MODELS • SCIENTIFIC EQUIPMENT – SCALES, BALANCES, BEAKERS, ETC. • METRIC UNIT TERMS

  6. REMEMBER TO CHECK BLOG, AGENDAS, AND REFER TO WORKSHEETS FOR MORE INFORMATION!
