  • Similar to a recipie for science.
  • The scientific method is a process used to systematically investigate observations, solve problems, and test hypotheses.
  • The scientific method helps scientists ensure that the theories they test are true by testing a hypotheses with tests.
1 problem research question
1. Problem/Research Question
  • A problem is a question to be considered, solved or answered.
  • Everybody constantly encounters minor problems everyday. Most days start with the question, "Should I get out of bed or not?" That is a problem.
2 observation
2. Observation
  • An observation is the act of noting and recording something with instruments.
  • Observations help scientists decide how certain variables might affect the problem.

3. Hypothesis
  • It is a prediction about the relationship between variables & can be tested.
  • The hypothesis is formed by examining the observations carefully and making a an educated guess as to what the outcome might be.
4 experiment
4. Experiment
  • The fourth step of the scientific method is to do an experiment that tests the hypothesis.
  • It answers scientific question by testing a hypothesis using a series of carefully controlled steps.
5 conclusion
5. Conclusion
  • Scientists draw conclusions by examining the data from the experiment.
  • The final summary of an investigation or experiment.
