The Scientific Method

The scientific method is the only scientific

way accepted to back up a theory or

idea. This is the method on which all

research projects should be based. The

Scientific Method is used by researchers

to support or disprove a theory.

The Scientific Method
• The Scientific Method involves 5 steps:
• Observation
• Question
• Hypothesis
• Method
• Result
The Scientific Method

Observation- You observe something

in the material world, using your senses

or machines which are basically

extensions of those senses.

AH—Look at this!

The Scientific Method

Question- You ask a question

about what you observe.

State the problem or question.

The Scientific Method

Hypothesis- You predict what

you think the answer to

your question might be.

The Scientific Method

Method - You figure out a way to test whether

the hypothesis is correct. The outcome must be

measurable (quantifiable).

Record and analyze data.

The Scientific Method

Result- You do the experiment using

the method you came up with and

record the results. You repeat the

experiment to confirm your

results by retesting.

The Scientific Method

State Conclusion- You state whether

your prediction was confirmed or not

and try to explain your results.

The Scientific Method

Test you knowledge by

visiting the Scientific Scenarios

and see if you can identify

the steps of the scientific

method.
