Presentation Transcript

  1. Notes: Thinking Like a Scientist Copy all underlined parts. Read pgs. 6-12. Objective: Know how to use inference, prediction, and classification.

  2. What is Science? • Science is learning about the natural world through observation and experimentation.

  3. Science Skills • Scientists use skills such as observing, inferring, predicting, and classifying to learn about the world. Video

  4. Observing • Observing is using one or more of your senses to gather information. • Your five senses are site, smell, hearing, taste, and touch.

  5. Observing • How much of this picture will you be able to remember? Video

  6. Types of Observations • There are two types of observations: • Quantitative • Qualitative

  7. Quantitative • Quantitative observations deal with numbers and amounts. • How many squares?

  8. Qualitative • Qualitative observations are descriptions that can’t be expressed by numbers. • Color • Shape • Features

  9. Inferring • Inferring is explaining or interpreting your observations. • Inferences aren’t guesses, they are based on reason.

  10. Inferring • What can you infer from this picture? Video

  11. Predicting • Predicting means making a forecast of what will happen in the future based on past experience or evidence.

  12. Predicting Video

  13. Classifying • Classifying is the process of grouping together items that are alike in some way.

  14. Classifying • Put these organisms into categories. Video

  15. Making Models • Making models involves creating representations of complex objects or processes.

  16. Making Models • Models help people study and understand things that are complex or that can’t be observed directly.
