The Scientific Method
The Scientific Method is an organized way of answering a science question. While different teachers and scientists have different versions of the Scientific Method, here are the typical six parts:
- Purpose- What do you want to learn and find out?
- Research- Find out as much as you can about the topic.
- Hypothesis- Try to predict the answer to the problem or future. Another term for a hypothesis is ‘educated guess’. This is usually stated like ” If I…(do something) then…(this will occur)
- Seeking Funds- This is to get money to be able to continue the research
- 4. Assess Profitability of Research- help to find out if the Research is monetarily worth pursuing in the first place.
- Experiment- Design a test or procedure to confirm or disprove your hypothesis.
- Analysis- Record what happened during the experiment. Also known as ‘data’.
- Conclusion- Review the data and check to see if your hypothesis was correct.
The scientific method is used all over the world every day to make new discoveries.
