Scientific Method


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:
  1. Purpose- What do you want to learn and find out?
  2. Research- Find out as much as you can about the topic.
  3. 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)
  4. Seeking Funds- This is to get money to be able to continue the research
  5. 4. Assess Profitability of Research-  help to find out if the  Research is  monetarily worth pursuing in the first place.
  6. Experiment- Design a test or procedure to confirm or disprove your hypothesis.
  7. Analysis- Record what happened during the experiment. Also known as ‘data’.
  8. 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.
