1 Scientific Method Observation/Research/Problem Hypothesis ExperimentationCollection of dataAnalysis and conclusionRepeat
2 Problem: Always the toughest part!! Written in the form of a question.All research will be focused on finding an answer to the question.The Answer to the problem should have only one answer, for example,Yes/NoGreater/Lesser
3 Hypothesis Written as an “IF…… THEN…” statement. For example: If plants are denied light for two months than they will die.If: the action of the experimentThen: the results of the experiment
4 Experimentation: The experiment must be a controlled experiment. -Control group (Compare results to)-At least one experimental group (contains the experimental variable)There should be at least 10 subjects in each group or it should be repeated on one subject 10 times.
5 DATA: Rough/Raw: Smooth: Analyzed: This is disorganized lists, sketches…Smooth:Data for each group is displayed separately in graphs and tablesAnalyzed:Graphs and tables that compare your experimental group with your control group
6 Analysis and Conclusion These are often found together.Conclusion:Based on experimental resultsthe hypothesis is accepted/rejected.Analysis:Brief discussion of results and why they lead you to accept or reject the hypothesis
