Scientific Method Observation/Research/Problem Hypothesis Experimentation Collection of data Analysis and conclusion Repeat
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/No –Greater/Lesser
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 experiment Then: the results of the experiment
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.
DATA: Rough/Raw: –This is disorganized lists, sketches… Smooth: –Data for each group is displayed separately in graphs and tables Analyzed: –Graphs and tables that compare your experimental group with your control group
Analysis and Conclusion These are often found together. Conclusion: –Based on experimental results the hypothesis is accepted/rejected. Analysis: –Brief discussion of results and why they lead you to accept or reject the hypothesis
