9 SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY VOCABULARY Scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on gathering observable, empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. A scientific method consists of the collection of data through observation and experimentation, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.
11 SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY VOCAB. THEORYA____________is a broad and comprehensive statement of what is believed to be true, supported by considerable experimental evidence resulting from many tests of related hypotheses.A _______________ is a proposed explanation for an observation.A_______________________is an question whose result can be determined scientifically through experimentation. Usually the reason or motivation for performing a lab.A__________________ is an answer, proposition or resolution based on prior knowledge, observation, inference, or the evidence and data gathered in an experiment. What you learned from the experiment!HYPOTHESISTESTABLE QUESTIONCONCLUSION
12 In science, _______________ is the process of acquiring information through your senses or specialized recording equipment, and the accumulation of this data through experimentation. This ___________is used to support or demonstrate the fact that something is true.____________ is a type of observation that based on describing what is going on in the experiment (ie. The car is blue). Whereas _____________ is a type of observation or data that involves measurements, amounts, or numbers.___________The act of deriving a logical conclusion from an observation.OBSERVATIONEVIDENCEQUALITATIVEQUANTITATIVEINFERENCE
13 A___________________________ is a set of procedures through which you control all variables except for one.The _______________________ is a factor in an experiment that is changed ON PURPOSE by those who are conducting that experiment. It is usually plotted on the x-axis of a graph. On the other hand, the ____________________ is a factor in an experiment that changes depending on what happens to the other factors in an experiment. It is usually plotted on the y-axis of a graph.A __________ is something that stays the same throughout an experiment. In many cases, time is used.CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTINDEPENDENT VARIABLEDEPENDENT VARIABLECONSTANT
