2 “The Scientific Method” Scientific TheoriesExplanation of complex events based on scientific observation.Could change over time as more tests are performed.ExamplesEinstein’s Theory of RelativityQuantum Theory
3 “The Scientific Method” Scientific LawsStatement of scientific fact that always seems to be true.These are often used in the formation of more complex theories.ExamplesLaw of GravityLaw of Conservation of MassNewton’s Laws of Motion
4 Science In The “Real” World Theories are constantly being tested by groups of scientists to improve their validity.This means at any given time there may be a minority of scientists may challenge parts of theory they think may be false…Welcome To InQuest!!!
