1 “The Scientific Method” State The Problem Gather Information Form Hypothesis Test Hypothesis Analyze Data Conclusion Does NOT Support Hypothesis Conclusion DOES Support Hypothesis Modify and Retest Repeat to form a theory

2 “The Scientific Method” Scientific Theories Scientific Theories Explanation of complex events based on scientific observation. Explanation of complex events based on scientific observation. Could change over time as more tests are performed. Could change over time as more tests are performed. Examples Examples  Einstein’s Theory of Relativity  Quantum Theory

3 “The Scientific Method” Scientific Laws Scientific Laws Statement of scientific fact that always seems to be true. Statement of scientific fact that always seems to be true. These are often used in the formation of more complex theories. These are often used in the formation of more complex theories. Examples Examples  Law of Gravity  Law of Conservation of Mass  Newton’s Laws of Motion

4 Science In The “Real” World Theories are constantly being tested by groups of scientists to improve their validity. 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!!!
