1 SCIENCE An organized way of studying things and finding answers to questions.

2 TYPES OF SCIENCE Each type of science is given a name to describe what is being studied.

3 TYPES OF SCIENCE Life science Life science Physical science Physical science Earth science Earth science Space science Space science Studies plants, animals, and other living things Studies energy, matter, and chemistry Studies the processes that shape the Earth The study of all things in the universe

4 TYPES OF SCIENCE

5 SCIENTIFIC METHOD Organized method used to solve problems and answer questions

6 STATE THE PROBLEM Ask a question Ask a question What are you trying to solve? What are you trying to solve? Which color Life Saver dissolves the fastest?

7 GATHER INFORMATION Think about your own experiences with this topic Think about your own experiences with this topic Do research Do research Who else studied this and what did they find out Who else studied this and what did they find out It has been my experience that I eat the green Life Savers faster than any other color

8 FORM A HYPOTHESIS Make an educated guess Make an educated guess What do you think is going to happen? What do you think is going to happen? I think the green Life Saver will dissolve faster than any other color. I also think that purple will last the longest.

9 DESIGN AND PERFORM AN EXPERIMENT A set of steps to follow to test the hypothesis A set of steps to follow to test the hypothesis Observe and record all information Observe and record all information Be sure to identify the controls and variables Be sure to identify the controls and variables 1. give each test subject a different color Life Saver 2. each test subject puts the Life Saver in their mouths at the same time 3. record the time it takes for the candy to dissolve

10 CONTROLS AND VARIABLES CONTROLS CONTROLS The standard to which the outcome of a test is compared The standard to which the outcome of a test is compared What you measure against What you measure against VARIABLES Something in an experiment that can change The color of the Life Saver

11 ANALYZE THE DATA Determine what the data means Determine what the data means Make graphs and data tables Make graphs and data tables

12 DRAW A CONCLUSION A logical answer to a question based on data and observations A logical answer to a question based on data and observations My data does not support my hypothesis, I said the green Life Saver would dissolve the fastest but the white one did. The purple Life Saver did last the longest.

13 If the hypothesis is supported The experiment needs to be repeated several more times The experiment needs to be repeated several more times The results need to be shared with the scientific community The results need to be shared with the scientific community

14 If the hypothesis is not supported The results need to be shared with the scientific community The results need to be shared with the scientific community The hypothesis needs to be revised and tested again The hypothesis needs to be revised and tested again
