9 We are all born as scientists and do the scientific method innately. As an example, we will walk through a more adult experience, and see how your natural reactions to the situation include almost instant application of multiple cycles of the scientific method!

13 A friend of yours calls to say that his car would not start this morning. He asks for your help. You tell him the battery must be dead, and that if so, then jump-starting the car from a good battery should solve the problem. In doing so, you are _____.summarizing observations about why the car won’t start.stating a scientific theory for why the car won’t start.offering a specific hypothesis and associated prediction to explain why the car won’t start.performing an experimental test of a hypothesis for why the car won’t start.Answer: C
14 How does the word theory in science differ from its use in everyday English? There is no difference—the usages are interchangeable.A scientific theory is always right and never changes.Scientific theories are testable explanations, not speculative guesses.A scientific theory can be confirmed by a single experiment designed to prove its accuracy.Answer: C
15 Observations: Figure 1-11 Page 13-14 Wild chilies produce fruits that contain seeds.Cactus mice are seed eaters.Curve-billed thrashers are fruit eaters.
