The scientific method would be described as involving a series of prescribed steps that have been established over centuries of scholarship. Describing the steps of the scientific method you first have to ask a question. The scientific method starts when you ask a question about something that you observe. Then you would do a background research. Rather than starting from scratch in putting together a plan for answering your question, you want to be a savvy scientist using library and internet research to help you find the best way to do things and insure that you don’t repeat mistakes from the past. Then construct a hypothesis. A hypothesis is an educated guess about how things work. You must state your hypothesis in a way that you can easily measure. Your hypothesis should be constructed in a way to help you answer your original question. You’ll need to test your hypothesis by doing an experiment. Your experiment tests whether your hypothesis is true or false. You conduct a fair test by making sure that you change only one factor at a time while keeping all other conditions the same.You should also repeat your experiments several times to make sure that the first results weren’t just an accident. Analyze your data and draw a conclusion. Once your experiment is complete, you collect your measurements and analyze them to see if your hypothesis is true or false. Last, you communicate your results. To complete your project you will communicate your results to others in a final report and/or a display board. Pretty much all these would fit into my career as a CSI (crime scene investigator) I would have to observe, predict and come to a conclusion. Pretty interesting. I would have to also use this as a student now if I have any projects.
