problems the first step in the scientific method is to define or identify the
conclusion what a scientist writes summarizing the results of an experiment
graphs visual aides used by scientists to communicate results of an experiment
science the methodological study of the natural world through experimentation and verification of facts
measure to determine the extent, quality or dimensions

pseudoscience a process of investigation that in one or more ways resembles science but deviates from the scientific method
empirical evidence the observations, measurements, and other types of data that people gather and test to support and evaluate scientific explanations
scientific theory a system of ideas that explains many related observations and is supported by a large body of evidence acquired through scientific investigation
