Scientific method

Scientific theory the most logical explanation for events that occur
Scientific law when a hypothesis survives many tests
Scientific method a systematic approach to problem solving
hypothesis an educated guess about a possible solution or answer to your problem or question (I think...)
experiment a test or trial performed in order to discover
variable something that can change the results of an experiment. There can only be 1 change in an experiment.
independent variable (cause) is the one thing that is changed in an experiment. It is what is being tested.
dependent variable (effect) is the change in response to the change or manipulation of another variable. it is the response that can be observed and measured
constants the parts of the experiment that are NOT changed. They are kept the same so as not to interfere with the experiment
control set up set up exactly like the experiment that contains the variable, but it does not contain the variable
experimental set up the set up that does contain the variable
procedure sequence of steps involved in performing an experiment
data recorded observations and measurements taken
conclusion the results or answer to the question
observation involves using the senses to examine what is happening
steps of the scientific method 1. state the problem or ask the question 2. gather information on the problem 3. form a hypothesis 4. do experiments to test the hypothesis 5. record and analyze data 6. state a conclusion 7. repeat the work
