Scientific Method

Critical Thinking (last 3 parts)
The path of Observation Observation-hypothesis-theory
Hypothesis an educated answer/guess to a question
Theory Hypothesis that has been tested many times that becomes our best current knowledge
Inductive Reasoning an observation used to create a hypothesis
Deductive Reasoning Applying a theory to a newly discovered hypothesis (ex. does the theory apply to this newly discovered species)
Prediction (in scientific method) how you are going to experiment and what the results should be- the data can either support or not support your hypothesis
3 types of Research Design (methodology) 1) Descriptive study 2) Experimental study 3) Predictive models- computer simulations
Descriptive Study strictly observatory- do not alter anything= correlational data
Experimental Study alter one variable at a time= demonstrates causal
Scientific Literature such as Journal Articles- communication and consensus (multiple people agree) must be peer-reviewed
