Scientific Method

Scientists solve different problems all of the time, to make their problem solving
easier they use the scientific method. The scientific method is a procedure of six steps
they are stating the problem, collecting information, forming a hypothesis, preformiong
experiments, analyzing the data, and making a conclusion.
The first step to the scientific method is to stat the problem in which you wish to
anwser. You can do this by asking a clear, amwserable question.
The second step is collecting information on the question anwsered. You have to
make observations and study the things on the question so you have more knowledge on
the problem.
After collectiong the information, scientists then form a hypothesis, or educated
guess, on what the solution may be. A hypothesis may be very simple and limited and
may be braod and complex depending on the situation.
After forming a hypothesis, scientists then preform experiments to test it. In an
experiment there is two almost idnetical set ups, but one contains a variable which is the
thing being tested.
Scientists then record and analyze the data gained from their experiments. They
record the data by making graphs and charts.
The final step is forming a conclusion. Depending on the results of the
experiments the scientists either accept their hypothesis or reject it. After many
experiments are formed they state conclusion.
