1.) What is the Scientific Method? The Scientific Method is a set of steps scientists follow to answer questions & solve problems.
2.) What does it mean to State the Question? (1st Step) State the Questions by explaining the purpose of doing the experiment & why you want to know the information. Write the purpose in question form to identify the problem the experiment will solve.
3.) How does a scientist Collect Information? (2nd Step) Scientists collect information by conducting Preliminary Research from different resources that will help them answer the question, so they can form a hypothesis.
4.) How does a Scientist form a Hypothesis? (3rd Step) Scientists use the information they learned from their Preliminary Research to make an educated guess & prediction of the outcome of the experiment.
5.) What is a Scientific Prediction? If/Then statement that explains cause & effect and can be used to verify a hypothesis.
6.) How does a Scientist Test a Hypothesis? (4th Step) = Scientists test their hypothesis by creating an experiment with a constant and a variable, which will determine if their hypothesis is correct or incorrect.
7.) What are constants and variables?

- A constant is a factor that stays the same.

- A variable is a factor that changes.

8.) What is a Controlled Experiment? An experiment that tests only 1 factor at a time.
9.) What is a factor? Anything in an experiment that can change the experiment results.
10.) What is meant by Experiment Materials? A list of items needed to perform the experiment. (Like a Grocery Shopping List)
11.) What is meant by Experiment Procedure? A list of steps to be carefully followed when conducting the experiment. (Like a Recipe)
12.) How do Scientists Observe? They watch the experiment very closely, paying great attention all details.
13.) How do Scientists Record & Study Data? Data is recorded in written & picture form. Data is organized into tables and graphs and then analyzed.
14.) What is data? Recorded observations during an experiment. (Written information, photos, illustrations, or measurements.)
15.) How should data be recorded?

= Organized in Data Tables.

-Measurements should be graphed.

16. Why does a Scientist Draw Conclusions?

= Scientists draw conclusions to determine if their hypothesis is correct or incorrect based on the data, results, and analysis of the experiment.

- Thye also discuss mistakes improvements, what they learned and experiment importance.
