What is Inquiry? To inquire : To ask about To search into To seek for information by questioning To make an investigation

To inquire :

To ask about

To search into

To seek for information by questioning

To make an investigation

The Process of Inquiry A: Scientific inquiry is a multifaceted activity; the processes of science include the formulation of scientifically investigable questions, construction of investigations into those questions, the collection of appropriate data, the evaluation of the meaning of those data, and the communication of this evaluation.

The Process of Inquiry The processes of science include the formulation of scientifically investigable questions Can be answered using empirical evidence (measured, observed) Not all questions can be answered by science: Philosophy Religion Aesthetics

The processes of science include the formulation of scientifically investigable questions

Can be answered using empirical evidence (measured, observed)

Not all questions can be answered by science:

Philosophy

The Process of Inquiry construction of investigations into those questions, Design or planning of investigation (not always an experiment) Comparing outcomes Controlling variables Avoiding bias

construction of investigations into those questions,

Design or planning of investigation (not always an experiment)

Comparing outcomes

Controlling variables

Avoiding bias

The Process of Inquiry the collection of appropriate data , Do your investigation Record the data from: an experiment, a survey, a series of systematic observations other available sources

the collection of appropriate data ,

Do your investigation

Record the data from:

an experiment,

a survey,

a series of systematic observations

other available sources

The Process of Inquiry the evaluation of the meaning of those data, So what? Is it accurate? Reliable? (multiple trials) Does it answer the question? Does it support or not support the hypothesis?

the evaluation of the meaning of those data,

So what?

Is it accurate? Reliable? (multiple trials)

Does it answer the question?

Does it support or not support the hypothesis?

The Process of Inquiry and the communication of this evaluation. Make findings public Open for others to peer review Evaluate Replicate Build upon

and the communication of this evaluation.

Make findings public

Open for others to peer review

Evaluate

Replicate

Build upon

The Process of Inquiry B: The processes of science frequently do not correspond to the traditional portrayal of “the scientific method.” Not linear (steps don’t always follow one after the other) Sometimes no formal “if, then” hypothesis May not include an “experiment”; done by detailed observations, math, logic and reasoning. Could uses other people’s data

The Process of Inquiry C: Scientific argumentation is a necessary part of scientific inquiry and plays an important role in the generation and validation of scientific knowledge. Argue, debate or disagree supported by evidence and logic

Argue, debate or disagree supported by evidence and logic

The Process of Inquiry D: Scientific knowledge is based on observation and inference ; it is important to recognize that these are very different things. Not only does science require creativity in its methods and processes, but also in its questions and explanations.

The Process of Inquiry Observe: To be or become aware of, especially through careful and directed attention ; notice. To watch attentively: observe a child's behavior. To make a systematic or scientific observation: observe the phases of the moon.

The Process of Inquiry Inference: a. The act or process of deriving logical conclusions from premises known or assumed to be true. b. The act of reasoning from factual knowledge or evidence

Inference:

a. The act or process of deriving logical conclusions from premises known or assumed to be true.

b. The act of reasoning from factual knowledge or evidence

Reflection on the Process of Inquiry Provide examples of how you used the process of inquiry in your investigation. How was it a “multifaceted activity”? How did it differ from the traditional “scientific method”? How was argumentation used? How was your “science knowledge” based on observation and inference?
