How is the scientific method used to investigate the world around us?

Have you ever came across problems that you can’t solve? “ What happens if I do this?”. . .or maybe you just want to know what responds to the things you do. It all just starts with a question!

Scientists use a process called “ The Scientific Method ” to investigate why things happen the way they do. How do they do it?

How do they do it?

If we come across problems, the first thing we do is observe what the problem is right? Then, you can have a conclusion based on your observations. This is called an inference .

If you want, you can also do a basic research on your problem that you can apply to your method. Maybe you already knew something about the problem as well!

Now that you’ve observed and inferred, you can come up with a hypothesis ! It’s sort of like a prediction, but based on your inference. “If I do this…then this will happen.” So, how do you know if your hypothesis is correct?

So, how do you know if your hypothesis is correct?

It’s time to experiment ! In this part, you have to test if your hypothesis is correct. The results from an experiment will lead you to analyzing the data.

Based on your analysis, you can finally write a conclusion . Was your hypothesis correct? Why? All of these questions are answered in the conclusion.

The Scientific Method is a very important process to find out how things work the way they do. It is used today to discover the world around us. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to investigate things specifically.
