3 The scientific method The scientific method Steps in the scientific method The process you use to figure out what is wrong with your car is an example of the scientific method. As you try to fix your car, you ask yourself questions (Is there any gas? Is the battery dead?) and formulate ideas (or hypotheses) about what is wrong. By testing your ideas, you are experimenting and collecting data. You may be able to use this data to fix the car. Even if you conclude that the car can t be fixed, you have learned information to use the next time you are faced with a similar problem. Table 1.2 shows the steps of the scientific method. Table 1.2: Steps in the scientific method Step Example 1 Ask a question. Why doesn t the car start? 2 Formulate a hypothesis. Maybe the battery is dead. 3 Design and conduct an experiment. Turn the lights on to test the battery. 4 Collect and analyze data. The lights go on. 5 Make a tentative conclusion. Battery is OK. 6 Test conclusion, or if necessary, refine the question, and go through each step again. Are the ignition wires loose or wet? Figure 1.7: Science is a process of collecting information through observation and experiment. The information is used to solve problems and test ideas about how things work. 9

5 Designing experiments Start with a good question Identify all the factors when designing experiments Variables Change one thing at a time Control variables and experimental variables Will a car roll faster down a steeper hill? This is a good research question because we can test it with an experiment. We could set up ramps at different angles and measure the speeds of cars as they roll down the ramp. Once you have a good question, you can design an experiment to help you find the answer. Suppose you find that a car on a steep ramp rolls faster than a car on a ramp at a lower angle. Can you say that your experiment proves steeper ramps make cars go faster? Maybe, and maybe not. Before you can design a good experiment, you must identify all the factors that affect how fast the car moves down the ramp. Maybe you pushed the car on one ramp. Maybe one car was heavier than another. Your observation of higher speed because the angle was steeper could be correct. Or, the speed could be higher for another reason, like a push at the start. Factors that affect the results of an experiment are called variables.you can think about variables in terms of cause and effect. The weight of the car is one variable that may have an effect on the speed of the car. Some other variables are the angle of the ramp and how far down the ramp you measure the speed. When you can identify more than one variable that could affect the results of your experiment, it is best to change only one variable at a time. For example, if you change both the weight of the car and the angle of the ramp, you won t know which of the two variables caused your speed to change. If you want to test the effect of changing the angle, keep ALL the other variables the same. The variable that you change is called the experimental variable. The variables that you keep the same are called control variables. When you change one variable and control all of the others, we call it a controlled experiment. Controlled experiments are the preferred way to get reliable scientific evidence. If you observe that something happens (like the car goes faster), you know why it happened (because the ramp was steeper). There is no confusion over which variable caused the change. Figure 1.8: Variables that affect a car rolling down a ramp. 11
