This is a much better representation of what occurs during the process of science. Therefore, the hypothesis is supported that this year's raspberries did not get enough rain.
(RI.11-12.7) CCR Anchor 4: Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
Present information, findings, and supporting evidence clearly, concisely, and logically such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, substance, and style are appropriate to purpose, audience, and task.
The scientific method is a series of steps followed by scientific investigators to answer specific questions about the natural world.
It involves making observations, formulating a hypothesis, and conducting scientific experiments.
It states the purpose of your experiment, the variables used, and the predicted outcome of your experiment.
It is important to note that a hypothesis must be testable.The hypothesis is a key component of the scientific process.A hypothesis is an idea that is suggested as an explanation for a natural event, a particular experience, or a specific condition that can be tested through definable experimentation.We can then make observations and comparisons between our controls and our independent variables (things that change in the experiment) to develop an accurate conclusion. The results are where you report what happened in the experiment.That includes detailing all observations and data made during your experiment.Most people find it easier to visualize the data by charting or graphing the information. The final step of the scientific method is developing a conclusion.This is where all of the results from the experiment are analyzed and a determination is reached about the hypothesis.Once you've made your observation, you must formulate a question about what you have observed.Your question should tell what it is that you are trying to discover or accomplish in your experiment.As science has evolved, we now know it is more cyclical than linear. This means that as an experiment is being performed following the steps of a scientific method, we can modify the setup after a set of results and do the experiment again.
