[This post will also serve as an initial count of attendance for the college’s enrollment numbers. It is required that you post for this or you will be counted as absent from the first week or classes.]


Scientific method: Principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of knowledge involving the recognition and formulation of a problem, the collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.

There are variations on how scientists do their work.  Since there is more than one way scientists do their work, this is referred to as scientific methods.  The following are common features of how scientists do their work:
Observe – physical world, such as unexplained observation.

Question – make educated guess, a hypothesis, to explain observation.

Predict consequences that can be observed if hypothesis is correct (or consequences absent if hypothesis is incorrect).
Test Prediction perform experiment to see if consequences predicted are present.

Draw a conclusion Formulate general rule to organize hypothesis, predictions, and experimental findings.

(could include trial and error, experimentation without hypothesis, or accident).

Limitations Science cant explain everything.  Science applies to hypotheses that are testable.
