Scientific Method

The scientific method is a body of techniques for investigating the world, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting previous knowledge consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses.

The scientific method is an iterative process involving the following steps:

  1. Make observations

  2. Identify questions

  3. Formulate hypotheses. Develop testable predictions

  4. Conduct an experiment. Gather data to test predictions

  5. Analyze data

  6. Refine, alter, expand or reject hypothesis (either go on to 7 or go back to 3)

  7. Develop or alter general theories.
