Scientific Method

SCIENTIFIC METHOD

I. Introduction

What is a Scientific Method?

The Scientific Method is a process used to

systematically investigate observations,

solve problems, and test test a hypothesis.

The Scientific Method helps scientists ensure

that their theories are true by testing their hypotheses.

The scientific method is a  process used not only by scientists but also people in the community in order to come up with accurate and reliable answers to problems. It is a process of experimenting and testing possible answers in order to verify the real answer or conclusion.

IV. Uses of Scientific Method

Scientists always use the scientific method to verify their hypotheses and draw conclusions. However, ordinary people use it wittingly or unwittingly to solve problems in their daily existence.

AT HOME

  • Used to solve common house problems:

> finding missing object

Scientific method is not limited to experimentations and testing inside a laboratory. It can also be used in any seemingly trivial problems, like a finding a missing object. Using the scientific method in looking for missing objects would make the search easier.

> house pest control

House pests like rats and cockroaches are unwanted visitors in any household. One can use the scientific method to get rid of them. A homeowner must first determine the most common targets of these pests, then think of best way to get rid of them. This may require several attempts–or experiments–until the homeowners stumble upon the most effective and most efficient method of solving his or her pesky problem.

> removing stains and dirts

The scientific method is applied by the homeowner who thinks of ways to remove stains on clothes and experiments which one of the many options is the best way.

  • Used in cooking

Cooking is a daily household activity that is not easy to do. It requires a good deal of thinking and experimenting. Since members of the family always demand for new foods to satisfy their palate, the cook of the house must think of the best-tasting recipe without spending too much for ingredients. This process uses scientific method.

IN THE COMMUNITY

  • Solving crimes

The increasing number of crimes nowadays make the police investigators the busiest practitioners of the scientific method. Every crime requires them to gather evidence, study them closely, come up with possible scenarios, determine suspects and recreate the events of the crime. All these in order to come up with truth that will determine the faith of everyone involved in the crime.

  • Advertising

Advertisers use scientific method extensively. When advertising or preparing new products, advertisers research on the best possible content of their message so that it will draw the interest of the public.

They experiment on what features and animations to use in order to convince consumers that the product or products are the ones they should buy.

  • Making new products

In making a new product, the inventor definitely uses scientific method. They think of the most common needs of the community in the present and in the future. But before making the product available to the public, they must test it for safety. Only after a conclusion is reached that the product is safe and consumable that it becomes commercialized.

IN DIFFERENT SUBJECT AREAS

  • Used in an experimenting activity

At school, teachers try to give assignments, like an investigatory project, that require the use of scientific methods. Students who have mastered the use of scientific method are likely to get good grades, while those who do not are likely to fail the assignment. .

  • Used in solving Mathematical Problems

When a mathematician attempts to create a theorem, he tries to find out what would be the best formula for the problem. After composing the formula (hypothesis), a mathematician perform experiments and compare the results.

Hence, the hypothesis that gets the best result or conclusion is judged to be the best answer to the question.

Even in simple things, people apply the scientific method. Although each one has his or her own process, we, as rational beings, try the scientific method at one time or another to solve a problem.

We do not need to be scientists to come up with a correct conclusion or to do a perfect experiment. Even scientists make mistakes sometimes. But we must try to be scientific in solving problems because more often than not, their method produce the best results. We must emulate their patience and their objectivity and humility in admitting failure whenever an experiment did not result in our desired conclusion.

We must always seek the truth; we must not settle for an imagined “truth.”

Camp Blog Experience

Last summer days, last summer nights…It was my last hot summert days for year 2009 and I was able to enjoy it by joining this event, the “Camp Blog Workshop-Training”. Though the schedule was very hectic that I need to wake up early in the morning, the feeling of being able to learn new things made me push through. It was a very good experience. Being able to meet new friends and being able to learn new things. It was the best summer classes I ever had.
