What is the definition of scientific method?
The systematic pursuit of knowledge involving a) the recognition and formulation of a problem b) the collection of data through observation and experiment, and c) the formulation and testing of a hypothesis.
1. Identify A Problem and Ask A Question
2. Make A Hypothesis
3. Test The Hypothesis (Design & Conduct Experiments)
4. Collect Data
5. Analyaze The Results
6. Draw Conclusions
7. Make Recommendations / Solutions.
Scientists generally publish the results of an experiment, so that other scientists can compare it to their results.
The Scientific method is the asking of a Question, then methodically trying to uncover the Answer with empirical research, experiments and data: the main purpose being the separation [by identification] of the Causes from the Effects. It also requires that similar experiments will yield the same results. A method of using number to determine whether evidence is reliable is called scientific method.
The scientific method is important in scientific investigation because it helps to test predictions (hypotheses). The scientific method has been very effective in advancing scientific knowledge. Scientists have learned a tremendous amount about our universe, by making use of it. Therefore, the scientific method has proved its value.
