  1. How Do Scientists Do It?

  2. Types of Science • Physical Science • Physics: The study of energy and motion • Chemistry: The study of matter and stuff that happens to it • Matter = Everything • Biology • Study of living things

  3. What type of science is this?

  4. What do you want to be? • List your top 3 choices for what you want to be when you grow up • Identify any parts of science that are involved for each

  5. Observing • Observing = Using the 5 senses to collect data • Data = Information • Qualitative = Observation using characteristics • Quantitative = Observation of HOW MANY

  6. Make a qualitative and quantitative observation…

  7. One more time…

  8. Chemistry is the study of... iRespond Question Multiple Choice F 1022D4B3-DEC1-0C47-9332-1255A147FB5A A.) matter and the stuff that happens to it B.) energy and how it is used C.) movement and how it is viewed D.) elephants E.)

  9. You hear the bell ring four times. What type of observation is this? iRespond Question Multiple Choice F 48377639-8CA6-FB4F-83CD-B5B5CCE1BD4D A.) Qualitative Observation B.) Quantitative Observation C.) Nonsense Observation D.) Useless Observation E.)

  10. Physics is the study of... iRespond Question Multiple Choice F 177C681D-A8DC-F84B-BBD3-D341952DB9DF A.) Energy and Motion B.) Albert Einstein C.) Living Things D.) Fish E.)

  11. Which of these would NOT be useful in making an observation? iRespond Question Multiple Choice F 5D69D9A8-B8ED-8140-89BF-64D16C005D3C A.) Your eyes B.) Your ears C.) Your X-Box D.) Your tongue E.)

  12. Which of these job would MOST require you to know a lot about PHYSICS? iRespond Question Multiple Choice F 9FDA1688-D3A5-3442-BF66-4D75A5B64786 A.) Chef B.) Roller coaster maker C.) Doctor D.) Lawyer E.)

  13. Guessing • Prediction = Guess about what is going to happen (WHAT) • Inferring = Guess about why something happened (WHY) • Hypothesis = Guess about how to solve a problem (HOW)

  14. Make a Prediction and Inference…

  15. Analyzing Data • Classifying = Grouping data or items that are alike • Evaluating = Using math to analyze data • Making Models = Creating a graph, or make a copy that is easier to examine than the real thing

  16. Classify

  17. Evaluate

  18. Make A Model • Insert iRespond Question here

  19. Making a Model On a scale of 1-5, how have you enjoyed your time in PVMS so far? iRespond Question Multiple Choice F 21CAAFEB-9F4F-C34D-B061-7AF75F52C52A A.) 1 B.) 2 C.) 3 D.) 4 E.) 5 =)

  20. 1) Find a problem you want to solve or question you want to answer 2) Research the problem 3) Make a hypothesis 4) Design an Experiment 5) Collect Data 6) Analyze Data 7) Make a Conclusion 8) Communicate Results Scientific Method (Inquiry)
