Using a scientific approach

Post by Spirit-Being on August 6th 2009, 12:55 am

  • The scientific method is a way to ask and answer scientific questions by making observations and doing experiments.
  • The steps of the scientific method are to:
    o Ask a Question
    o Do Background Research
    o Construct a Hypothesis
    o Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment
    o Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion
    o Communicate Your Results

  • It is important for your experiment to be a fair test. A "fair test" occurs when you change only one factor (variable) and keep all other conditions the same.


I use this method when editing html and css codes when working on web pages i change a part of it see if it works and i continue to experiment until i can find the solution.

I don't think that the results need be communicated. Often they are not.
A problem is that the 'conclusions' are far from definite/ultimate and so lead to new "questions", with the cycle repeating 'endlessly' in a spiralling loop....

QM has shown us that this is, actually, not possible.

Have you used a scientific approach in your life at any time?
Most of it.
