Science and the Scientific Method
schmied/reid©2015 all rights reserved
How do scientists know what they know? That's a pretty big question. Especially considering that scientists have to face the unknown every time an experiment is done. What scientists do is follow a process.
To help keep things standard across the world of science, scientists have agreed to follow the same basic process. That's the Scientific Method, or as WA State says, the Investigative Process.
The process will seem a bit rigid at first. However as you get more adept in this process, you will find out the process is very fluid, but retains the basic core that you are taught in this unit.
