    I believe that it is important to follow the steps of the Scientific Method because without it or the steps, it would be much harder to research something and improve humanity. No, I can't solve one of my own problems with the Scientific Method, because the Method is used for researching and hypotheses, where my problems would not be able to be researched, or a hypothesis written.

    If you don't follow the steps of the method it will make it difficult to find a solution to a problem that affects the whole world like cancer. Also if you don't follow the method you might get the wrong data which in term could kill someone.

    I think it is important to follow the steps of the Scientific Method. Without the steps, the process of creating a conclusion would be much harder. I could use the scientific method to solve one of my problems because it would help me create a hypotheses of what could be creating the problem, as well as a conclusion.

    It is important to use the scientific method for many reasons. One being it is an organized way to solve a problem. By using it you will not only solve your problem, but understand how you got your conclusion and why it worked. it also helps by giving you a order to do things in. This way you are never confused. You will always know what to do. I think I could use the scientific method to solve one of my problems because you can make a hypothesis and experiment with anything.

    It is important to use and follow the steps of the scientific method. As Mrs. Zazzali said in class, the scientific method can be used to solve problems as simple as opening a locker to something as complex as Global Warming. Yes, I can use the scientific method to solve my problems. For instance, if I want to be able to get from my locker to gym in a quick fashion, I may use the scientific method. I can then find the most efficient route to gym, and make it to and from my locker without being late. The scientific method is revolutionary and can definitely be used to solve my problems.

    The scientific method is a significant solution to use for everyday problems. This method can be a long but is an efficient way of solving tests, experiments, theories, etc. So for an example, I forgot my locker number. I can solve this by using the scientific method.

    1. Locker number lost.
    2. Think about what the combination might be. (maybe it was on a piece of paper that I maybe put in a folder I have now).
    3. Collect the numbers that might be correct to you.
    4. Check and right down the ones that did not work.
    5. Found out how you can not make that mistake before and
    the combinations for different things so you don't get confused

    You use the scientific method in everyday situations everyday. For example your making a cake the steps for the scientific method would be:

    1. Making a cake but don't know what the ingredients are.

    2.think about any other cakes you have made in the PAST WHAT WERE THE INGREDIENTS?

    3.Make a list of the things you just thought about.

    4. Buy the groceries bring them home and try to bake the cake until you found the right ingredients.

    5.Write down the recipe on a piece of paper and hang it on the fridge

    It is important to follow the steps of the Scientific Method because if you skip a step it could throw off your whole experiment. For example, if you skip Step 4(analyzing your results) you would not be able to draw a conclusion at the end of your experiment. Yes, I can use the Scientific Method to solve one of my own every day problems. For instance, I would be able to solve my problem of not being late picking up my sister. Everyday for one week I would take a different route to get to my sister. Each day I would time myself on how long it takes. At the end of the week I would analyze my results and decide that the shortest route is the one that I should take to pick up my sister.

    The scientific method is a way to solve a problem. Although you probably think you never used it, if you recall a problem that happened, you will discover that you used the scientific method. Everyone probably used it once a day if not multiple times. Here is a situation where you may have to use the scientific method.

    1.You are late for school.

    2.Try different things in to prevent being late.

    3.Recapping what you do you do before you usually go to school.

    4.Try to cut down on unnecessary things you do before school.

    5.Attach a note where you'll usually be to remind you to get ready early.

    The scientific method is extremely important when problem solving or doing an experiment. The scientific method helps you follow an order during problem solving. It can be used in many different ways such as figuring out a better route to get to your next class. First, decide what your problem is then make a hypothesis. Next, find all possible routes and experiment with which one works better. In the end, if your hypothesis was wrong make a new hypothesis.

    The scientific method is extremely crucial to the work of scientists.
    Without analyzing the problem the scientists may not even know what they have to write a hypothesis about and in which way they could benefit from their studies. Unfortunatley, this method can not help me solve any of my problems at school or home, in the sence that none of my problems are incorporated with science.

  45. JJ Period 2

    The scientific method is used to solve everyday problems. It is very helpful to use this method. You can make an hypothesis or prediction on what happens when you try something new. Next you analyze the results to see which is best. Finally you draw your conclusion on the end of the experiment.

    For example...

    Lets say you wanted to know the best way to get to a class on time.

    1. Find out what the problem is with late.

    2. Make a hypothesis of trying to find a way to get to class on time.
    3. Test your hypothesis by trying out your plan.

    4. Be sure to record your results to compare them.

    5. Finally you can draw your conclusion on the best way to get to class on time.

    The Scientific Method can be used to solve almost any problem, big and small. First you need to think of a problem. Then you experiment, refine the idea, and experiment more. After, you come to your final statement which is the conclusion to your problem. Without following these steps, your process would be ruined and your answer would most probably be incorrect.

  51. In class to day we learned what the scientific method is and wrote definitions of the type of science. The three types of sciences we learned were life science, Physical science and Earth science. If you didn’t know life science is the study of living things. Also physical science is the study of matter, energy, chemistry, physics, and astronomy. Earth science is the study of the earth, landforms, earthquakes, weather, rocks, minerals, and etc. The scientific method are steps you use to test a scientific problem. For example you use the scientific method to test if something floats or sinks. It is very important to use the scientific method and follow all of the steps to make sure you are accurate in your hypothesis.
