Process of Science

Develop a hypothesis, design and conduct appropriate experiments.  

  • When presented with an experimental observation, develop a testable and falsifiable hypothesis
  • Given a hypothesis, identify the appropriate experimental observations and controllable variables
  • Accurately make up and use appropriate volumes of reagents and perform the required experiments 

Analyze and interpret data using appropriate quantitative modeling and simulation tools.

  • Use averages and standard deviations to relate the significance of experimentally obtained data
  • Use appropriate equations to analyze experimental data and obtain parameters
  • Use equations and models to predict outcomes of experiments
