The Scientific Method

Use it, it helps!

State the Problem

Before one can attempt to solve something, he must first properly identify the actual problem. How can you solve what you do not know? It is important to have a cause.

Form A Hypothesis

To form a hypothesis, one should come up with a plausible and logical "guess". This is the part that requires the most intelligence and creativity. This is the heart of the experiment and should be precise. However, this is not a failsafe and can be repeated. So don't sweat it, if you don't succeed the first time.

Form a Conclusion

After learning all of the information and data, it's time to form a conclusion! You decide what is true and what is not. Also, you need to determine if the hypothesis worked. This is it! Good work! You now know the scientific method, give yourself a pat on the back!
