Applications Of The Scientific Method

Applications Of The Scientific Method

The scientific method is useful in problem solving and decision-making in a wide variety of fields. In this assignment, you will demonstrate how to use the scientific method to make decisions and solve problems in your field of study or everyday life.

Identify a specific problem often faced in your field of study or everyday life. Research your problem and assess your data / research. 

 

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

 

1. Explain the scientific method and describe the overall manner in which you would apply it in your field of study or everyday life.

 

2. Propose one (1) testable hypothesis to explain / solve the problem you have selected. State the expected outcomes of your actions and include criteria for determining whether or not these actions would succeed. Note: Your hypothesis should be stated very precisely.

 

3. Describe the main actions that you intend to put into place to test the hypothesis that you proposed in Question 2. Describe the way in which you would evaluate the success of your program. Include the results that you would deem as a success and the results that would be considered a failure.

 

  1. Discuss the wisdom behind      the strategy you would use to test the hypothesis from Question 3, and      describe the additional steps you might take, depending on the results of      your test. Note: These additional      steps might be to revise your original hypothesis (if the results were      unsatisfactory) or to propose new hypotheses. The goal is to continuously      improve your understanding of the factors influencing your outcomes, to be      able to achieve greater results over time. 
  2. Use at least two (2)      quality resources / references in this assignment.
