THE SCIENTIST STATES A QUESTION OR PROBLEM
The problem or research question is the single most important part of the scientific method. The research question is sometimes formed as a statement and is called the "Problem" or "Problem Statement."
THE SCIENTIST FORMS A HYPOTHESIS, OR ASSUMPTION, ABOUT THE PROBLEM
THE SCIENTIST DESIGNS AND CONDUCTS AND EXPERIMENT TO TEST THE HYPOTHESIS
THE SCIENTIST MEASURES THE DATA, OR INFORMATION, PRODUCED BY THE EXPERIMENT AND RECORDS THE RESULTS
THE SCIENTIST ANALYZES THE DATA TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE HYPOTHESIS IS CORRECT
