EXAMPLE OF SCIENTIFIC METHOD

Missing items

Whenever something is missing, the very first thing most of us do is shout instead of look
for the missing object. There is a more effective way to deal with this problem–the
scientific method.

✔ Let’s say I have a problem: My wallet is missing. How could I use the scientific
method to solve this problem?

AT HOME

Problem: Missing wallet

Hypothesis:
1.My first hypothesis was: I lost it in the market while we were buying goods.
2.The second hypothesis was: Mae Ann got my wallet.
3.The third was: I had misplaced it in the house.

Test the hypothesis/Experiments: I searched all over the house for my wallet, but I could
not find it. Then I went to Mae Ann to ask If she got my wallet. She answered in the
affirmative. She said she found it while she was on her way home near the market.

Gather Data/Interpret the Data: I went to the market to buy some goods with my friend
Mae Ann. When I reached home, I noticed that my wallet was gone.

Conclusion:/ Report the findings. I lost my wallet in the market and Mae Ann found it
and gave it back to me.
