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.

Scientific Method
1. Bikini Bottom Experiments

The Bikini Bottom gang loves science class and wanted to do a little research. Read the
description for each experiment and use your knowledge of the scientific method to answer
the questions.

(1) Flower Power


SpongeBob loves to garden and wants to grow lots of pink flowers for his pal Sandy. He
bought a special Flower Power fertilizer to see if it will help plants produce more flowers.
He plants two plants of the same size in separate containers with the same amount of
potting soil. He places one plant in a sunny window and waters it every day with fertilized
water. He places the other plant on a shelf in a closet and waters it with plain water every
other day.

a. What did SpongeBob do wrong in this experiment? Explain.

SpongeBob did not provide both plants with the same amount of water and sunshine. In order to
test the fertilizer correctly, both plants should have been placed in the sunny window and watered
every day with the same amount of water. The only difference between the two plants should
have been the fertilizer one plant would be watered with the water with fertilizer and the other
would be watered with plain water.

b. What should SpongeBob do to test the effectiveness of Flower Power fertilizer?

In order to test the effectiveness of the fertilizer, SpongeBob needs to keep the plants (both) in the
same sunny location plus water them the same amount of water every day. The only thing that
should be different is the fertilizer.

Problem: Will the special flower fertilizer help plants produce more flowers?

Hypotheses:
1. My first hypothesis was:
He plants two plants of the same size in separate containers with the same amount of potting soil.

2. The second hypotheses was:
He places one plant in a sunny window and waters it every day with fertilized water.

3. The third was:


He places the other plant on a shelf in a closet and waters it with plain water every other day.

Test the hypotheses/Experiments:


✔ Plants need water to grow. Without water, the plants will die.

Gather Data/Interpret the Data:


Conclusion: / Report the findings.
