Whether you think of yourself as an up and coming scientist or not, you use science every day. You will explore how you apply different aspects of science in your daily life in a two part project. In 1,000-words, discuss the following:
The Scientific Method
Each and every day, you are faced with having to make split-second decisions, and the need to solve random problems that you encounter. To reach those decisions and work those problems out you are subconsciously using the scientific method. Apply the steps of the Scientific Method to two situations that could occur in your everyday life. Use the scientific method in the first scenario provided by your instructor to solve the problem at hand.
Please come up with a second detailed scenario on your own, using the categories provided, and follow the same steps in the scientific method to find a resolution.
For both scenarios, be sure to use terminology from the scientific method (hypothesis, experiment, etc.) while describing how you would address each problem.
Scenario 1: Read the course announcements to find out the assigned scenario for your project.
Scenario 2: Develop your own detailed problem and apply the scientific method to solve it. Your problem should fall within one of the assigned categories provided by your instructor within the course announcements.
Your final project should be a minimum of 1,000-words written in APA style format. As always, be sure to provide appropriate citations, references, and links to any information you use in this paper. Be sure to also avoid copying and pasting large sections of text from any given source.
As part of your final project, you are required to analyze two scenarios using the scientific method. Please see the first scenario below:
You arrive home for work or school after a very long day. You enter your home and attempt to turn on the lights (by the light switch) but nothing happens. Use the scientific method to troubleshoot why your lights might not come on.
Be sure to follow EACH step of the scientific method when analyzing this scenario. If you have any questions, please let me know.
