Types of sciences include:
Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science
Essential characteristics of science=
development of explanations
Process rooted in
unbiased observations and experimentation
Science relies on
an explanation of a natural phenomenon supported by many observations and experiments over time
2 most important biology theories:
Cell theory, theory of evolution
Both theories are based on
countless observations and investigations, have extensive supporting evidence, and enable accurate predictions.
Judging someones character or personality based on physical features.
areas if study that try to imitate science, often driven by cultural or commercial goals.
Pseudoscience do not provide
science-based explanations of the natural world
Research results in a constant reevaluation...
of what is known which often leads to new knowledge that scientists then evaluate.
Scientists welcome debate about one anothers ideas to
validate their experiments
Sciences advance by
accommodating new informations as it is discovered
Observations of data that are not consistent with current scientific understanding
are of interest to scientists
inconsistencies lead to
All scientists use
standard experimental procedures to come to a conclusion
experimental practices and results are evaluated by other scientist.
Scientists use the same measurement
system to repeat another experiements
applies science to legal interest
Basic understanding of science and its processes with reasoning and thinking skills.
