Presentation Transcript

Slide 1

Logical Method and Theory Dr. James Danoff-Burg Columbia University

Slide 2

Goals of science Describe the examples that are found in the normal world Explain designs This is the real accentuation of your individual venture Ditto for the majority of the exercises that we are doing in the class Scientific strategy is pertinent to numerous different parts of life

Slide 3

Methods of Explanation Approximately 11 Steps Process is rehashed ordinarily Can NEVER demonstrate a theory Can just reject many, abandoning one as best upheld by the information "Logical Proof" is a typical false notion

Slide 4

Hypotheses Null speculation The theory of no change Often truncated as H o Alternative theories Often shortened as H a , H b , and so on. All must be totally unrelated We acknowledge one if H o is factually dismisses Which H a to acknowledge is dictated by patterns in information

Slide 5

Scientific Method - Steps 1-5 O bserve or suspect example P osit importance of watched distinction C reate question to clarify design C reate testable theories D esign try

Slide 6

Scientific Method - Steps 6-11 Collect information (Descriptive stage) Analyze information, essentially utilizing measurements Evaluate speculations, dismiss H o ? Make conclusions in view of information Note issues in momentum work Predict future bearings for research

Slide 7

Parts of a logical report Title Abstract - a general rundown Introduction - foundation, address, H a s Methods - what we did Results - what we discovered, charts, compressed information Discussion - understandings, forecasts Acknowledgments - who helped us References - who we refered to

Slide 8

Scientific Communication Written report Traditional Oral introduction Commonly utilized for preparatory introduction of work to get input before composing it up Poster Visual synopsis of work - utilized at gatherings Web page Can utilize a composed report & make it intelligent

Slide 9

Individual Projects – Seven Parts to Design Question Null speculation & Alternative theories Independent variable(s) Dependent factors Desired information to gather Data accumulation technique Expected result with reasons in the matter of why you expect that
