WHAT IS THE NATURE OF SCIENCE? If you don't mind read the total article which is posted at my site for you. There is additionally a PPT rundown posted at my site for you. Kindly utilize it for your exam audits.

Slide 3

THIS IS THE SCIENTIFIC WORLD VIEW The Universe Is Understandable. The Universe Is a Vast Single System In Which the Basic Rules Are Everywhere the Same. Logical Ideas Are Subject To Change. Logical Knowledge Is Durable. Science Cannot Provide Complete Answers to All Questions.

Slide 4

WHAT IS THE NATURE OF SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY? Certain elements of science make it particular as a method for comprehension the world/universe Those elements are particularly normal for the work of expert researchers, however anybody can utilize them to contemplate numerous parts of regular daily existence

Slide 5

Science Demands Evidence The legitimacy of logical cases is settled by alluding to perceptions of marvels Therefore, researchers focus on getting precise information

Slide 6

THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD Observe and depict a wonder or gathering of marvels. Plan theories to clarify the marvels; speculations frequently appear as a proposed causal instrument or scientific relationship. Utilize the speculations to anticipate the presence or activities of other wonders, or to foresee quantitatively the consequences of new perceptions. Play out extra information accumulation or rehash trial of the forecasts by a few free experimenters utilizing appropriately performed systems or tests.

Slide 7

THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD Observations/Data ➔ Hypotheses ➔ Hypothesis Testing ➔ Models ➔ Laws ➔ Theories eventually in time, every stage must be accounted for to the bigger academic group by presentations or distributions.

Slide 8

THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD The logical strategy does not permit any theory to be demonstrated valid. Speculations can be disproven, in which case that theory is dismisses as false. A theory which withstands a test intended to adulterate it sets up a level of likelihood that the speculation precisely clarifies information and can be utilized for further forecasts, subject to further tests.

Slide 9

Hypothesis Testing

Slide 10

SCIENTIFIC LAWS AND THEORIES A Scientific Theory is a clarification of a set or arrangement of related perceptions or occasions based upon demonstrated speculations and confirmed various times by separated gatherings of impartial analysts. (One researcher can't make a hypothesis; s/he can just make speculations.)

Slide 11

SCIENTIFIC LAWS AND THEORIES A s a consequence of our trust in the Scientific strategy, both logical laws and logical hypotheses are acknowledged to be "genuine" (exact) by established researchers all in all. A logical law or a logical hypothesis is utilized to make expectations of occasions or connections among information sets.

Slide 12

SCIENTIFIC LAWS AND THEORIES The greatest distinction between a law and a hypothesis is that a hypothesis is considerably more mind boggling and element. A law administers a solitary activity or circumstance, while a hypothesis clarifies a whole gathering of related wonders. (Mendel's Laws versus Darwin's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection) [Note: Evolution is a Fact; Darwin's Theory is the logically acknowledged clarification for the fact(s) of evolution.]

Slide 13

SCIENTIFIC LAWS AND THEORIES Genuine logical speculations must be falsifiable by method for extra use of the logical technique (information gathering and speculation testing). On the off chance that one can't envision a particular examination or investigation, in light of forecasts from the hypothesis, prompting to results which can facilitate confirm or discredit the expectations, then the hypothesis, as a clarification, is not logical.

Slide 14

SCIENTIFIC LAWS AND THEORIES By the time established researchers acknowledges a Law or Theory, it speaks to the best comprehension of the clarifications for the propertied of a given framework by then. A Scientific Theory speaks to our best comprehension of "reality" about some part of the universe, despite the fact that it is not demonstrated as total is still comprehended to be liable to future amendment, or even to dismissal.

Slide 15

THE EXPERIMENTAL METHOD The Experimental Method is generally viewed as the most logical of all strategies, the "strategy for decision." The fundamental issue with all other non-exploratory techniques is less control over the circumstance and its segments. The Experimental Method is a method for attempting to beat this issue of control.

Slide 16

THE EXPERIMENTAL METHOD An investigation is an investigation of circumstances and end results. It contrasts from non-test techniques in that it includes the ponder control of one variable , while attempting to keep every single other variable steady. Tests must be appropriately outlined and incorporate controls.

Slide 18

HYPOTHESIS GENERATION The utilization of rationale and the nearby examination of confirmation are essential however not normally adequate for the headway of science. Logical ideas don't rise naturally from information or from any measure of investigation alone. Concocting speculations or hypotheses to envision how the world functions and after that making sense of how they can be put under a magnifying glass of the truth is an inventive point of view .

Slide 19

SCIENCE EXPLAINS AND PREDICTS Scientists endeavor to understand perceptions of wonders by developing clarifications for them that are steady with at present acknowledged logical standards. Such clarifications—hypotheses — might be either clearing or confined, however they should be intelligently solid and consolidate a critical group of deductively substantial perceptions. The validity of logical speculations regularly originates from their capacity to show connections among wonders that already appeared to be irrelevant .

Slide 20

SCIENCE EXPLAINS AND PREDICTS It is insufficient for logical speculations to fit the perceptions that are as of now known. Hypotheses ought to likewise fit extra perceptions that were not utilized as a part of detailing the speculations in any case; that is, speculations ought to have prescient power .

Slide 21

SCIENTISTS TRY TO IDENTIFY AND TO AVOID BIAS When confronted with a claim that something is valid, researchers react by asking what prove underpins it. However, logical proof can be one-sided in how the information are deciphered, in the recording or reporting of the information, or even in the decision of what information to consider in any case. A researcher's nationality, culture, sex, ethnic starting point, age, political feelings, and so forth., may slant him to search for or underline some sort of confirmation or understanding.

Slide 22

SCIENCE IS NOT AUTHORITARIAN It is proper in science, as somewhere else, to swing to educated wellsprings of data and conclusion, typically individuals who have practical experience in important orders. Be that as it may, regarded powers have been off-base ordinarily ever. Aristotle

Slide 23

SCIENCE IS SELF CORRECTING AND PROGRESSIVE In the short run, new thoughts that don't work well with standard thoughts may experience incredible feedback, and researchers exploring such thoughts may experience issues getting support for their exploration. Difficulties to new thoughts are the honest to goodness business of science in building legitimate learning.

Slide 24

SCIENCE IS SELF CORRECTING AND PROGRESSIVE SF Author Sir Arthur C. Clarke's First Law: "When a recognized however elderly researcher expresses that something is conceivable, he is more likely than not right. When he expresses that something is incomprehensible, he is most likely off-base."

Slide 25

SCIENCE AS A WAY OF KNOWING The Universe Is Understandable. The Universe Is a Vast Single System In Which the Basic Rules Are Everywhere the Same. Logical Ideas Are Subject To Change. Logical Knowledge Is Durable. Science Cannot Provide Complete Answers to All Questions. Logical thoughts are created by specific methods for watching, considering, testing, and approving. Perceptions/Data ➔ Hypotheses ➔ Hypothesis Testing ➔ Models ➔ Laws ➔ Theories

Slide 26

Principles and Processes of Evolution For whatever is left of the semester, we will take a gander at the reality of Evolution and the confirmation that backings Darwin's/Biology's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection.
