The Scientific Method in the Real World

by L. E. Carmichael

Part of a Series: Science in the Real World.

Observe, explain, experiment, and share: these are the four steps of the scientific method. This fact-filled volume explores this “process for gathering information about the world,” from its origins to its many uses, which span from chemistry and biology to forensics and recipe-making. Primary source excerpts from scientists Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, and Carl Sagan; fact boxes; and “Explore Online” sections pose questions and introduce topics for further exploration. Diagrams and captioned photos illustrate the text. Back matter includes a time line, suggested ways to try out the scientific method in the real world, “Stop and Think” questions, a glossary, additional reading and a link to publisher-approved Web sites, and an index.
