Scientific Method

Problem-solving via scientific method...

An iterative, pragmatic scheme of the four points above is sometimes offered as a guideline for proceeding:

  • Define a question
  • Gather information and resources (observe)
  • Form an explanatory hypothesis
  • Test the hypothesis by performing an experiment and collecting data in a reproducible manner
  • Analyze the data
  • Interpret the data and draw conclusions that serve as a starting point for a new hypothesis
  • Publish results
  • Retest (frequently done by other scientists)

The iterative cycle inherent in this step-by-step method goes from point 3 to 6 and back to 3 again.


Other method also utilize a step by step method of problem solving.
