  1. What are the Five Steps of the Scientific Method?
    • 1.) Recognize a problem
    • 2.) Make an educated guess---> a hypothesis --> about the answer
    • 3.) Predict the consequences of the hypothesis
    • 4.) Find a way to experiment ; then test the problem
    • 5.) Formulated the simplest general rule that organizes the three main ingredients; hypothesis, prediction, and experimental outcome.
