Sc300 Big Ideas in Science: From Methods to mutation
The scientific method can be defined simply as a series of steps. There are five steps to the scientific method that are used. These steps consist of making an observation, proposing a hypothesis, accepting or rejecting the hypothesis, and revising it as if it had been rejected; or draw conclusions as if it had been accepted. Every theory will not use all of the steps each and every time. While testing these theories, scientists should always keep an open mind simply because with science the outcomes of the results are unknown (Trefil, (2010).
The first scenario involves waking up in the morning and having nor running water.

The only ways to find out the answer to these questions are to check with the neighbors to see if they are having any trouble with their water. Next would be to check outside underneath the house to see if there are any signs of ice on any of the pipes or if there are any of the water pipes broken. The last thing to check would be the water company to see if the bill has been paid. Once checking the neighbor’s house they are not having any problems and to my findings the temperature last night did not get to or go below freezing. There are no signs of any pipe breaks or ice on any of the pipes so that leaves only one solution going to the local water company and paying the water bill. SECOND SCENARIO
The problem at work consists of safety issues. Accidents may often be small, but they can also lead to life altering results such as mutilation and even death. The most common safety issues...
