Scientific method
A scientific method is a procedure to explore aspects of the question or new idea to discover a conclusion, it is the basic guide to answering ideas, and is the backbone of science. Throughout science all sides of the test must be discovered before any overall conclusion can be made. This helps reduce controversy and helps to prevent public outbreaks as all areas of the topic wasn’t discovered properly and is something to follow to ensure all parts are correctly covered. This is because the test can become inaccurate and cannot be fully identified as all areas of the test have not been trailed. It is a process for experimentation which is used to explore and answer questions. When scientists cannot directly

Within the science industry rarely scientists follow one straight path this is because it is hard to fully understand something which is knew and is hard to this of one new question/idea. Gary Garber, a physics teacher at Boston University Academy said “there isn’t one method of ‘doing science.’” In some instances, computer is used to simulate conditions this diverts from the method this causes many scientists to not even have a question or hypothesis and just want to sample ideas. There are also problems such as, advanced technologies needed.
People such as geologists don’t necessarily do experiments they may just study the landforms this, in contrast with the scientific method doesn’t follow the ‘one size fits all’ method causing the steps to be re arranged or removed or added. What the method doesn’t take on-board is if the experiment is completely wrong and needs to be completely changed with the method there is no way of telling that the experiment you are doing is completely wrong.

With using this method there are advantages such as, it being a basic guideline for people to follow this helps people like amateurs. It also they can identify a research problem, design a study to investigate the problem, collect and analyse data, draw conclusions and
