Develop and Test a Hypothesis


Scientists don't just discover things by accident; they follow a set process that enables them to test their ideas and prove them to be true or false. This guidebook explores some of the earlier steps of the scientific process. Readers will learn how to craft a hypothesis statement, and how to set up an experiment to test their theories. This text describes how famous scientists have used the scientific process to advance knowledge in their fields. Sample hypotheses and experiments are included, providing readers with a guided exploration of the process.
