Tutor description

Whether you think of yourself as an up and coming scientist or not, you use science every day. You will explore how you apply different aspects of science in your daily life in a two part project. In 1,000-words, discuss the following: The Scientific Method Each and every day, you are faced with having to make split-second decisions, and the need to solve random problems that you encounter. To reach those decisions and work those problems out you are subconsciously using the scientific method. Apply the steps of the Scientific Method to two situations that could occur in your everyday life. Use the scientific method in the first scenario provided by your instructor to solve the problem at hand. Please come up with a second detailed scenario on your own, using the categories provided, and follow the same steps in the scientific method to find a resolution. For both scenarios, be sure to use terminology from the scientific method (hypothesis, experiment, etc.) while describing how you woul

Science designed this process to ensure accurate valid results. If the hypothesis that is developed is not consistent with the results it will be modified. The first step is clearly expressing the problem. The scientist will then record through observation the possible variables of the problem (Lafferty, 2008). The next step is to form a hypothesis. This is when the scientist makes an educated calculation about the problem. They will try to determine an outcome through the knowledge they have gained during the observation process. In order to determine if the hypothesis is correct it must first be tested. This is the experimentation step of the scientific process. The scientist will conduct experiments to determine the strength of the hypothesis. Once the experiment is complete the scientist will draw a conclusion. If the experiment has negative results the hypothesis will need to be adjusted. The problem is it is late at night and a woman has just arrived home. When the woman unlocks the front door of her home she reaches in to turn on the lights. After she attempts to turn on the lights she notices they are not working. The women had observed when walking up to her front door that the porch lig
