TAKLIMAT 2Q SCIENCE 8 OGOS 2011 (SMKRL) By : Nor Sheila Binti Reslan SCIENTIFIC SKILLS – to formulate questions and find answers systematically 1. OBSERVING Write changes that you can see (based on diagram), hear, smell, touch, taste (based on experiment) about an object OR a phenomena. 2. CLASSIFYING Groups objects OR events according to similarities OR differences. 3. MEASURING & USING NUMBERS Record readings accurately and write with standard units. 4. INFERRING (What can be said..) Make early conclusion based on observation OR collected data. Ex: RV ..because…MV  Seed germination occurs because of the presence of water, air & suitable temperature (REJECT : …depends on/influenced by/affected by…). 5. PREDICTING State outcome of future event based on collected data. Usually a range of whole numbers (quantitative experiment) ; but in some cases predict whether it become smaller/bigger, etc (qualitative experiment) 6. COMMUNICATING Tables, graphs (line graph), bar chart, figures or models to describe an object or event. 7. MAKING RELATIONSHIP (USING SPACE TIME RELATIONSHIP) Describe changes in..….with time.(changes in location, direction, shape, size, volume, weight, mass, etc) 8. INTERPRETING DATA Explain rationally (ex: state what happen if the needed variable is not available/ is changed/ decreases/ increases) about an object, event, or pattern based on collected data. 9. DEFINING OPERATIONALLY (What can you deduce…) Define concept by action (what should be done) and observation (result from action that can define the terms). 10. HYPOTHESISING General statement about relationship between manipulated variable (MV) and responding variable (RV) to explain an event or observation. (Hypothesis can be right/accepted or wrong/rejected.) TAKLIMAT 2Q SCIENCE 8 OGOS 2011 (SMKRL) 11.CONCLUSION RIGHT hypothesis. By : Nor Sheila Binti Reslan Justify the hypothesis is accepted or rejected AND state the
