Deductive Logic

Other scientists wonder why things are the way they are. They form ideas, or hypotheses using "deductive logic" about how things must work and then test these ideas in experiments that they design.

Whether a scientist is conducting descriptive (observational) science or experimental science, they will be using evidence to support the claims that they make, and they will be using the framework of the scientific method to help them do this in a way that avoids bias and focuses on the evidence they have.

In this term's research project we will be focusing on experimental research, rather than descriptive science.
