Question From the predictions. By making an interesting observation. Assume that you know everything. By testing the data. Question

A question is an assumption and the hypothesis is the answer to the assumption. A question is what you end up with after the test and the hypothesis is a summary of the conclusions. A question is the summary of data collected and the hypothesis is the interpretation of the data  A question follows from an interesting observation and the hypothesis is an educated guess or answer to that questiony Question  An experiment. Whatever the teacher tells you is the truth. An untestable statement. Question

You guess what the results should be. You look at your hypotheses and choose which one you like best.  You compare the data from your experimental results to the prediction they tested. You keep making different tests until they show what you want to see. Question Conclusion Hypothesis formation Communication of results Observation Question

A prediction is what a fortune teller gets paid for, and a test is what you give to your friends to make sure they are still your friends. A prediction is a possible answer to the question, and a test is what you take at the end of the semester in class. A prediction is what the doctors gives you in her clinic, and a test is what the weatherman gives you each evening.  A prediction is usually a specific statement “if . . .then”, and the test is the actual experiment used to obtain data. Question

Just another word for a hypothesis. Another word for observation.  What you think will be the outcome of your experiment or data collection. To force a conclusion based on many data. Question

Conclusion Forming a hypothesi Developing a test  Making an observation Question

If you reject your sole hypothesis you have nothing left. Hypotheses always come in pairs.  A prediction always needs more than a single hypothesis. Observations trick you into trying only one hypothesis.
