The Scientific Method can be used to solve any problem,
even to find a date for Friday Night!
Here's how to do it:
Step 1: State the problem. 
You cannot solve a problem until you know
exactly what it is.
My Problem is  "I need a date for Friday Night". 
Step 2: Research the problem. 
What will it take to solve my problem? What do I know,
and need to know, about my problem?
To solve my problem, "I need someone to take out Friday Night".
Who can I take?
 Examine the possibilities.  Eliminate poor choices.  Consider likely choices.

Step 3: Form a hypothesis. 
A possible solution to my problem. The simplest solution
is often the best solution!
"My date will be ( Name )". 
Step 4: Test the hypothesis. 
Perform an experiment to see if your hypothesis works.
"Ask ( Name ) for a date Friday Night". 
Step 5: Draw conclusions from the data. 
Data are the results of an experiment.
In its simplest form, there are only two possible conclusions:
Conclusion 1 If your hypothesis was correct, you now
have a date for Friday.
PROBLEM SOLVED!
Conclusion 2 If your hypothesis was incorrect, the experiment failed.
DON'T GIVE UP!
DO MORE RESEARCH!  What was wrong with your original hypothesis?  Did you make a poor selection? 
Was your experiment flawed?  Form another hypothesis based on additional research.  Test the new hypothesis.

Continue this process until the problem is solved! 




The basic steps:
 State the problem  a problem can't be solved if it isn't understood.
 Form a hypothesis  a possible solution, formed after gathering information about the problem.
 Test the hypothesis  an experiment is an organized set of procedures performed to determine if the hypothesis solves
the problem or not.
 Draw conclusions  In it's simplest form, the conclusion will be "yes" the hypothesis was correct, or "no" the hypothesis
was not correct.
