In this lesson you will define science for yourself. Secondly, you will compare and contrast descriptive and experimental research. Next your job is to explain why these methods are used by scientist to solve problems. You will then decide which method to use for your independent research project. The timeline for the independent research project is found within the presentation. 

When solving a problem, it is important to discover all background information. Different sources can provide such information. How would you find information on a specific topic? What sources of information would you use? Remember you use scientific thinking every day to make decisions. Use scientific thinking to complete the independent research study.
