1 -- Part 1: .2 The Process of Science
The application of science to answer questions related to the law is called forensic science.
Biologists can be forensic scientists.
trace material associated with crimes is examined by forensic scientists, who provide scientific evidence for use in courts.
Popular television shows that feature forensic scientists on the job may be the reason for the increased interest in forensic science.
The types of forensic work that can be done have been updated by the development of new techniques.
Crimes against people such as murder, rape, and assault are what their job activities are related to.
Their work involves analyzing samples such as hair, blood, and other body fluids and also processing DNA found in many different environments and materials.
Other biological evidence, such as insect parts or pollen grains, can also be analyzed by forensic scientists.
Students who want to pursue careers in forensic science will need to take chemistry and biology courses as well as some intensive math courses.
Some of the oldest life forms on the planet can be seen through a light microscope.
The stromatolites along the shores of Lake Thetis in Western Australia are ancient structures formed by the layers of cyanobacteria in shallow waters.
Like geology, physics, and chemistry, biology gathers knowledge about the natural world.
The study of life is called biology.
The discoveries of biology are made by a community of researchers who work together using agreed-on methods.
Like all sciences, biology is a social enterprise.
The methods of science include careful observation, record keeping, logical and mathematical reasoning, experimentation, and submitting conclusions to the scrutiny of others.
A well-designed experiment is often described as elegant or beautiful.
Like politics, science has practical implications and some science is dedicated to practical applications, such as the prevention of disease.
Regardless of the goal, science has transformed human existence and will continue to do so.
The bacterium is visualized using a scanning electron microscope.
Science is a specific way of learning about the world.
The introduction to biology has taken place during this time.
The methods of science cannot be applied to certain areas of knowledge.
These include answering moral, aesthetic, or spiritual questions.
Science can't investigate these areas because they are outside the realm of material phenomena, the phenomena of matter and energy, and can't be observed and measured.
One of the most important aspects of the scientific method is the testing of hypotheses.
A scientific theory is a generally accepted, thoroughly tested and confirmed explanation for a set of observations.
Scientific knowledge is based on scientific theory.
Theories to laws do not represent an increase in certainty about the world.
Hypotheses are the day-to-day material that scientists work with and they are developed within the context of theories.
Laws are concise descriptions of parts of the world that are easy to understand.
Science includes astronomy, biology, computer sciences, geology, logic, physics, chemistry, and mathematics.
A museum of natural sciences might have some of the items listed above.
Astronomy, biology, computer science, geology, logic, physics, chemistry, and mathematics are some of the fields of science.
The natural sciences are astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics.
There are some disciplines that build on two sciences.
The development of science is driven by curiosity and inquiry.
Scientists want to understand how the world works.
Two methods of logical thinking are used.
In descriptive science, this type of reasoning is common.
A Biologist makes observations and records them.
The raw data can be supplemented with drawings, pictures, photos, or videos.
The scientist can make conclusions from many observations.
Evaluating a large amount of data involves formulating generalizations from careful observation.
Brain studies can work this way.
People are doing a task and many of their brains are being observed.
The part of the brain that lights up is shown to be the part that controls the response to the task.
