6.1. Claim

6.1.1. Generally, a scientific claim is one that is based on systematic observation and evidence. It's designed to be far more reliable than any other kind of claim you could make.

6.2. Evidence

6.2.1. Scientific evidence is evidence that serves to either support or counter a scientific theory or hypothesis, although scientists also use evidence in other ways, such as when applying theories to practical problems.

6.3. Reasoning

6.3.1. Scientific reasoning has been defined as a problem-solving process that involves critical thinking in relation to content, procedural, and epistemic knowledge

7. Scientific Method

7.1. The scientific method is an empirical method of acquiring knowledge that has characterized the development of science since at least the 17th century. It involves careful observation, applying rigorous skepticism about what is observed, given that cognitive assumptions can distort how one interprets the observation. And is all the steps that i'm about to repeat.

7.2. Observation

7.2.1. the action or process of observing something or someone carefully or in order to gain information.

7.3. Question

7.3.1. a sentence worded or expressed so as to elicit information.

7.3.2. Quantitative observations

7.3.2.1. A quantitative observation is an objective method of data analysis that measures research variables using numerical and statistical parameters.

7.4. Hypothesis

7.4.1. a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation.

7.5. Iterative process

7.5.1. The iterative process is an approach to continuously improving a concept, design, or product.

7.6. Qualitative observations

7.6.1. Qualitative observation is a research method in which researchers collect data using their five senses, sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing.

7.7. Test the Prediction

7.7.1. All predictions should be testable, meaning it should be possible to design an experiment that would verify or invalidate the prediction.

7.7.2. Prediction

7.7.2.1. a thing predicted.

7.8. Publish / Peer Review

7.8.1. The peer-review process subjects an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field (peers) and is considered necessary to ensure academic scientific quality.
