What is the difference
between a hypothesis and a
Bob: Hypothesis is an educated guess and
a theory is a well tested answer that has
yet to be proven wrong.
Bob:I will go with this
answer instead of mine.
Corinne: A hypothesis is a proposition assumed as a premise
in the beginning of an argument while a theory has taken
that hypothesis and has tested it until it could no longer be
How are scientific models
used to support theory?
Bob: A theory must be tested and
experimented by many scientist before it can
be considered a theory.
Corinne: Models are used to help prove a
theory. With models, it is then easier to
visualize how the theory is supposed to be
and how truthful it is.
Why do scientific laws
come before theories?
Bob: Because they have been proven
true, unlike theories have yet to be
Grant: Theories tend to be built off of laws. Laws are like
a generalization about something. Since we build off of a
foundation known laws, theories come after, and they help
explain laws even better.
Unlike laws, theories can not be proven
true, however theories are used as
possible answers to unanswered laws.
What is the difference
between a law and a
Both these answers are
Bob: A law is proven sequence of
events that has consistently shown to
have never changed.
Corinne:A law derives from a theory that has
been tested many times and has been
criticized by others until there are no visible
How has your understanding of the terms
hypotheses, theory, and law changed as a
result of completing the reading
How did you guys answer
Bob: I was unaware that theories are heavily
tested before becoming nationally recognized
as a theory. I was also unaware that gravity is
explained through theory and not law.
Corinne: I agree with ^. I also did not know
that there were several types of hypotheses
that needed to be tested as well.

How would you describe the process of
scientific discovery? Correctly use the terms
law, hypothesis, and theory in your
Bob: First one will hypothesize a educated guess as to a solution to a
sequence of events that has yet to be explained. Then after many
experiments and tests, it then becomes a theory so long as it has not
been proven wrong. Then if it is proven consistently correct it will be
categorized as a law.
