7-1 final project natural science | Prespectives of Natural Science | Southern New Hampshire University

 I have included all my assignments for this Project.  

Course Outcomes

In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:

  • Determine fundamental approaches to scientific research in addressing questions related to the natural world 
  • Develop questions about fundamental aspects of the natural world that inform personal assumptions, beliefs, and values using empirical evidence 
  • Investigate questions about fundamental aspects of the natural world that inform personal assumptions, beliefs, and values using empirical evidence 
  • Articulate the value of the natural sciences for their impact on contemporary issues 

Overview

This course will introduce you to fundamental ideas in the natural sciences and how scientists study phenomena in the natural world. Having a well-rounded understanding of scientific research is much more than just an academic pursuit. We encounter natural science every day. Consider news headlines about vaccine development, debate about climate change, privatizing space exploration, how bees affect our environment, and whether intestinal health impacts mental health. Think about the conversations you’ve had with friends and family about weather, gardening, cancer, or black holes. These are all natural science topics!

Being scientifically literate helps you to better understand the world, solve problems, and make informed judgments. It also allows you to evaluate the credibility of claims you hear in the news or from members of your community. A society that understands how science works thinks critically about information, is empowered to make better decisions, and is less likely to be misled by those who distort evidence to promote their own agenda.

In this project, you will use a recent news article to identify a natural science topic that you are curious about. You will explore how research is conducted about the topic, scientific developments that have affected it, and its societal significance. This will provide you with a deeper understanding of scientific research and the fundamental aspects of the natural world.

Directions

Complete this project by addressing the criteria below. You will complete parts of the project in each module and receive instructor feedback.

  3. Identify a scientific approach that the scientist(s) used to research the topic.
    1. Consider the way the topic was studied or how evidence was collected. Consult your article for this information. You do not need to conduct outside research.

Part 2: Fundamental Questions About the Natural World
In this section, you will identify questions you want to answer about your topic. Your finalized question will directly influence the hypothesis you write. Finally, you will consider how your opinions and experiences affected the focus of your hypothesis.

  1. Finalize your research question related to the main idea in the news story you selected.
    1. Your finalized question will be based on the questions you began working with earlier in the course.
  2. Propose a hypothesis based on your finalized research question.

  3. Explain how your personal beliefs, assumptions, and values influenced how you approached writing your hypothesis.
    1. Think about your preexisting opinions and knowledge about the topic. How might they have affected the focus of your hypothesis?

  3. Discuss how an ethical issue might impact research on your topic.
    1. Some examples of ethical issues in science include bias in research, the impact of politics on science, research funding sources, objectivity in science, or the spread of scientific misinformation.

Part 4: The Value of Studying the Natural Sciences
