The purpose of the “Scientific Method” is to prove or disprove a hypothesis. In courses that are strictly scientific in nature, such as biology, the “Scientific Method” is used as a step-by-step process as an experiment. However, in a course such as critical thinking, we can still apply the scientific method to help us solve problems. Your assignment is to apply the scientific method by answering questions related to the case study.
