Basic science skills and processes allows students to solve problems. Also, students will be able to think critically, make decisions, find answers. The following basic science skills and processes are central to the delivery of instructions in classrooms.

Observing in basic science skills

Observing involves getting information about objects, situations, or events. Observations may be qualitative or quantitative in nature. Observing provides both a basis for new hypotheses and a tool for testing.

Measuring

Observations are quantified using un standard units and then standard units. Length, area, volume, mass, and time intervals also force is among the measurements. We can select appropriate measurements instruments and units within the metric system.

Classifying

Classifying involves the grouping objects, concepts, also events on the basis of observable properties to show similarity.

Inferring

Inferring means suggesting more about a set of conditions than is observed already. Its basis on observed data and past experience. We can modify interferences on the basis of new evidence.

Predicting

On the basis of ordered data, we also make forecast about future. We also make predications on the basis of events and tests.

Communicating

It is a process of organizing and processing data that occurs between the observation stage and the interpretation. It usually involves organizing rough data in a more meaningful way.

Hypothesizing

Hypothesizing is an “educated” guess about an expected relationship between two variables in an attempt to explain relationship. A hypothesis should be testable.

Experimenting

Experimenting is a cause-and-effect test between two variables. This can begin with setting a problem solved.

Controlling variables

Controlling variables involves the process of deciding which variables or factors will influence the outcome of an experiment. Also, situation and events recognized variables in systematic manner.

Formulating models

This process involves the use of physical or mental models to describe the behavior of something. Also, constant vigilance is necessary to ascertain the validity of the model. Models often need revision or repetition to accommodate new facts.
