01.01 The Science of Chemistry
Driving Question: How does science help us understand events in the natural world, and
what is chemistry's role in understanding these interactions?
Key Ideas and Terms
Notes
FQ: What knowledge is considered science?
What does the field of composition and structure of materials and the changes they
chemistry study?
undergo.
Define phenomena.
observable events or occurrences;
What is science?
based on empirical observations, experimentation, and explanations
based on logical reasoning.
an observation verified by experimentation or experience rather than
theory
What are empirical
observations?
Describe each of these characteristics of science:
 Observable

Testable

Replicable

Reliable

Flexible
What is bias?
a prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group
FQ: What questions can be answered by science?
What are two things
you can look for to
determine if a question
can be answered by
science?
What are some
examples of testable
and non-testable
questions?
FQ: How do I investigate questions using science?
What is the scientific
method?
Question: What type
of question can the
scientific method
attempt to answer?
Research: Why is it
useful to do
background research
before you write and
test a hypothesis?
Hypothesis: What is a
hypothesis, and why is
it important to a
scientific
investigation?
Test: Describe the test
(experiment) step of
the scientific method.
What is an
independent variable?
Give some examples
from hypotheses and
investigations.
What is a dependent
variable? Give some
examples from
hypotheses and
investigations.
What are controlled
variables, and why are
they important?
Give some examples
of controlled variables
from hypotheses and
investigations.
Analysis: Describe
how results are
analyzed after an
experiment.
What is inference?
Where in the scientific
method do you make
inferences?
FQ: What makes science reliable?
What is included in
reliable science? What
does it mean to be
replicable? repeatable?
What are
characteristics of
“bad” science? Give
an example of each
characteristic.
A lot of new vocabulary is introduced and used in this course. Practice to become more
familiar with all the new terms and definitions. Also, develop responses for the lesson's
focus questions to be sure you understand the content.
