What is the scientific method?
The scientific method is a simple but effective algorithim to carry out practical research. In other words, it is like one of those "Choose your own adventure" books that say "If you want to challenge the man in chess, flip to this page. If you want to cuddle a Great White, flip to that page." Something like that. That means, say if a step succeeds, you proceed. If a step fails, you go back. This can be applied to any form of scientific research and can also be represented in a flow chart for those who aren't that bright.
