I have used the scientific method in my case study to prove my hypothesis, if a plant is grown in light it will grow faster than a plant grown in the dark. To conduct my experiment, you will need lima beans, potting soil, and styrofoam cups. First, put three inches of potting soil into each styrofoa
Hypothesis based scientific studies are used to test theories. There is a detailed process that goes into testing those theories. We naturally use some of the steps scientists use to test their theories in our everyday problem solving.
