...SCIENTIFIC METHOD Scientific Method Scientific method refers to a set of procedures and principles that researchers’ use to develop queries, collect valuable data and make conclusions. Since psychological studies are aimed at describing, explaining, predicting and to the extent of influencing mental behaviors or processes; psychologists utilize scientific methods to conduct psychological research (Feldman & Dinardo, 2012). While conducting research work, researchers not only seek to describe behaviors and explicate why these behaviors occur; they also aim at creating research that can assist in predicting and even changing...

...Scientific Notation Numbers can be infinite. They can be too large or small. In this manner, it would be impractical to write them in such a way that it would take time and may be prone to mistakes. It is in line with this that scientific notation was discovered in order to make life more convenient in dealing with too large or small numbers. Scientific notation can be expressed in the following ways: Suppose we want to express 8,900 in a simple way using scientific notation, its new form would be 8.9 x 103. Thus, in cases where numbers can be too large, such as 8,900,000,000,000,000, scientific notation finds its way to transform the said number into simplified form: 8.9 x 1015. In cases... ...

Speaking in a strict sense, every claim has a similar amount of evidence. However, the evidence that one rarely thinks about, supports ordinary claims. Extraordinary claims, therefore, require extraordinary evidence since they contradict claims that have the support of extraordinary evidence. The principle of falsifiability contends that, for any claim to be meaningful, in principle, it should be falsifiable, i.e. must be capable of disapproval (Harre? 24)....
