This writing seemeth to me … not much better than the noise or sound which musicians make while they are in tuning their instruments - Francis Bacon No tale is so good that it can’t be spoiled in the telling - Proverb Everything written with vitality expresses that vitality; there are no dull subjects, only dull minds. - Raymond Chandler

Scientific Method Identify/Define the question Formulate the hypothesis Be sure the hypothesis is testable Design experiments to test the hypothesis Make sure the experiments will generate data that will specifically  test the hypothesis. Use real-world experiments when appropriate  Perform the experiments and collect data Analyze the results

Questions lead to Experiments What happens if … ? Identify and describe a phenomenon Experiments should isolate the phenomenon Why did it happen? Causal Experiments should probe possible causes and show the effects How are things related? Predictive Experiments must vary the appropriate variables to identify  relationships

Identify Variables What effects the outcome? Start with the hypothesis There may be many variables Can the number of variables be reduced? Simplify Beware of confounding variables related to both the cause and the outcome ie. a server may have other programs running that effect traffic and  performance

Multiple Variable Effects Vary the value of one variable at a time Simplest to perform Doesn’t give information about the interactions between variables Vary the values of all variables at the same time
