  • 7. 
    A scientific theory:

      Like a hypothesis it is a "guess".

    • B. 

      May progress to a law

    • C. 

      Has to be proven to be true

    • D.

  • 8. 
    Science proves things.
    • A. 

      True: If it doesn't prove something is true, it's not a theory

    • B. 

      False: You want proofs, study Geometry!

  • 9. 
    Laws can be very complex, but theories are simple concepts.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 10. 
    How does the Scientific Method work?
    • A. 

      You learn enough about something to make an educated guess, then try to show it is wrong.

    • B. 

      A repeatable, well-tested rule learned from multiple experiments can become a law.

    • C. 

      Scientific Laws simply state a fact: an explanation for how they work is not always known (yet).

    • D. 

      Why a law (usually several laws) works is called a Scientific Theory

    • E. 

      All of the above are part of the Scientific Method
