Based on my observation the child showed his head control. Roll over in both directions. He can also reach, grasp toys by himself. He can support his weight on his arms and legs while crawling. While playing he can also sit by himself. He is able to grab toys that can fit in his hand while sitting. He seems to have good motor skills both fine and gross for his age.

To conduct the research for topic a research design method must be decided. The author of this paper concludes that the best design method for this research should be the survey method combined with observation method. “Some sociologists prefer one type of research to the other, but we learn most when we draw on many different research designs and do not limit ourselves to a particular type of research” (Schaefer, 2006, p 36).
The survey method alone would not be best suited for this research topic because the

The Scientific Method
January 13, 2013
The Scientific Method
There are six steps to the scientific method, and they are: observation, question, hypothesis, prediction, conclusion, and results. (Simon, E. J., Reece, J. B., & Dickey, J. L., 2010, p. 15) Each step serves a different purpose throughout the process. The basic explanation of the scientific method is that it begins with an observation, in this case the activity I chose was to figure out why my car wasn’t starting. Asking a question is the 2nd step, and the results will have answered this question. For this activity the question was “why will the car not start?” I tried every

Everyday we as people observe life and come to conclusions on how we live our lives. Whether it is religion or politics, we all have observed some sort of action that has lead us to draw a conclusion on the facts we have perceived. In science this method of deduction is called the “scientific method”. By definition, the scientific method is a multistep process that involves observation, experimentation, and a development of theory. This process is mostly used to find the cause and effect relationships in most scientific fields. There are four steps of the scientific method. The first step, observation, is the first phase of solving

Children should be engaged in activities that would help them in promoting an understanding about the natural and social environment. Understanding at this level should be based on observation and illustration rather than abstractions. Illustrations need to be drawn from the physical, biological, social and cultural aspects of life.

agrees by kicking, hitting with the fists, and so on. But since this kind of behaviour is seldom reinforced in girls, it is unlikely to occur except in unusual circumstances.
The reinforcements that controls the expression of learned behaviour may be (1) direct-tangible rewards, social approval or disapproval, or alleviation of aversive conditions; (2) vicarious- observation of someone else receiving reward's or punishment for similar behaviour, or (3) self- administered-evaluation of one's own performance with self-praise or reproach. As we noted earlier, self-administered reinforcement plays an important role in social learning theory, and efforts have been devoted to discovering the conditions that facilitate regulation of behaviour through self- reward and self-punishment.

For example, one could correlate the amount of time children watch typical cartoons on TV with the amount of time that they can stay on task on their lessons at school. Note that this study would not prove that typical cartoon programming causes lowered attention spans in children. It is quite possible that children with short attention spans simply watch more cartoons. Observational methods are purely descriptive and include naturalistic observation, "contrived

The results of the research can also be generalized to help many other people in similar situations. Case studies also have an advantage of simplifying complex concepts that may be otherwise too difficult to study in another approach.

If I would have come up with a couple theories and then tested them. Maybe I could have saved the car before I completely blew it up. For the future when I start having car issues I will try and use the Scientific Method to solve the issue before it turns out badly. First I would make an observation about the issue. I will try and decide what I think the problem may be. Then I will make hypotheses and then test them. So after I test them I will draw a conclusion whether or not that I actually fixed the problems. I think that these steps could be very helpful in everyday life. If I would actually take the time to make observations, hypotheses, predictions, and draw conclusions I might find answers too many issues that I have.

with fewer advantages. This is one of the greatest characteristics of our capitalistic way of life. The structure of capitalism is similar to that of a pyramid in which the apex corresponds to those with the greater economic power and the control over those below them. Under close observation we can clearly arrive at the presumption that equitability is not the capitalist concern. When the concentration of wealth is limited to a minority, and when this lesser part in control determines the economic outlook, the system moves closer to an elitist society in which only those on the top take decisions and ultimately create the rules. In this sense, then, fairness is out of the question since it entails the equal distribution of advantages and benefits.
