2. Educated guess based on previous observations or experimental studies
3. Hypothesis must make predictions that can shown to be correct or incorrect (must be falsifiable)
4. Additional observations or experiments support or reject a hypothesis
5. A hypothesis is never absolutely proven
6. We may not have found the true explanation for a phenomenon.

- If exercise is related to weight loss then increasing the amount of daily exercise in someone's routine will cause them to lose weight.
- Connected by an Evolutionary History
- 1. Diverse environments support diverse organisms.
- Experimentation that does not require a preconceived hypothesis. In some cases, the goal is to collect data to be able to formulate a hypothesis.
5 True/False questions
Modern Forms of Life-Unity → Connected by an Evolutionary History
Genome → identification, naming, and classification of species based on common vertical descent ancestry.
Independent Variable → the experimental factor that is manipulated; the variable whose effect is being studied
Genome Characteristics → 1. Stores information in a stable form: The genome of every organism stores information that provides a blueprint to create its characteristics.
2. Provides continuity from generation to generation: The genome is copied and transmitted from generation to generation.
3. Acts as an instrument of evolutionary change: Every now and then, the genome undergoes a mutation that may alter the characteristics of an organism. In addition, a genome may acquire new genes by horizontal gene transfer. The accumulation of such changes from generation to generation produces the evolutionary changes that alter species and produce new species.
Taxonomy → entire set of genetic information that an organism carries in its DNA
