Have you ever had a problem that you needed to solve or a question that you needed answered? How did you go about finding the solution or answer? Scientists use a systematic approach called the scientific method to obtain reliable knowledge that results in “good” science as opposed to haphazard or incomplete “bad” science. This problem-solving approach is not only for scientists, however. It is a useful method for anyone seeking solid answers to questions. For this week’s Discussion, you will be asked to think about a time in your life when you may have used the scientific method to answer a problem.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review the scientific method and information about what makes good science on pages 10–14 of the course text, The Good Earth.
Also review the following websites from the Learning Resources:
How the Scientific Method Works
What Is Inquiry?
By Day 3
Post your own explanation of the role and importance of critical thinking and of using the scientific method—both in an earth science class and in everyday life. Next, briefly describe a situation in your own life where you used the scientific method, or elements of the scientific method, to solve a problem. Your description should:
Describe whether the process you followed was either inductive or deductive.
Identify your observations and hypotheses.
The report is Visualizing the Meadoway – Toronto Dorset Park Neighborhood Here’s the intro for you to conclude and sum up Dorset Park is a neighbourhood located in the Western portion of Scarborough. Dorset Park borders Highway 401, which is on the Meadoway, to the north of Toronto. Another park, Midland Park, is located to the east of Dorset Park. To its south, is Lawrence Avenue and to the west, Birchmount Road. The purpose of this project is to explore Dorset Park and analyze it from the point of view of different frameworks, such as ecosystem services, political ecology, and indigenous, of the park. Through these lenses, we examine how greater ecological diversity might remedy the current issues facing the Meadoway, and in turn, better the neighbourhoods surrounding it. This report also addresses issues with the site, including socio-ecological issues, socio-cultural issues, and the lack of biodiversity. From doing so, this report provides suggestions that would improve the park and well-being of the neighbourhood, ecologically, recreationally, and economically. (Two main issues exist: accessibility and lack of ecological diversity) The report is finished, still lacking the conclusion

1) Write a History of the Dorset Park and its relation to the Meadoway (3 pages, 1.5 spacing) MLA referencing – in the history of Toronto Dorset Park, should detail when the neighbourhood was established, key socio-economic, ethnocultural and demographic features, its existing green and public spaces and their uses, and how its relationship to the Meadoway has evolved. We are interested in both the Meadoway as an ecological and infrastural site and the ways it has responded to needs of the adjacent neighbourhoods over its long history. Should consider past, present, anticipated (including uses prior to the Meadoway becoming a green space, including uses as “terrain vague”) For instance (because we are interested in divergent uses and potential tensions arising from use) if you were writing a section on Stanley Park it would be significant to mention prior occupation of the site by Indigenous peoples and settlers, if you were writing a history of Central Park in New York City it would be important to mention the settlement and displacement of African- Americans in the creation of the Park
