 M - Methods - scientific


Scientific methods: Rules, procedures, ways of acting, observing and experimenting that are known to lead to conclusions that are more probable than not.

Every science is based on a number of methods that are to some extent proper to the science, and to some extent common to several or all sciences. Examples of the last are mathematics, logic, statistics, and probability theory.
