An important part of the scientific process is to record accurate and repeatable methods. Methods are what you do in an experiment. This means that someone else reading your method should be able to repeat the experiment in the exact way you did it and, therefore, would expect to find similar results. Method should be clear meaning they should be easy to understand, and concise meaning they should not use too many words. Method should be in a chronological order. This means event should be listed in the order in which they happen. They should also include lots of important details. Let's look at an example of some methods to see if music help plants grow faster. First, put 3 tablespoons of soil into 6 identical pots. Now, add 5 tomato seeds to each pot and cover with another tablespoon of soil. Now, label 3 of the pots with music and 3 with no music.
