1. Describe the basic steps of the scientific method. In what ways do you think this model oversimplifies how scientists really work, or how you approach scientific problems in your workplace? Discuss one example of how you have solved a problem (preferably one related to environmental science). Did you follow the steps of the scientific method? Where did you find that you had to deviate from the basic steps? If you did not have to deviate, where in the process did you come the closest to doing so? Support your answers.
Your response must be at least 200 words in length.
