<UL> <LI>A hypothesis is a clear statement of what you expect the answer to your question to be.Your hypothesis will represent your best "educated guess" based on your observations and what you already know. A hypothesis can also lead to predictions, what you think will be the outcome of your experiment or data collection. "If...then.." statement.</LI> <LI>A theory is an explanation or model that attempts to explain why a Law is true. It must hold up against continuous testing if the theory is to remain valid.</LI></UL>
