Science as a Process

 

Science is more than "facts" in textbook

 

Science is a process

            It is a way to figure out how the world works

            Non-scientists often use similar methods

            Scientists assume we live in a "knowable" universe

 

Scientific questions (unlike philosophical ones) are the "easy" ones

            We can answer them by gathering data and testing hypotheses

            We answer them and move on

            We accumulate knowledge in science
