Answering these questions:
1. What is the difference between laws, theories, and hypotheses?
2. What do you think of the notion of abandoning the term hypothesis in favor of terms such as
generalizing hypotheses, explanatory hypotheses, and predictions? Does this clarify or obscure
the nature of science?
3. What is the role of experimentation in science?
4. How do proof, reality, truth relate to science
While these questions do interest me (nerd alert), do my professors not realize I’m a BIO major? What is this writing stuff? Where are my safety goggles & pipets? I have experiments to finish!
