Summary

Designed for the student who has little or no background in the sciences, this book by Stephen S. Carey provides a brief, non-technical introduction to the basic methods underlying all good scientific research. It is ideal as a supplementary text for any course in which students must have some rudimentary understanding of how science is done. Topics include establishing causal links, testing explanations, extraordinary claims and anecdotal evidence, and fallacies. End-of-chapter exercises help reinforce material. A sold supplement for students, this book can also be bundled with the text.

  • Real-life exercises from scientific literature provide practical application of concepts.
  • Emphasis on the proper conduct of science, with comprehensive coverage of pseudoscience and fallacies.
  • Hundreds of practical and relevant exercises and examples.
  • Chapters 2 and 3 have been reversed and extensively revised in accordance with reviewer comments.
  • Improved coverage of correlation, types of explanations, working with media reports, understanding explanations, statistical analysis, and real science applications.
