Beginner's Guide to Scientific Method - 3rd edition

Beginner`s Guide to Scientific Method (ISBN10: 0534584500; ISBN13: 9780534584504)
ISBN13: 978-0534584504
ISBN10: 0534584500

Summary: This concise book provides an introduction to the scientific method of inquiry. This book not only presents not only a methodical approach to the proper conduct of science but also contains comprehensive coverage of pseudoscience and fallacies. Compact enough to be used as a supplementary book, yet comprehensive enough in its coverage to be used as a core text, this text assists students in using the scientific method to design and assess experiments.

B ...show moreenefits:

  • NEW! An entirely new Chapter 2,"Observation,"-- gives unprecedented attention to this basic concept.
  • NEW! Chapter 4,"Testing Explanations," has been streamlined and simplified. The concept of decisive experiment is discussed in an intuitive way that will be helpful to beginning students.
  • NEW! For the sake of clarity, the discussion of proposing and testing explanations is composed of two shorter chapters (Chapters 3 and 4).
  • NEW! A reorganized Chapter 6--on fallacious applications of scientific method--is designed to make these matters more accessible for students.
  • NEW! Each chapter discusses examples from the fringes of science--ESP, UFOs, crop circles--in the text and exercises. Students learn what good science and poor science involve.
  • NEW! Refined exercise sets and additional new problems add timeliness and freshness to the book's presentation.
  • Hundreds of practical, relevant exercises and examples address common conceptual issues and pitfalls confronted in students' own practices of scientific leaning.
  • Real-life examples from scientific literature provide immediate practical applications of the concepts encountered in the book.
