The unit is organized into four parts: Recognizing Problems, Stating Problems Effectively, Formulating Hypotheses, and Testing Hypotheses. The teaching materials consist of an informational narrative, a set of illustrative slides, and worksheets for the students. A multiple choice post-test is provided as a means of evaluating student attainment of eight behavioral objectives. This work was prepared under ESEA Title III contract. (BC)
