This volume presents historical sketches of events and scientists. Produced for use by teachers using the MINNEMAST curriculum materials, the material is intended to exhibit the roles of processes in science throughout history. The seven stories included concern Anaxagoras, Achimedes, Napier, the development of the telescope and microscope, Louis Agassiz, Otheniel Marsh and natural history, and ancient systems of numeration. A table provides the teacher with information concerning the skills and concepts illustrated by each story. The processes listed are: calculation, classification, description, experimentation, hypothesis making, measurement, model building, and observation. (SD)
