The Mystery Tubes: Teaching Pupils about Hypothetical Modelling
Kenrick, Carole
School Science Review, v99 n367 p38-43 Dec 2017
This article recounts the author's working experience of one method by which pupils' understanding of the epistemologies of science can be developed, specifically how scientists can develop hypothetical models and test them through simulations. She currently uses this approach for transition lessons with pupils in upper primary or lower secondary school (ages 7-14), but has also used it in the past with pupils aged up to 18 years.
