Roberts, Dana
Physics Teacher, v21 n3 p155-60 Mar 1983
Contends that the nature of physics has been misrepresented by blurring or ignoring important distinctions between "errors" and "discrepancies" and that dealing with these and related problems can improve students' enjoyment of labs and understanding of physics. Nature of physics, role of experiments, experimental errors, and error analysis are among topics discussed. (Author/JN)
