Exposure to Science vs. Scientific Literacy.
Shamos, Morris H.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v13 n5 p333,393 Mar-Apr 1984
Suggests that exposure to science should not be confused with understanding science or with scientific literacy. Indicates that in spite of taking science classes, few students come through this experience with more than a fleeting glimpse of science, and fewer still retain any lasting impression of the scientific world.
