Why the Scientific Method?: Do We Need a New Hypothesis?
Storey, Richard D.; Carter, Jack
Science Teacher, v59 n9 p18-21 Dec 1992
Authors discuss "the scientific method" and assert that laboratory scientists ask questions but seldom state formal hypotheses to be answered by controlled experiments. Authors suggest that experimental results should not be viewed as fact, and students should not be required to memorize the steps of the scientific method. (PR)
