The Scientific Method Ain't What It Used to Be
Herreid, Clyde Freeman
Journal of College Science Teaching, v39 n6 p68-72 Jul-Aug 2010
Remember the time when all you had to do was memorize these five steps: ask a question, formulate a hypothesis, perform experiment, collect data, and draw conclusions? And you received full credit for defining the scientific method. Well, those days are gone. This article discusses why the "scientific method ain't what it used to be." (Contains 2 figures.)
