Errors in Science and Their Treatment in Teaching Science
Kipnis, Nahum
Science & Education, v20 n7-8 p655-685 Jul 2011
This paper analyses the real origin and nature of scientific errors against claims of science critics, by examining a number of examples from the history of electricity and optics. This analysis leads to a conclusion that errors are a natural and unavoidable part of scientific process. If made available to students, through their science teachers, such a knowledge, would give students a deeper insight into the scientific process and remove their fear of making errors in their own laboratory work.
