It never solves a problem without creating 10 more.” o Immanuel Kant – “Every answer given on principle of experience begets a fresh question.” Chapter outline:  The role of science  The scientific method  Other ways of knowing  The organization of science  The role of science o Making choices  Be an informative citizen  Knowledge enables you to make decision based on understanding, not on what others tell you  Why study science? o Most powerful tool for understanding o Incorporates basic ideas and theories o Provides framework for new questions o Provides unparalleled view of order and symmetry of the universe and its workings  Observation o History  Greek philosophers  Middle ages  Alchemist laid the foundation for modern chem o Alchemy – just mixing stuff together, melt this blend that, to turn lead into gold o Alchemist knew lead and gold were extremely similar, knew if they succeeded they’d be extremely rich  Advances in mathematics due to first discoveries o Done to help understand science  Navigation: magnetism o Observation – no manipulation  Just look and see what’s happening, as soon as you manipulate then it becomes experimentation  Maybe difficult in astronomy, biology, geology – very observational, hard to manipulate in these fields o Experiment – manipulation o Physics/chem lab You notice that when the parchment paper of an ancient document is exposed to a certain chemical, the parchment paper becomes a different color.

It uses anonymous experts who determine the worthiness of a particular piece of research  Quantitative analysis o What does it mean for two quantities to be proportional? o What does it mean for two quantities to be inversely proportional?  Move in opposite directions o Units obey the equations o Speed (mph) = distance/time 3 The symbolic equation A=kB means which of the following? A is proportional to the cube of B  Measurements presented visually in the form of a graph o Accelerating a time goes on o Galileo Which statement does not describe a falling object? Distance equals a constant multiplied by time Correct: 2 - D = a constant multiplied by (time) - The distance traveled is proportional to the time traveled multiplied by the time traveled - Time squared multiplied by a constant equals distance - If an object falls three times as long as another, it will travel nine times as far as another
