• Tools of Science Science is not only about test tubes, chemicals, calibrated glassware, and available laboratory technology.  Sometimes its more about the scientist.  The classical learning and techniques he or she gleens from the classroom are important.  However, putting these into practice to get the most  out of them requires more.  A sceintist who can think critically and apply their personal tools, their senses, and avoid contaminating the scientifc landscape through interference or bias is just as important.  In this course we learn about these tools of science, how to apply the 3-step scientific method, and what to do with data.  Scientist are not always wearing white coats and safety glasses and experiments do not always take place in a laboratory.  So lets put training, our sences, and maybe just a bit of our best Shelock Holmes investigative natures to work!

    Click on this title header (Tools of Science) to access the Tools of Science presentation lesson.  Watch in the Screen Show mode and mouse over slides to view hyperlinked videos that support the lesson.

    Additionally, below are the  YouTube videos I created for easy reference.  They have an additonal value if we are not on class and again find ourselves engaged in virtual learning.  Each addresses a section of the unit that I provide a narrative lesson on, but it does not afford us with the oppportunity to view the hyperlinked videos.  However, I broke each of them out and made them available to you.
