Read before our discussion section:
History Web Lecture: Issues and Methods
Science Web Lecture: What methods are appropriate to scientific investigation?
Log into the Moodle, click on the Natural Science II course link, and then on the forum link in session 2, Unit 35. Post your definition to the forum. Read any other posted definitions.
Write a short definition of science based on your understanding from our work last year and our first class discussion (Yes, you've done this before -- but it's a good idea to see if you can refine the concept again). If you use terms like "nature" or "observation methods", be sure to explain what you mean by them. Give at least two examples of scientific activity, and one contrasting example of something similar that is not scientific, according to your definition.
Log into the Moodle (if you are challenged, use your own Scholars Online userid and password), click on the master exercise for the unit, and attempt the mastery exercise at least once before chat. Bring any questions you have to chat. Then return and attempt the exercise as many times as necessary to achieve an 85% or better score.
Lab Instructions: Observation Skills
Labs are within two weeks of the discussion section; the extra time should allow you to find equipment or materials. Post your lab results to the class Lab forum, in the appropriate thread.
Take the quiz for this unit. Notice the times the quiz opens and when it closes and be sure that you complete it on time! [Remember that you must first complete the Mastery Exercise with a score of 85% or better in order to take the quiz.]
