Number your questions

Number your questions:

  • Who proposed the idea that the sun is the center of the universe?

  • What was the view stated above called?

  • What happened to Galileo for supporting a “radical” view of the universe?

  • Contrary to what earlier ’scientists’ believed, Kepler showed what about planets?

  • What specific observation did William Harvey make?

  • Define scientific method

  • What is Francis Bacon known for supporting?


What is science

What is Science?

Was the scientific revolution really a revolution?


What is science1

What is Science?

  • Prior to 19th century – “natural philosophy” (magic, theology…)

  • Middle Ages - science = knowledge

  • Renaissance - science = knowledge & art

  • Late 1500s:

    • science = theoretical knowledge

    • art = skill that only required practice

  • 1800: Science is a theoretical and methodical study of nature

  • 1850:

    • ‘natural philosopher’ becomes ‘scientist’

    • Fields are established- physics, chemistry, biology

  • 1939: “Scientific Revolution” phrase is coined by historians to describe changes in science during the 1600s

    …so, was it really a revolution in science? Or simply a series of changes?


With a partner

With a partner…

  • If you were to give a 4th grader a five minute explanation of what science is, how would you describe it?

  • What comes to mind if you hear someone say the following comments?

    • “Oh but that isn’t science”

    • “What an unscientific view…”

    • “Science has established…”

    • “That was the scientific way to approach it”

  • What characteristics distinguish science from what is not science?

  • What do you consider the most important defining characteristics of what science is? Be able to explain your reasoning here.


The scientific revolution

The ‘Scientific Revolution’

  • Textbooks, scholars, Arlington County curriculum creators and others routinely refer to a “Scientific Revolution” centered in Europe in the 17th century. Not all scholars (or Ms. Greco?) agree on whether use of the term “Scientific Revolution” is appropriate (remember…question everything!).


Ask yourself

Ask yourself…

  • What would have to have happened to make using the term “revolution” appropriate?

  • What questions would you ask, the answers to which would help you decide more reliably whether the term is appropriate for what happened to science in the 17th century Europe?

  • What historical conditions or events do you think would promote or hinder the development and spread of science? Scientific change? How?


Primary sources have the answer but how will you interpret them

Primary Sources have the answer… but how will you interpret them?

  • Source

  • Point of View

  • Purpose

  • Argument

  • Identify these four points every timeyou are reading a primary source!


Part 1 was there science before the scientific revolution

Part 1: Was There Science Before the Scientific Revolution?

  • Prompt: Identify the most distinctive characteristics of medieval science.

  • Examine documents

    • 10th – 14th centuries

    • European and Islamic authors

  • Identify Source, POV, Purpose, Argument


Part 2 science comes of ages was it a revolution

Part 2: Science Comes of Ages—Was It a Revolution?

  • Prompt: Identify the most distinctive characteristics of 16th-18th century science.

  • Examine documents

    • 16th – 18th centuries

    • European authors with different backgrounds

  • Identify Source, POV, Purpose, Argument


Comparison

Comparison

  • Look back at your notes

  • Generate ‘characteristics’ for each time period and compare them

  • Evaluate: Was the scientific revolution really a revolution?

    (answer this as if you were creating a thesis statement to be supporting using the documents you just analyzed!)
