    • FORMULATE HYPOTHESES
    • EXPLAIN THE USES AND LIMITATIONS OF MODELS
    • COMPARE & CONTRAST THEORIES, LAWS, FACTS, & OPINIONS

SCIENCE

  • DEALS WITH OBSERVABLE PHENOMENA
  • DEALS WITH MEASURABLE PHENOMENA
  • DEALS WITH REPEATABLE PHENOMENA
  • CAN DESCRIBE AND OFFER EXPLANATIONS BUT THESE EXPLANANTIONS MUST BE TESTED REPEATEDLY TO BE PROVEN AS FACT. OFTEN NEW INFORMATION CAN COME ALONG THAT CHANGES THE EXPLANATION
  • CAN BE FAULTY DUE TO HUMAN ERROR AND/OR BIAS
