Scientific literacy requires “knowledge and understand-ing of scientific concepts and processes ... for personal decision making, participating in civic and cultural affairs, and economic productivity.”
“The scientifically literate person is one who is aware that science, mathematics, and technology are interdependent human enterprises with strengths and limitations;
“Science is the quest for objective truth. It provides a conceptual framework for the understanding of natural phenomena and their causes and effects.
Per Jon Miller at NIU
