Theory, Law, and Hypothesis

I was recently reading the November/December 2021 issue of “Science & Children” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association.  In this issue, I read an article entitled “Why Do Certain Terms in the Language of Science Cause So Much Confusion?” written by Matt Bobrowski.  

Language in the science classroom includes both technical/scientific terms and non-scientific words.  Some problematic words include theory, law, and hypothesis.
