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.
