Today’s Common Sense in Science can be Changed Tomorrow
Abstract: STEM-education also creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. Although mathematics is robust, scientific laws are statements based on repeated experiments or observations that describe or predict a range of natural phenomena. Different observations may produce a new scientific law which may contradict with the conventional scientific laws. The teacher must tell all students that scientific laws are not always true, but only true under assumed observations. In other words, in the future, the current common sense of science can be changed tomorrow. Besides, we need to know that we are not always logical. This paper will present three examples to validate the proposed claims.
