In Defense of Science: Why Scientific Literacy Matters

This present day, just a couple of humans outdoors of the medical neighborhood are conversant with the culture of technology and its many breakthroughs. the remaining are scientifically illiterate. So say Frank R. Spellman and Joni Price-Bayer, authors of In safety of technology: Why medical Literacy issues. This e-book explains why usual voters must have an figuring out of technology, its tools, and its groundbreaking discoveries.

Work at the Boundaries of Science: Information and the Interdisciplinary Research Process

Interdisciplinary inquiry has develop into extra pervasive in fresh many years, but we nonetheless recognize little in regards to the behavior of this kind of examine or the data difficulties linked to it. This booklet is one among few empirical reports of interdisciplinary wisdom practices. It examines how interdisciplinary scientists realize and alternate info and data, highlighting how the bounds among disciplines have an effect on how info is used and the way wisdom is developed.

The Pendulum: Scientific, Historical, Philosophical and Educational Perspectives

The pendulum is a common subject in fundamental and secondary colleges, yet its complete strength for studying approximately physics, the character of technology, and the relationships among technological know-how, arithmetic, expertise, society and tradition is seldom realised. Contributions to this 32-chapter anthology take care of the technology, historical past, technique and pedagogy of pendulum movement.

6). The meaning of this statement is clear: A company is a freely moving entity, and to big companies borders are no restriction. The demands for profit could imply that production becomes located in areas where cheap labour is available, and ‘cheap labour’ not only refers to the level of salary, but also to the level of security measures to be taken. 6 Goods are produced and distributed on a global scale, and the production of goods is accompanied by a production of ‘bads’, that might be in the form of pollution and damage to the environment or to the people involved in the production.

I would even doubt that one could hope to find simple unifying characteristics of mathematics. This concept-stretching – and I am well aware of this – facilitates my arguments against the thesis of insignificance. 12 The thesis of significance suggests that mathematics in action can operate in powerful ways, and power can be exercised through mathematics in action. This thesis brings a particular significance to the discussion of mathematical literacy. The functional-critical distinction refers to two different ways of addressing a mathematics-power interaction.
