Abstract

The new programme of study for KS4 science has, as an underpinning approach, how science works. The Qualifications and Curriculum Agency includes in this approach scientific method. This article provides some background information on the development of the scientific method across the history of scientific working and asks which, if any, school of thought we should apply to school science.
