In this article from the Journal of College Science Teaching the author addresses inquiry based Science, critical thinking, and use of mathematics in methods of teaching Science. The approach described sets a course midway between Science as dry memorization of fact and Science as a game played with toys. This article is relevant to Science teachers at all academic levels.
