Description: Ideal as a standalone supplement in any science course, The Scientific Endeavor creates a framework for students' future coursework in the sciences by discussing what science is and how it is done. Presenting all of the major topics and basic underpinnings of science in a clear, simplified manner, the book provides a generic view that isn't tied to any specific discipline. Students develop "scientific literacy" that will help them better understand and appreciate their mainstream science courses.
