Models and the Nature of Science Last week we reviewed our model of charged and uncharged material objects. We used it to predict and explain all of the behavior we observed when we allowed such objects to interact with each other in different situations. Part of the reason for studying those situations was, of course, to learn something specifically about how electric interactions between such objects work in our Universe. It is important not to overlook another reason for studying them. It is because the process of developing our explanations illustrates very general and powerful ideas about the nature of science and scientific practice. These are as or more important to learn about and to convey to your students as the specific things we use science to learn about. We’ll get to see these big ideas in action again as we review the construction of the model of magnetic materials and magnetized objects that we’ve been developing recently.
