Shuttling Between the Particular and the General: Reflections on the Role of Conjecture and Hypothesis in the Generation of Knowledge in Science and Mathematics
Computer technology is perceived to offer a lot not just in the urge for character development and skills honing, but in the attempt to construct general knowledge. In the establishment of particular and general themes in science and mathematics education, the use of microcomputer software together with its principles is highly propagated. The problems on teaching can be resolved by the combination and the in-depth examination of perceptions and conceptions of natural phenomena. This is the interplay between the specific details and the general information of observable facts and occurrences. From these, recognition of the interconnections between and among variables as well as creation of multifaceted scientific models will be accomplished. The learning process does not end here because the enterprise of understanding is a never-ending endeavor of formulating explanations. The two succeeding chapters will present these abstractions concretely.
