How Science Works

How Science Works

Does Vitamin C benefit health? Can dogs identify criminal suspects by smell? Why are frogs in trouble? How do animals find stored food? What causes cancer? Why do we age? How does coffee affect health? How will climate change affect the spread of disease? How Science Works describes how scientists answer questions like these by experimenting, using comparative observations and mathematical models, analyzing causes, and integrating results of multiple studies. Through such examples, readers will discover the excitement of thinking critically about scientific questions.
