  Science
Science covers the broad field of knowledge that deals with observed facts and the relationships among those facts.
Science also differs from other types of knowledge in that scientific progress depends on new ideas expanding or replacing old ones.
The term applied science is sometimes used to refer to scientific research that concentrates on the development of technology.

 What is Science?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Science, in contrast, is the attempt to reach demonstrable, replicable, conclusions about the natural world (and social science is the corresponding attempt to reach demonstrable conclusions about the social or human world).
Science and religion are very different, both in what they try to do and in the approaches they use to accomplish their goals.

 P   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Ignorance of the present understanding of the nature of science (constructivist viewpoint) might have prevented students from opportunities to discuss issues related to their daily lives and it might have led students to adopt the traditional view about science that is consistent with the positivist position towards science.
Science students, who are the subject of the present study, take mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology over three years as well as other common subjects.
Ryan and Aikenhead (1992) argued that, presently, science educators shifted from the impersonal, scientistic, and socially sterile depiction of science that is emphasized by the traditional view towards the contemporary view that is based on a history/philosophy approach.

 Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science, at the St. John's campus only, offers a wide range of programs, all of which are intended to be challenging, are dedicated to the evolution of computer science, and attempt to strike a balance between the study of hardware, software, theory and practice.
The computer science and mathematics course requirements are the same for students in either faculty, with the main differences being in the core requirements for each degree and the student's choice of electives at the more advanced level.
Students who continue on to the honours program have the opportunity to broaden and deepen their knowledge in computer science, and are exposed to research activity in the discipline, under the supervision of a faculty member.

 Science in The Industrial Revolution   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
It is but a small circle of scholars who have ventured to specify those instances in which “science” made identifiable contributions to the industrial technology of this period, and even such modest claims as these individuals have made have not gone unchallenged by criticism of the use of the word science in this particular context.
The modern definition of science is the one which demands algebraic formulae offering design parameters and predictions of the performance of industrial techniques and which thereby finds virtually no expression in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century industrial technologies.
The case for science in British industry rests heavily upon other Fellows, as well, for the participation of early industrialists in the Royal Society is a major emphasis of the argument by identification.

 Jack Yellott's Dates   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The roots of modern visual science reach back twenty-five centuries to the earliest Greek writers: Polyak's (1957) account of this history is especially recommended.
The problem was finally resolved in the early part of the 17th century by Kepler's theoretical explanation of the optics of the eye (1604), followed by Christopher Scheiner's direct experimental demonstration that an optical image is indeed formed on the inside rear wall of the eyeball (1625).
The dates in the chronology of major events in visual science from 1600 to 1960 are taken from a number of secondary sources (which sometimes disagree), and should probably be regarded as accurate to within roughly a decade.

 HSCI 216: Printer Friendly Syllabus
Although science is thought to produce "objective" knowledge, some critics claim that the basic assumptions and methods of science are so gender-biased that scientific "objectivity" is compromised.
We first study how science in the 18th and 19th centuries constructed and defined the "female," and also how those developments gradually led to the virtual exclusion of women from research by 1800.
We are then ready to consider the "science question in feminism," or how and why feminist theories critique science.
