My face doesn't really show it but I am so pissed right now, science has far too few eureka moments and far too many "WTF, I'm a dumbass" moments. And I hate using freaking radioactivity, especially when at the end of it my sample isn't freaking radioactive! I put myself at risk for mutant babies* and I don't even get a single tiny band on my autorad?! Bollocks. For FGR: Aren't we all nerds? ETA: Did you all hear that? The echoing sound of my forehead slap as I realised my mistake? I have to do a little experiment to figure out whether I'm right or not but hottdamnit, I'm dumb sometimes. http://www.flickr.com/photos/misplacedpom/2762273463/ *Not really, all necessary precautions were taken to prevent any future X-men-like offspring.

  • Explanations are rarely a part of classroom practice (Kuhn, 1993; Newton, Driver & Osborne 1999). Students have difficulty using appropriate evidence (Sandoval & Reiser, 1997) and including the backing for why they chose the evidence (Bell & Linn, 2000) in their written explanations. During classroom discourse, discussions tend to be dominated by claims with little backing to support their claims (Jiménez-Aleixandre, Rodríguez & Duschl, 2000).
