Observe, explain, experiment, and share: these are the four steps of the scientific method. This fact-filled volume explores this “process for gathering information about the world,” from its origins to its many uses, which span from chemistry and biology to forensics and recipe-making. Primary source excerpts from scientists Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, and Carl Sagan; fact boxes; and “Explore Online” sections pose questions and introduce topics for further exploration. Diagrams and captioned photos illustrate the text. Back matter includes a time line, suggested ways to try out the scientific method in the real world, “Stop and Think” questions, a glossary, additional reading and a link to publisher-approved Web sites, and an index.

Series Review
Finely tuned to the needs and methods of a CCSS-based curriculum, these explanations of some aspect of the physical world intersperse a main text with recaps and review or study questions every few pages. All the titles close not only with leads to somewhat more detailed resources, but also several open-ended concepts for consideration and suggestions for enhancement activities. The narra-tives are divided into easily manageable sections, and the clean design incorporates informative, crisply reproduced, captioned photos; reproductions; diagrams; and graphics. Sidebars often include short but substantial passages from primary-source documents with the requisite analytical glosses and questions to test comprehension. The volume on the history and uses (in and outside the lab) of the scientific method are particularly valuable.
