Human Science Research Task

Post details about your research tasks: Example from Natural sciences: Research Question How will the eruption of volcanoes impact the Earth’s condition? Hypothesis If volcanoes erupted more frequently, then this will create a warming and cooling effect on the earth, because when volcanoes erupt, they emit a mixture of gases and particles into the air. Some […]

Math: Discovered or invented Reflection + presentation link

Link to Math invented/discovered presentation: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1DltyHILa6Q1mNDYUoPNNHSCDgeyOx7qc02Xnyjwy__Q/edit?usp=sharing In your opinion, in which (if any) other AOKs does it make sense to also ask the question of discovered/invented? In my opinion, the AOK of science perpetrates the question of being discovered or invented. This is seen through the two examples of the creation of a metallic hydrogen and […]

Math Scope

  What is the difference between a conjecture and a theorem? In the context of mathematics, the difference between a conjecture and a theorem is that a conjecture is a statement that a subject believes that holds true for a reason. This reason could be due to evidence from experiments that proves it to be […]

Art and Beauty

Do you think that theories such as the elements and principles of design or the Darwinian explanation of art proposed by Dutton mean that beauty is not in the eye of the beholder? Provide claims with examples in support of this KQ, and counter-claims and examples. The commonly heard phrase of “beauty is in the eye of […]

What is Art

Outline a clear argument in support (claim, explain, evidence) Outline a clear counter-argument ((claim, explain, evidence) Claim: Unlike The Arts, Science tells us something valuable about the world. Deconstructing the claim: This claim states that Science informs us something that can add value to our lives, while the Arts cannot, as they both contrast with each other […]

Science vs Pseudoscience

It is unsurprising when we hear that experts in Art can’t always agree what ‘is’ and ‘is not’ Art. We might say that the distinction between what ‘is’, and what ‘is not’ art, is not always clear. Similar to the question of what is art, the distinction between science and pseudoscience is also not clear. […]

Intro to NS

Reflecting on our discussions in class, and with inspiration from the TED video, what distinguishes Natural Science from other AOKs? The natural sciences do differ from other AOKs for its specific properties. Natural Science is different from other AOKs as it is a wide-ranging area of knowledge that has overlaps with the human sciences as […]

Faith and Intuition

Distinguish faith and intuition as WOKs. Faith defines as having absolute trust or confidence in something/someone. A common misconception is that faith has to involve religion when this is not the case. Faith simply indicates a close affiliation or belief in some entity, organisation or even a movement. For example, having faith in certain politicians or […]
