The first lesson in Nuclear Chemistry and Worksheets is to come up with a working hypothesis for the experiment. Every experiment has a hypothesis, it is an assumption that can be tested and that by testing that we can learn.
Learning is about testing. It is about asking questions. And then being willing to answer those questions.
Now for Nuclear Chemistry Worksheet: From what information do you know about the material? How are you going to test that information? By starting with a working hypothesis and a question and then testing your hypothesis by asking additional questions. You don’t learn by just asking questions.
You must also come up with a question to ask. Then you need to ask questions. Doing so requires a large part of your brain, and it also involves being willing to ask more questions.
Asking question is important because if you don’t ask questions, you won’t learn. Only when you ask and answer your own questions will you learn how to understand your own material, and only then will you be able to develop a working hypothesis.
To encourage people to ask more questions about their materials and for them to learn, I used the following formula for encouraging questioners and encourage them to answer their own question. I call it a “Worksheet”Teaser” because that is how the whole process works.
Use the Worksheet and give a question. Or make the question something like “You may be using a material that has never been tested. Can you describe what you think the type of material that was used could be and explain if it is possible to do that?” A: It isn’t possible to do that.
You could come up with your own version of the Worksheet as a teaser. Then anyone who asked a question would have already used a Worksheet Teaser and had answered their own question by answering the very next question in the Worksheet.
