Stories of science are filled with eureka moments—from Archimedes’ bath to Newton’s apple—but the scientific method or procedure of discovery also includes false starts and mistakes that are essential to longer-term success. The scientific method is characterised by the systematic observation, measurement and experiment as well as the formulation, testing and modification of hypotheses – for which critical analysis and thinking form a central part of the process.
