Why do scientist use the SI metric standard measurement system? This question exploration asks the Essential Question: What are SI Metric Measurements in STEM Fields
Question Exploration Routine is an instructional methods that teachers can use to help a diverse student population understand a body of content information by carefully answering a critical question to arrive at a main idea answer. Students taught using the question exploration routine earned higher total test scores than did students taught using the lecture-discussion method.
