When we think of science and maths, stereotypical visions of lab coats, test-tubes, and formulae often spring to mind.
But more important than these stereotypes are the methods that underpin the work scientists do - namely generating and systematically testing hypotheses. A key part of this is critical thinking.
Itís a skill that often feels in short supply these days, but you donít necessarily need to study science or maths in order gain it. Itís time to take critical thinking out of the realm of maths and science and broaden it into studentsí general education.
