How much risk? : a guide to understanding environmental health hazards by Inge F Goldstein( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How Much Risk? illustrates how scientists investigate controversial issues such as high rates of breast cancer attributed to pesticides, cancer clusters near toxic waste dumps and nuclear plants, and the recent worldwide increase in asthma. It explains in lay language the technical terms often appearing in news stories or government reports, such as statistical significance, ionizing radiation, and biological markers. It also describes how scientists distinguish a real cluster of disease from a chance event, the interaction of genetic predisposition and environment in disease, and how radiation can cause some types of cancer."--Jacket
The experience of science : an interdisciplinary approach by Martin Goldstein( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and Hungarian and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our earlier book, How We Know: An Exploration of the Scientific Process, was written to give some conception of what the scientific approach is like, how to recognize it, how to distinguish it from other approaches to understanding the world, and to give some feeling for the intellectual excitement and aesthetic satisfactions of science. These goals represented our concept of the term "scientific literacy." Though the book was written for the general reader, to our surprise and gratification it was also used as a text in about forty colleges, and some high schools, for courses in science for the non-scientist, in methodology of science for social and behavioral sciences, and in the philosophy of science. As a result we were encouraged to write a textbook with essentially the same purpose and basic approach, but at a level appropriate to college students. We have drawn up problems for those chapters that would benefit from them, described laboratory experiments that illustrate important points discussed in the text, and made suggestions for additional readings, term papers, and other projects. Throughout the book we have introduced a number of chapters and appendices that provide examples of the uses of quantitative thinking in the sciences: logic, math ematics, probability, statistics, and graphical representation
