The Historiography on Robert Boyle: Was Boyle the Progenitor of Modern Science?
Students participate in a warm-up activity by attending a football match writing an account of who won the game. They discuss how their account could differ from someone else's account of the game. They discuss how different people's interpretations compares to historiography. They read three different accounts about Boyle and answer questions about their similarities and differences. They follow up with studying Newton and comparing him to Boyle.
