Questioning and Posing Problems



The formulation of a problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advances. –Albert Einstein

It is never going to be wrong to question something, either an experiment or problems we have to face during our life times. As a student, we should keep questioning the things we learned and the things we don’t understand. In our lab report rubric, “evaluation” is an example of questioning and posing problems; what are the reasons that we can’t finish the experiment successfully, or what are some good solutions for your next experiment. I really like one quote, which is “learning through questioning”. When you ever finish an unit, you may create a question and question your-self, are you able to answer it?

In our science class, I am not a good example who often time asks a lot of questions, but my friend En ping does. Personally I think that he understands by questioning the teacher and knowing the correct answer is a good study strategy. I do too, but because of “shyness”. I missed a lot of chances of asking the teacher and really getting the knowledge. In the future of my study life, I will ask more and able to learn more.
