Preface
This piece of writing is a guide which consists of generic scientific questions for
scientific thinkers. These generic questions are based on the properties which allow us
to study anything systematically. The questions which are systematically designed can
guide students to study anything systematically. For teachers, this provides a Simple
Unified Instructional System (SUIS) to guide students to study anything systematically.
For students, this is a scientific thinking supplement to any textbook for any science
course. Teachers can use this to design science instruction, assignments, and tests.
Students can use this to improve their perspective in any domain of science.
Systematic generic scientific thinking skills apply to all sciences. For example,
scientific thinkers are clear as to the purpose at hand and the question at issue. They
question information, conclusions, and points of view. They strive to be accurate,
precise, and relevant. They seek to think beneath the surface, to be logical, and
objective. They apply these skills to their reading and writing as well as to their
speaking and listening. They apply them in professional and personal life.
When this guide is used as a supplement to the science textbook in multiple
courses, students begin to perceive the application of scientific thinking to many
domains in everyday life. And if their instructors provide examples of the application
of scientific thinking to daily life, students begin to see scientific thinking as a tool for
improving the quality of their lives.
If you are a student using this guide, get in the habit of carrying it with you to
every science class. Consult it frequently in analyzing and synthesizing what you are
learning. Aim for deep internalization of the principles you find in this - until using
them becomes second nature.
If successful, this guide will serve faculty, students, and the science program
simultaneously. This work is based on the Simple Unified Instructional System
developed by Intellectual Development Foundation. This piece of writing is not
organized into chapters. Every page illustrates how different things can questioned
exhaustively with systematic generic scientific questions.

Excellence in scientific thinking must be cultivated systematically.
