Civilizations require rules of law. From Hammurabi’s Code to the U.S. Constitution, laws provide the guidelines for what will not be tolerated in the community and how to deal with those who break the laws. In this way, laws appear immutable. Laws in science and math also guide human understanding of our world. Live Science explains, “In general, a scientific law is the description of an observed phenomenon. It doesn't explain why the phenomenon exists or what causes it. The explanation of a phenomenon is called a scientific theory.” From Newton’s Laws to mathematical theorems, we are bound to the rules of the natural world. But are all laws immutable? The U.S. Constitution can be amended. The Supreme Court interprets the Constitution differently, depending on the make-up of the Court at any given time. Even laws and principles in science bend when evaluated at high levels. In today’s climate, Supreme Court cases and precedents are being questioned. Cultures change. These are thought-provoking questions with which to engage your students. Here at Maps101, we want to help students make connections with their changing world through our enriching content!
