A theory is an idea system with a lot of evidence to support it--for example, the theory of evolution. A law (in science) is an idea system with proof attached to it--no contradictions--example, the law of gravitation.
A theory, when proven over time, can become a law. Example: Law of Gravity and Theory of Evolution
it is a example of a law that can't be proven by science
If new evidence or observations falsify a scientific theory, the theory must be changed to adapt to the new data or discarded altogether. The discoverer of the falsification usually publishes his or her results in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, through which the information is presented to the scientific community. Theories are not "official," but they instead rely on consensus and an understanding of the evidence involved and the scientific method. Usually, however, since a hypothesis must be tested rigorously in order to be accepted as theory, the existing theory needs only to be modified or expanded, and not discarded entirely.
The difference between theory and natural law is that a theory is a framework, while a natural law is a single rule, usually expressed in mathematics. They are not two different stages of acceptance among scientists (as it is sometimes claimed in error); they are two completely different things; a theory does not evolve into a law with when sufficient evidence for a theory has been gathered for example. For example consider: The Theory of Special Relativity <-- Theory Speed of light is constant <-- Law Theory of Electromagnetism <-- Theory Divergence of the Magnetic field is zero <-- Law Quantum Field Theory <-- Theory Conservation of Energy <-- Law
how consensus is related to education
According to my interviewee: there so many instances that affect my work by conflict and consensus theory In Consensus Theory, for example i have a students that are hard to speak straight tagalog and hard to adapt the new environment because he/she was came from province, so I'm the one who make more adjustment. In Conflict Theory, for example you a have a students that are rich and also you have a students that are not too rich, all the favors of you was only at your students which is rich. In this situation there is a inequality between the the students because in conflict theory the more you richer the more you have the power, it is all about class conflict.
Majority consensus male but of course only theory.
Social disorganization theory dr
there three elements for attribution they are:- 1. Distinctiveness 2. Consensus and 3. Consistency
1. One difference between conflict and consensus theories is that conflict theories stresses that people are disadvantaged because of many things which includes class, gender, social class and wealth, where consensus theories focus on believing that society functions by all parts working interpedently together.
Plate tectonics is considered to be a unifying theory because a consensus finds it to be true. Most scientists believe the plate tectonics cause volcanoes and earthquakes.
Functionalism and conflict theory
Adolf Hitler is an example of the force theory
