Mixon's way of engaging the students in the initial problem encourages them to develop a hypothesis. He doesn't give them all of the information...they need to figure out a system of collecting data, how to deal with additional variables, etc. This is effective because they are forced to think critically about the experiment to make it successful. They are not just shown the path. Mixon also reiterates prior concepts that have been covered in class. He really utilizes the spiral curriculum theory...which allows more abstract thinking to develop.
