From the Paper:

"The concept of understanding any subject usually begins with objective or subjective information. Consequently the topic of the art and science of teaching is a combination of the two. Aside from theories art has many diverse definitions that include "a system of principles and methods employed in performance of a set of activities" and "a trade or craft that applies such a system of principles and methods" (internet source, 2005). Furthermore, Science is primarily defined as "methodological activity, discipline or study" as well as "knowledge, especially that gained through experience" (internet source, 2005). How do these definitions relate to the efforts of educational instruction?"
