The Progression of Inquiry is the Process of the Scientific Method
Science is a way of looking at the world.
Model making is the common language used in the practice of science.  Staged model making or "The Progression of Inquiry" is central to the process of modern science. 
The critical-thinking practices that science depends upon are supported by three linked stages of model making.  These are the:
    1.  Formation of DESCRIPTIVE models that capture observations,
    2.  Generation of EXPLANATORY models that contain the proposed relationships  or hypotheses that explain the system,
    3.  Creation of EXPERIMENTAL models that test the predictions produced by the explanatory model by experiment.
