The "EUREKA" or "AHA!" method to learning. Creating the meaning and understanding of learning.
Hiero II requested that Archimedes find a method for determining whether a crown was pure gold or alloyed with silver.  When he stepped into a bath he realized that a given weight of gold would displace less water than an equal weight of silver; at this point he shouted, "EUREKA" (I have found it!). Discovery Learning is based on the "Aha!" method.
