Lower Secondary Science consists of three segments – Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The requirements of the three different sciences are generally different, and students often feedback that they particularly dislike or like one of the sciences due to various reasons.
Learning the 3 Lower Secondary Sciences Together
For instance, many lower secondary science students find Biology more interesting as some Biology topics such as ecology seems more relatable and applicable to our daily lives; however, the downside of it is that it is more content-intensive and they might found it hard to regurgitate them. Therefore, the tip to scoring in the Biology segment would definitely be to keep the students’ interests in learning life science while equipping them with simple methods to remember the contents.
In comparison, students may find Physics to be dull initially as it contains more formulas for topics such Electricity and Moments. More mistakes are usually made in these topics simply because they have yet to understand the basic concepts as well as the proper use of the formulas. Therefore, the key to mastering Physics for lower secondary science students is to bring in real physical examples that can be encountered in daily lives in order to firm up their concepts. As such, the students can not only learn from the coaches but also through themselves.
Lastly, for Chemistry, the students will be introduced to topics such as atoms, molecules and ions which they have not been exposed before. Hence, it would be challenging for them to comprehend the topics as they cannot visualize and relate them to our daily lives. Therefore, the key to excel in Chemistry would be to enhance their understanding through the means of visuals.
