Objectives of the GACE Physics: Science & Society Chapter
The material covered in this chapter relates to the Scientific Inquiry, Processes, Technology and Society subarea of the Test II portion of the GACE Physics exam (28% of Test II). It is designed to confirm and enhance your existing knowledge as well as introduce you to new or unfamiliar concepts that will be tested on the GACE Physics assessments.
Both Test I and II will assess your knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts based on a 6-12 comprehension level of physics in order to determine your teaching ability and eligibility to teach middle or high school science courses in the state of Georgia. You may use our self-assessment quizzes provided at the end of each lesson to test your comprehension of the information covered on the exam and also to give you insight to the style of questions you'll actually see on the day of the test.
1. Science in the Mass Media
Learn about the importance of the mass media to communicate scientific discoveries and the many issues with how that communication happens. See how well you understand by taking a quiz.
2. The Advance of Science & Technology Since 1945: Developments & Impact
Since the end of World War II in 1945, there have been countless advancements in science and technology. This lesson will provide examples from the different areas of advancement, such as communication, transportation, and computers.
3. Similarities Among Systems in Mathematics, Science & Technology
How do the concepts of balance and equilibrium extend throughout science and mathematics? How does solving algebraic equations parallel chemical equilibrium within a solution? See how crucial balance is in our universe as well as how mathematics is used to describe these constant equilibriums.
