Ch 26: OAE - Integrated Science: Weather

About This Chapter

This chapter of our OAE Integrated Science study guide will help you review for the weather section of your upcoming exam. The chapter features engaging video lessons with short quizzes that will help you pass the exam.

OAE Integrated Science: Chemical Cycling & Human Activities - Chapter Summary

Recall the differences between weather and climate as well as the key characteristics of both. This chapter covers the different variables affecting weather and explores the various types of extreme weather. The lessons will help you review:

  • What affects wind
  • Air masses
  • Weather forecasting
  • Weather fronts and their different types
  • Causes and effects of tornadoes, cyclones, hurricanes, floods, thunderstorms, and tsunamis

These lessons will help you review in a fun and interesting way. The quizzes are also in the same format as the OAE Integrated Science exam. You will have ample practice with the addressing the types of questions you will see on your exam.

OAE Integrated Science: Chemical Cycling & Human Activities Chapter Objectives

The computer-based OAE Integrated Science exam will assess your knowledge with four domains: earth and space science, life science, physical science, and the nature of science. Each one has a range of attached competencies. This chapter links to the earth and space science domain which accounts for 19% of the 150 multiple-choice questions.
