Before the day of the exam, be sure to test your knowledge of science, technology and society by taking self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam. Utilizing these resources can boost your confidence as you prepare for the test.
1. How Science Has Changed Society
Without science, our modern world just wouldn't be the same. The way we travel, shop, learn, socialize, eat, work, and play is possible because of scientific influences and innovations. Take a look around, and you'll see science pretty much everywhere!
2. Scientific Inquiry vs. Technological & Engineering Design
In this lesson, we will describe the similarities and differences between the scientific inquiry process and the technological and engineering design process.
3. Using Technology in Scientific Experiments & Analysis
How is technology used in scientific experiments? How is it used to analyze data? Learn about how science and technology are related, and then take a quiz to see what you've picked up.
4. Reasoning in Mathematics: Inductive and Deductive Reasoning
Many people think that deductive and inductive reasoning are the same thing. It is assumed these words are synonymous. They are not. This lesson reveals the reality of these two types of reasoning.
5. Graphing Basic Functions
Graphs are just like maps - when you know the language! Review how locations have x and y coordinates similar to latitude and longitude, and how to plot points in the Cartesian plane.
6. Solving Mathematical Problems Using Estimation
Estimating is a method of calculating a result that is close to, but not exactly, the correct answer to a math problem. Why would you ever need to do this? This lesson reviews estimating and answers the question as to why you would do it.
