WEST Chemistry: Interdisciplinary Relationships in Science Objectives
The Washington Educator Skills Tests - Endorsements (WEST-E): Chemistry exam is a 2.5-hour computer-based certification exam used to award chemistry endorsements to educators wanting to teach chemistry in the state of Washington. When you take this exam, you will be asked 110 multiple-choice questions designed to assess your understanding of chemistry. Eighteen percent of the material covered in this exam will belong to the content domain of Scientific Processes and Inquiry. Complete these lessons to prepare for questions about the interdisciplinary nature of science which you will likely see in this content domain.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. The Advance of Science & Technology Since 1945: Developments & Impact
