Teachers' Resource Material for Integrated Science: Ideas for Teaching Integrated Science in Secondary Schools. Series of Caribbean Volunteer Publications, No. 8.
Voluntary Services Overseas, Castries (St. Lucia).
This book contains questions for secondary school science students that require them to analyze data presented in various forms and apply knowledge and skills developed in novel situations. The content for the questions is derived from a science curriculum developed by a group of Caribbean nations. The material is organized into four sections: (1) integrated science; (2) chemistry; (3) physics; and (4) biology. The exercises are helpful in preparing students to take standardized tests in science as they can be used to reinforce practical work related to a topic covered in the booklet, teach general skills of data analysis and observation, and provide an alternative means of skill development. The approach recommended for each problem situation includes a discussion of the experimental design and details of the experiment that produced the data. (DDR)
