Students' Relative Interest in Selected Science Categories
Palmer, Glenn A.
School Science and Mathematics, 77, 6, 477-83, Oct 77

Students tended to rank earth-space and biological sciences ahead of the physical sciences. Reasons for this included inventory bias, maturational development, and a teacher effect. (MA)
