General Science provides an introduction to four major areas in science—energy and matter, the living world, planet earth, and space. Students thus become acquainted with the basic ideas upon which a number of sciences are built, including Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Earth Science and Astronomy. Selected readings and science activities are suggested so that students may further their understanding.
Activities students do in completing this subject include using the concepts and knowledge gained in the course to explain new situations, interpreting information on maps and graphs, using the metric system of measurement, and summarizing the content of a current article on a scientific development. There are 7 examinations in General Science. Goldsmith, General Science, American School.
