How to study science?


Science should be studied like anything else to start with - memorize the terms and definitions, take good notes, and learn how things work. One part of science that is more similar to math is to be sure you work out the problems and do the experiments so that you will really understand what is going on. Science is based on facts learned from experiment - what we understand depends on what we can study, and science is always changing as our ability to study the world increases. Look at your notes and write them down so you know the them in your head.

Any comments?
