  • 4. 2.As pressureincreases,density increases
  • 5. 3.As temperatureincreases, densitydecreases
  • 6. 4.Water expandswhen it freezes
  • 7. 5.Most changes in nature are cyclic.cyclic changes are predictable (theyhappen over and over.)ex: tides, the movement of celestial(space) objects, the seasons, earth’smovements are cyclic

  • 152. 112.Check your test a second time, butonly change an answer if you find anobvious mistake. Your first choice isusually correct.
  • 153. 113.Look up formulas, even if you thinkyou know them.Substitute information from the questioninto the formula. They are on the frontpage of the reference tables.
  • 154. 114.Skip over hard questions that arestumping you. Go back to them later.Something else in the test may give you aclue to the harder problems.I don’t care if you don’t get EVERY answer right.Just get MOST of them right!
