Introduction to Science 3.1 : Exploring Physical Science

  1. 1. The World of Physical Science<br />6th grade<br />Introduction to science<br />
  2. 2. Table of Contents:<br />Section 1 : Exploring Physical Science<br />Section 2 : Scientific Method<br />Section 3 : Scientific Models<br />Section 4 : Tools, Measurement, and Safety<br />
  3. 3. Introduction to Science<br />Chapter 3.1<br />Exploring Physical science<br />
  4. 4. Objectives:<br />Explainthat science involves asking questions.<br />Describe the relationship of matter and energy to physical science.<br />Describe the two branches of physical science.<br />Identifythree areas of science that use physical science.<br />
  5. 5. That’s Science!<br />Science <br />Process of gathering knowledge about the natural world.<br />Everyday Science<br />Learning to do everyday actions requires:<br />making observations and asking questions, which is what science is all about.<br />
  6. 6. Physical science<br />study of matter and energy<br />Matter is the “stuff” everything is made of.<br />Energyis the ability to do work.<br />What is Physical Science?<br />
  7. 7. A Study of Matter and Energy<br />Learning about matter and energy will help you answer questions such as:<br />Why will paper burn and gold will not?<br />Why is throwing a bowling ball harder than throwing a baseball?<br />How can water turn into steam and back into water?<br />
  8. 8. Branches of Physical Science:<br />Physical science is usually divided into:<br />Chemistry––A Matter of Reactions!<br />The study of all forms of matter, including how matter interacts with matter.<br />Physics––A Matter of Energy!<br />Looks mostly at energy and the way that energy affects matter.<br />
  9. 9. Other related sciences:<br />Meteorology<br />The study of the Earth’s atmosphere, especially in relation to weather and climate, is called meteorology.<br />Meteorologists must understand high and low pressure, motion, and force before the can predict the weather.<br />
  10. 10. Geology<br />The study of the origin, history, and structure of Earth.<br />Geochemist are geologists who apply their knowledge of heat, force, and chemistry to understand how rocks and soil change over time.<br />
  11. 11. Biology <br />The study of life. Chemistry and physics explain many things that happen in biology.<br />A chemical reaction explains how animals use sugar and oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and water and to release energy.<br />
