Learning Science Concepts Through An Innovative Teaching- Learning Technique- The BRIDGE MAP

Learning science is fun. A good teacher makes the learning a lifetime experience. Science becomes interesting so far it is imparted with practical, every day connect. In the last few decades, we have witnessed a great breakthrough in the way science concepts are taught and learnt. Science learning is no more a bookish affair. AContinue reading “Learning Science Concepts Through An Innovative Teaching- Learning Technique- The BRIDGE MAP”

Why is ‘Cell’ called the fundamental unit of life and why its boundary line- the ‘Plasma Membrane’ so important?

Just as the basic unit of all non-living things is ‘ Atom’, the basic unit of all living organisms is ‘Cell’. PS- The atom is still very smaller than the cell. Now, the standard definition of the Cell says that “cell is the basic structural and functional unit of living organisms”. By the word “structural”Continue reading “Why is ‘Cell’ called the fundamental unit of life and why its boundary line- the ‘Plasma Membrane’ so important?”

Is heating of liquids and gases, and empty spaces (vacuum) same as solids?

We have seen in nature that solids, liquids and gases, and empty spaces become hot when they are heated. But, to our surprise, they all get heated by different ways. The simple reason behind this difference is the fact that arrangement of particles in all these differ. In solids, particles are very tightly packed. InContinue reading “Is heating of liquids and gases, and empty spaces (vacuum) same as solids?”

Have you ever thought how the phenomenon of “Conduction” helps in cooking, measuring temperatures, protection from cold etc?

Be it cooking, use of insulators, temperature measurement by thermometer, protection of body from cold, hot fomentation or any other such phenomenon, it all involves transfer of heat. Heat is also transferred in boiling water or by a room heater to the surrounding air or by sun’s rays to our body. But, in these cases,Continue reading “Have you ever thought how the phenomenon of “Conduction” helps in cooking, measuring temperatures, protection from cold etc?”

Refraction- The Unique Way Of Perceiving Light Rays By ‘Lenses’(Technique used- Ray diagrams)

At a glance, we may feel that lenses (example- magnifying glass) and plane mirrors (example- looking mirror) are more or less the same, as both are made of glass. But, the two are very different from each other, when we consider their properties as regards their behaviour towards light rays. Outwardly, the basic difference betweenContinue reading “Refraction- The Unique Way Of Perceiving Light Rays By ‘Lenses’(Technique used- Ray diagrams)”

The Curious World Of Reflection (Technique used- Ray diagrams)

We, practically every day, see our reflection in the mirror and have always wondered how we get our reflection or image in the mirror. It almost looks like a magic, when we see our image doing exactly the same actions what we actually do in front of the mirror. In this blog, we will decipher,Continue reading “The Curious World Of Reflection (Technique used- Ray diagrams)”

Cracking The “Periodic Table Of Elements” Using Mnemonic Technique

As a student, I found it very difficult to memorise the Periodic Table Of Elements in Chemistry course. Periodic table has been very cautiously designed, considering or arranging all the elements, that exist on the earth, in the increasing order of their Atomic Numbers. Elements have been recognised ROW-WISE which are called PERIODS (1 toContinue reading “Cracking The “Periodic Table Of Elements” Using Mnemonic Technique”

Why children are not the exact copies of their parents? (Technique used- Simplified Definitions)

Conventionally, we feel that a child should look exactly like his parents since he inherits 50% of his genetic material from father and 50% from his mother. The siblings, too, should look alike. But the reality is that, you the child may look quite like his parents, somewhat similar, or totally different. The same holdsContinue reading “Why children are not the exact copies of their parents?

Easy-Way-To-Understand Science Concepts Using Controlled Experiment Technique

The most tangible way to comprehend science concepts is ‘learning by doing’. It has been very well said by Confucius – I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. The pragmatic approach for learning science rudiments is by conducting experiments, starting from simpler Hands-on to Lab. experiments. So,Continue reading “Easy-Way-To-Understand Science Concepts Using Controlled Experiment Technique”

Knowing The ‘Virus’ To Understand The Ongoing Pandemic Better (technique used- diagrams)

Viruses have always been the focal point of concern for man because of their great infectivity, great numbers in which they exist, ultramicroscopic size, ever-changing genetic nature due to mutations etc and their status /existence (living or nonliving). In this blog, we will try to shed some light on various aspects of virus viz. structure,Continue reading “Knowing The ‘Virus’ To Understand The Ongoing Pandemic Better (technique used- diagrams)”
