COMPARATIVE EFFECT OF CO-OPERATIVE LEARNING STRATEGY AND INQUIRY BASED METHOD IN THE LEARNING OF CHEMISTRY AMONG SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN NIGERIA

ABSTRACTScience may be viewed as a way of questioning or verifying the truthfulness of knowledge. It also can be said to be the knowledge which is obtained through careful and systematic observation and testing of facts. In fact, technology is the secret behind the development of many countries and nations. It is what is produced through science that is applied in technology for the comfort of man. Therefore, the elementary idea(s) of scientific and technological knowledge’s are introduced ...

Effect Of Laboratory Classes On Motivation And Level Of Achievement In Physics In Nigerian Secondary Schools

This research study was intended to answer a number of basic questions within the given intent of evaluating the effectiveness of lectures with laboratory classes versus lectures alone in teaching higher hierarchies of physics to two sets of randomly sampled student groups, respectively, in Nigerian secondary schools. The following basic research questions were addressed in this study:1. How does the laboratory and lecture affect achievement in physics compared with lecture only mode of instr...

Relevance Of Physics Education Programmes Of Nigerian Higher Educational Institutions To The Teaching Of Senior Secondary Physics

LEARNERS’ BELIEFS & CONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE ROLE OF MATHEMATICS IN PHYSICS

ABSTRACTMathematics is an essential part of what we call physics. It plays an important role in physics research as well as in learning physics. It can be a useful tool or a barrier too high to overcome for some of our students. Only recently this aspect of learning physics has been given more attention. The study presented here makes a contribution to this field of research by providing a first view on students’ conceptions about the role of mathematics in (learning) physics. These beliefs...

The Impact of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) On Teaching and Learning of Physics

This study investigated the impact of information and communication technology on teaching and learning of physics. The respondents used for the study were one hundred and fifty-seven (157) physics students and two (2) physics teachers drawn randomly from two senior secondary schools from each of the five educational districts out of the six educational districts available in Lagos State. Three null hypotheses were postulated and tested at level of significant.The instruments used for the stu...

MEDICAL APPLICATION OF X-RAY IN OUR SOCIETY WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE IN TREATMENT OF CANCER

ABSTRACTX-ray is one of the strongest radiation therapy that uses high energy shrink tumors and kill cancerous cell.  The hard x-rays isotopes has sealed tiny pellets placed in patients body which when decayed naturally gives off radiation that damage the nearby cancer cell and the DNA of the molecules inside cells that carry genetic information.  This research which is based on the medical application of x-ray and treatment of cancer is very educative and will go a long way in educ...

SUN AS THE SOURCE OF SYNTHESIS OF ALL ELEMENTS

ABSTRACTThis term  focus is on the study of the sun as the source of synthesis in of all elements both known and unknown.  This work discusses the sun in details its life history and the parts as well as the elements produced in the sun.   There professional ideas, findings in their earlier works, are from the internet, library, textbooks, journals, articles from the source.   The work made it clear that the sun is a star where many elements are produced.   Also as th...

INVESTIGATE THE MICROBIAL CONTENT OF SOME BOLTED SOFT DRIVELS SOLD IN ENUGU INTERLOPES

ABSTRACTThis work was done in order to investigate the microbial content of some bolted soft drivels sold in Enugu interlopes. Soft drink are consumed in large quantities by the different age groups, adult and children of different class of people all over the state. This is aided by the general availability of these drink almost every place  roleve people gather for work or recreational activities. It is the appropriate to subject these soft drinks to some kind of investigation by isola...

THE USEFULNESS OF ORSAT GAS ANALYZER IN THE FIELD OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY AND HOW IT CAN BE ACHIEVED

ABSTRACT The principle of gas and vapour behaviour is very important in industrial.  The analysis of gases can be achieved by means of orsat gas apparatus. Orsat analysis involved the successive contaction of the gas with solution that preferentially absorbs one or more of the constituents. The usefulness of orsat gas apparatus his contributed tremendously to the development of science and technology.  The principles governing the operation of orsat apparatus has been appli...
