• Margins In the margins of your text, you will find many helpful resources. The Science Online exercises and Integrate activities help you explore the topics you are studying. MiniLabs reinforce the science concepts you have learned.

• Building Skills You also will find an Applying Math or Applying Science activity in each chapter. This gives you extra practice using your new knowledge, and helps prepare you for standardized tests.

• Student Resources At the end of the book you will find Student Resources to help you throughout your studies. These include Science, Technology, and Math Skill Handbooks, an English/Spanish Glossary, and an Index. Also, use your Foldables as a resource.

In Lab

Working in the laboratory is one of the best ways to understand the concepts you are studying. Your book will be your guide through your laboratory experiences, and help you begin to think like a scientist. In it, you not only will find the steps necessary to follow the investigations, but you also will find helpful tips to make the most of your time.

Each lab provides you with a Real-World Question to remind you that science is something you use every day, not just in class. This may lead to many more questions about how things happen in your world.

Remember, experiments do not always produce the result you expect. Scientists have made many discoveries based on investigations with unexpected results. You can try the experiment again to make sure your results were accurate, or perhaps form a new hypothesis to test.

Keeping a Science Journal is how scientists keep accurate records of observations and data. In your journal, you also can write any questions that may arise during your investigation. This is a great method of reminding yourself to find the answers later.
