6/15/2018 MyGED® : Study Guide 3/19 Reading for Meaning in Science 1 Claims and evidence in science You'll be presented with science passages and be asked to: Find evidence that supports a finding Make sense of information that differs between various science sources Science readings often discuss theories or draw conclusions from evidence that is presented. You should be able to read science passages and identify the evidence that supports the theory, principle, or conclusion that has been drawn. For example, global climate change is a science topic that is frequently discussed in the news. Articles about this topic generally present evidence as to how humans either are or are not responsible for the changing climate. It's important for you to be able to read something about climate change and identify the evidence that the authors cite to support their conclusions. Example Questions Claims and evidence in science Two chemists are designing instant hot and cold packs for a sports medicine supply company. Their design uses chemicals that react with water to either heat up or cool down the water inside the packs. They are investigating the reaction of ammonium chloride with water to determine whether it is exothermic or endothermic.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
