Module 1 Physics: The Basic Science What this module is about The study of science has two branches namely, the life sciences and the physical sciences. The life sciences include biology, zoology and botany. The physical sciences branch into areas such as geology, astronomy, chemistry and physics. However, physics is more than part of physical sciences because it does not only deal with matter and energy but it also deals with the other basic concepts like motion, forces, heat, sound, light, electricity, magnetism and the composition of atoms. Science has different fields and yet physics is considered the basic science. Why do you think so? How does physics help improve our lives? How does physics help produce the different technologies that are introduced in society? How do physicists come up with the principles, theories, laws, and inventions, which are instrumental in providing the comforts of life? Do you want to be clarified on these questions? Then read and work on the activities presented in this module. Module 1 includes the following lessons: Lesson 1 - Nature of Physics Lesson 2 - Physics Connections: Technology and Society Lesson 3 - The Physicists: Their Role in Society Lesson 4 - Thinking Physics: The Scientific Method What you are expected to learn After going through this module, you are expected to: 1. describe the nature of physics and explain its relationship to other sciences; 2. relate physics to technology and society; 3. give some contributions of physicists and technologists; 4. use the scientific method to solve problems; 5. perform the activities systematically; and 1
