The Sciences

Science classes

At Straight A’s we have tutors that specialise in the three main areas of science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology). We are able to offer tuition in these subjects at the secondary school level.

The nature of science includes four major contexts:

The Living World

This strand is about living things and how they interact with each other and the environment.

The Planet Earth and Beyond

This strand is about interconnecting systems and processes of the Earth, the other parts of the solar system, and the universe beyond.

The Physical World

This strand provides explanations for a wide range of physical phenomena, including light, sound, heat, electricity, magnetism, waves, forces, and motion, united by the concept of energy, which is transformed from one form to another without loss.

The Material World

This strand involves the study of matter and the changes it undergoes. Students develop an understanding of the compositions and properties of matter, the changes it undergoes, and the energy involved.
