Throughout your study of science, you will learn a variety of terms, facts, figures, and concepts. Each new topic you encounter will provide its own collection of words and ideas--which, at times, you may think seem endless. But each of the ideas within a particular topic is related in some way to the others. No concept in science is isolated. Thus it will help you to understand the topic if you see the whole picture; that is, the interconnectedness of all the individual terms and ideas. This is a much more effective and satisfying way of learning than memorizing separate facts.

If you had been one of the early explorers or settlers of North America, you would have found many things in your new environment unknown to you. The handiest way of filling voids in your vocabulary would have been to ask local Native Americans what words they used. The early colonists began borrowing words from friendly Native Americans almost from the moment of their first contact, and many of those shared words have remained in our everyday language.

A book to learn about literature through short stories.
Each form of literature, called a genre, has its own characteristics. In this introduction, you can learn about the genres of literature. Prose is organized in sentences and paragraphs and does not have a regular rhythm. Fiction is prose writing that tells about imaginary characters and events. Nonfiction is prose writing that presents and explains ideas or that tells about real people, places, or events. * Poetry, whose sentences appear in lines that do not always extend across the page, often has a regular beat or rhythm. A short story is a brief form of prose fiction with characters, a setting, and a plot. It resembles longer forms of fiction in exploring an insight into life. Nonfiction is literature that deals with the real world. It tells the story of actual events or people and addresses the world of ideas. Poetry is literature written in verse. Because the form uses comparatively few words, poets choose highly concise and emotionally packed language to convey their ideas. In addition, poetry includes rhythm and rhyme to make the writing musical. Drama tells a story through the words and actions of actors who impersonate the characters on stage. In the text of a drama, the characters' words are called the dialogue.

To understand big ideas, scientists ask questions. The answers to those questions are like pieces of a puzzle. Each chapter in this book asks a big question to help you think about a big idea of science. By answering the big questions, you will get closer to understanding the big idea.
