Earth scientists study the earth and its characteristics. They investigate the far reaches of space, the depths of the oceans, and the interior of the earth.
The authors have developed a program that meets the needs of middle grades students, promotes science inquiry, and is aligned with the National Science Education Standards.
The study of economics begins with the idea that people cannot have everything they need and want. A need is something like air, food, or shelter that is necessary for survival. A want is an item that we desire but that is not essential to survival.
The choice you will make is rooted in economics. At its core, economics is the study of how people choose to use their limited resources. In this unit you'll read more about the tools that economics offers to help you make decisions as a buyer, seller, worker, and citizen.
High School) Economics: Principles in Action is a multi-dimensional program designed to help students of all abilities achieve fundamental understanding of core economic principles. Key concepts, based on the twenty content standards of the National Council on Economic Education (NCEE), are developed throughout the program & mash; through text, graphics, transparencies, videos, and online resources & mash; and supported by a variety of activities to help students apply their new knowledge to the real world.
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.

The universe around you and inside of you is really a collection of countless mysteries. It is the job of scientists to solve those mysteries. The goal of science is to understand the world around us. How do scientists go about understanding the world? Like all good detectives, scientists use special methods to determine truths about nature. Such truths are called facts. Here is an example of a fact: The sun is a source of light and heat. But science is more than a list of facts--just as studying science is more than memorizing facts. Jules Henri Poincaré, a famous nineteenth-century French scientist who charted the motions of planets, put it this way: "Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house." So scientists go further than simply discovering facts. Scientists try to use facts to solve larger mysteries of nature. In this sense, you might think of facts as clues to scientific mysteries. An example of a larger mystery is how the sun produces the heat and light it showers upon the Earth. Another larger mystery is how the relatively few and simple organisms of 3 billion years ago gave rise to the many complex organisms that inhabit the Earth today. Using facts they have gathered, scientists propose explanations for the events they observe. Then they perform experiments to test their explanations. In the next section of this chapter, you will learn how scientists go about performing experiments and uncovering the mysteries of nature.
