This post got me looking because I want to get a dictionary like this also. I found that Oxford has one. The link is below. I have a copy of the regular Oxford English Dictionary in my classroom and always encourage the students to look up a word if they don't know it. I'm going to get the science one myself also and check it out.

Here's the link to Amazon:

And I also found it at Kinokuniya:

Lower Secondary Science

Post by Schootopia » Thu Oct 12, 2017 4:41 am

As we have lower Secondary Science students from a number of different secondary schools, we observe that a given topic is covered to different extent in different schools. For example, the topic light is usually covered in Year 2. Allow me to divide it into 4 main sections - reflection, refraction, lenses and prism/diffraction. Cedars may cover all sections, but Nan Chiau leaves out lenses; Tampines Sec only introduces the basics, and Anglican selectively pulls out some concepts. There are all these differences despite the syllabus guide from SEAB.

Those looking at/for past year papers, revision papers, school notes, learning materials, whatever, need to be aware of these differences.

Hi schooltopia,

Appreciated your good, helpful feedback for Physics, from above schools, to alert us.

How about Chemistry and Biology ?
Similar behavior treated for above schools, or from other sec schools ?

different schools teach different topics...just like in primary school. so it is hard to find past year exam papers as practice. it's a mixture of chemistry, physics and biology topics. i have about 5 assessment titles just for science because some assessment titles don't cover 'photosynthesis & respiration' by itself for eg. with class/common tests held frequently, she needs to practise working on handling open ended questions.
