The Science Discipline


For most students, science is a subject to be tolerated especially in school; after the tests and examination period are over, the details usually are promptly forgotten. This can be understandable due to the fact that, regrettably, the school science curriculum entails a variety of lectures on analogous facts and taxonomy about the different discoveries made courtesy of science. Join the Byju’s classes for better preparation.

These theorems are coupled with the strenuous burden of having to memorize long passages and paragraphs of strange biological words. However, the implication that understanding science is a complex notion and should be left entirely to scientists or those with political agendas is extremely damaging and wrong.

The scientific research pace accelerates on a daily basis and therefore science students need to grapple with issues of the science field each and every day. Even the society’s most urgent and complicated public policy discussions have at some point been correlated with questions of science. The imperative that students in some way are engaged in issues of science has significantly impacted their lives as they try to thrive in today’s world in the best possible way.

Furthermore, it’s important for students to understand the question of science and its impact on their lives irrespective of their class or standard. For example, the many effects and causes which affect human health revolve around science; lung cancer is caused by smoking; diabetes results to obesity; brain damage may arise due to lead poisoning; an unborn child can be affected by brain damage if an expectant mother embraces unhealthy drinking habits; all these are objectively and conceptually proven claims and questions of science. This doesn’t apply in isolation to students alone; the general public is also affected and it should also grapple with issues of the science field. For example, proper understanding of issues related to climatology significantly informs those associated with fossil fuels regulation and consumption, as well as, energy policy.

From a less weighty perspective, science is not restricted to school textbooks alone; it is everywhere in the society. Unfortunately, most students and citizens, at large, lack the necessary information to assess the facts and more, so be able to distinguish facts from mere talk, opinion, political spin or fiction. Lack of adequate information makes them vulnerable to be predominantly swayed by the prevailing mere talks in their regions, which perhaps is the reason why most students record poor performance index.

That being said, Byju gives an outline or the table of content of NCERT book of science of class 7 below showing the various essential topics contained and explained in the book. According to Byju’s overview as shown below, the NCERT 7th standard science syllabus for class 7 contains relevant informative and adaptable topics that equip the 7th class student with adequate information in:
