Science Facts & Homework Help
As students, we study science from our earliest years in elementary school to our final years in high school. A required component of many state-wide standardized assessments and diploma programs, science is wide and varied, covering many fields of study, including astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology, physics, zoology and more.
Here Bright Hub Education offers homework help that encompass many of those fields of study, and includes science facts, study guides, and explanations to help you better understand the subject matter you are reviewing in school. You’ll find science help for all grade levels, from grade school to college prep, as well as tips to help you memorize the basic foundations in each topic you review.
The phrase “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny” still has some value in modern zoology, even though its original version has been thoroughly rejected. This article explains its importance to cladistics.
This article is the first in a two-part series on shark phylogeny. It describes interesting facts about the evolution of sharks.
Explore the evolution of humans from ancestors that existed before the first primates appeared, to early humans, to the present day. What can we learn from the past fossil records about our history?
The creation vs. evolution debate has been raging ever since Charles Darwin published “On the Origin of Species,” with evolutionists producing scientific evidence that creationists discount on the basis of their faith. Does that make either side right or wrong? Who’s the winner in this debate?
Evolution is still a subject under contention due to the religious controversy surrounding the subject. One argument is that there is a lack of fossil evidence for evolution, but is this claim true?
In the creation vs. evolution debate, this is a big question. To understand the answer, it is important first to understand what the term “theory” means in science. Evolutionary biologists say that evolution is both a fact and a theory.
Have you ever heard of cladistics? It is a somewhat obscure field dealing with the evolution and classification of species that has some surprising applications in modern medicine.
Phylogenetic trees are like family trees, only with species instead of individuals. Learn what they do and how to use them here.
