Tip No. 4: Always keep the references of your research

Always make sure to copy the website link or URL of the articles you found on the web.
If its a book, then copy it's title, author, publisher and year of publication.

It is important, especially if you need to find it again.

Tip No. 2: E-mail as an Online Data Storage

Kapag nagre-research through internet [online], mahalagang mayroon ka pinagtataguan ng mga nare-research mo na online din. Therefore I suggest na gumawa ka ng e-mail. This time, you should have realized na hindi lang sa paggawa ng account sa Facebook or Twitter may silbi ang e-mail.

Maaaring mag-upload or mag-save ng mga document files sa e-mail, tulad ng Microsoft Word, Excel or Powerpoint Files. Puwede din mag-upload or mag-save ng images, audio and video files.

Maaari ding isend ang mga files na ito sa ibang may e-mail din. So I suggest na gumawa na kayo ng e-mail. Heto ang mga sites na nag-o-offer ng free e-mail account.

Tip No.1: How to easily memorize names and dates

Ok guys... hindi ninyo kailangan kabisaduhin ang bawat lecture na ipapasulat sa inyo ng inyong teacher... Maniwala kayo o sa hindi, ang tanging sikreto ay ang "maluwag sa loob na pag-unawa" sa tinuro ng teachers ninyo. Sabihin nating may mga taong mahirap talaga makatanda ng maraming detalye, pero di ninyo kailangan mawalan ng pag-asa. Ayaw ninyo ng History dahil napakaraming dates at pangalan ng tao na dapat tandaan? Maaari ninyong gawin ito: gawin ninyong mga tauhan sa isang palabas ang mga dapat tandaang gawin ninyong related sa inyo ang mga detalye tungkol sa kanya...

Halimbawa: Jose Rizal, pinanganak noong June 19, 1861

At ganito ang paraan para tandaan siya:

Ah, pambansang bayani natin, si Jose Rizal, sino ba ang hindi nakakakilala sa kanya? Basta ang alam ko, kaBirthday siya ng crush kong si Lea, June 19 din, tapos parehong 61 ung dulo ng taon kung kelan sila pinanganak ng nanay ko, 1961 kasi ang nanay ko... so malamang 1861 naman si Rizal kasi hindi pwedeng magkasing tanda sila di ba?

Ganoon lang kasimple. sigurado yan matatandaan ninyo ang mga ganyan... Maaari pa kayong gumawa ng ibat ibang paraan...

Science: Relationship between Electricity and Magnetism

Relationship between Electricity and Magnetism

1. When a current passes through a coil of wire, it generates a magnetic field along its axis. This was discovered by Hans Christian Dersted

2. If a loop of wire is moved through a magnetic field, a current is induced in the wire (ex. transformer, generator). Discovered by Michael Faraday

The magnet, in the ancient times, was called lodestone.

Science: Law of Conservation of Charges

Law of Conservation of Charges
  • By Benjamin Franklin 
  • In an isolated system, the total charge is conserved. 
Materials can acquire charges when/through:
  • Friction/rubbing (static electricity) 
  • Placed near/on contact with a charged body 
  • Induction, that produces a charge when there is a redistribution of charges 
  • Ionization, the formation of cation (+) and anion (-)

Literature: Types of Poetry

Types of Poetry

  1. Narrative - tells a series of events
    • Epic - long, unified narrative peom, story of warrior, king or god in which:
      • protagonist is larger than life
      • two dimensional [the good and the bad]
      • more than human strength
      • setting covers up to universe
      • may provide historical fact/place
      • gods/divinities were involved
      • adventure adheres to central theme
    • Metrical romance - story of knights [example: Beowulf]
    • Metrical Tale 
    • Ballad - narrative poem meant to be sang
  2. Lyric - honors its musical origin
    • Ode - peom of praise
    • Elegy - poem for the dead
    • Sonnet - iambic pentameter [14-lined poem]
    • Song - set to music
    • Simple lyric - poet’s thoughts, emotions and feelings

Science: Biology - Mechanism of Organism Evolution

Mechanism of Organism Evolution
  • variation and natural selection
  • genetic drift (migration) - accidental changes in frequency of genes
  • adaptive radiation - rapid multiplication of related species each with specializations
  • allopatric speciation - developments of new species as a result of geograpical isolation which prevents interbreeding
  • mutation - alteration or change of DNA

Science: Biology - Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection

Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection

Origin of “species” book, all organisms have the tendency to overproduce in reproduction; however, the total population seeme to remain about the approximate number; hence, competition exists; survival of the fittest.
  1. species have the ability to produce large number of offsprings
  2. resources of the natural world is limited
  3. organisms have to compete
  4. no two individuals are exactly alike
  5. organisms that have survived and produced offspring are those that inherited beneficial traits for survival

Science: Biology - Geologic Time Scale by Arthur Holmes 1913

Biology - Geologic Time Scale by Arthur Holmes 1913

  1. Cenozoic
    • Quarternary - human civilizations
    • Tertiary - age of mammals
  2. Mesozoic
    • Cretaceous - last of the dinosaurs
      • Jurrasic- dinosaurs abundant
      • Triassic - first mamals and dinousaurs
  3. Paleozoic
    • Permian - expansion of reptiles
      • Carboniferous - age of amphibians
      • Devonians - age of fishes
      • Silurian - few arthropods
      • Ordovician - first vertebrates
      • Cambriam - marine invertebrates
  4. Precambriam
    • primitive marine life

Science: Biology - Evidences of Evolution

  1. Fossils - most common fossil impressions left in the sedimentary rocks; fossils may preserve in glaciers[remnants]
  2. Structural similarities
  3. Vestigial organs - small and incomplete organs that have no apparent function
    [example: coccyx or tails bones of human]
  4. Evidences from embryology
  5. Genetics and Biochemistry
