The Sciences offered in Cambridge International Academy’s Pre-University Summer Programme are Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.
Biology is the study of life and living organisms. From its ancient beginnings modern biology has evolved into a wide and eclectic field composed of many specialised disciplines. These disciplines study the structure, function, growth, distribution, evolution, and other features of living organisms, from a single cell to complex multicellular creatures. Our Biology course covers the topics of Evolution, Genetics and Biodiversity.
Although there are several different branches (for example analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and biophysical chemistry) broadly speaking Chemistry is the study of the composition and properties of matter, and how different substances react in each other’s presence thereby changing their composition and properties.
Mathematics is the science that deals with the logic of shape, quantity and arrangement. Maths is all around us, in everything we do. It is the building block for everything in our daily lives, including mobile devices, architecture, art, money, engineering, and even sports. The more complex a society, the more complex its mathematical needs
Physics is the scientific study of matter and energy, and how they interact with each other. This energy can take the form of many things such as motion, light, electricity, radiation or gravity — just about anything. Physics deals with matter on scales ranging from sub-atomic particles (i.e. the particles that make up the atom and the particles that make up those particles) to stars and even entire galaxies.
