This book features a wide range of Science Olympiad questions that require higher-order thinking skills to understand and solve. The first section introduces worked examples from each branch of Science: Biology, Chemistry and Physics. These examples offer a glimpse into the presentation and difficulty of the questions throughout the book.
The second section comprises ten Science Olympiad tests with 25 questions in each test. Each question falls into one of three categories–General Knowledge, Inferential and Data Analysis. General knowledge questions quiz students regarding the fundamental concepts of Science.
Inferential questions present background information regarding an advanced concept, and students need to infer the answers based on the given information. Data analysis questions are characterised by data – in the form of numbers, graphs and formulae – which students require to make sense of to arrive at the answers.
Full worked solutions with explanations can be found at the end of the book.
