Science tuition class in Miracle Learning Centre is fun and enriching. You will learn about the different aspects of Science and how to learn study skills too. If you do not like or understand Science, you must definitely attend the Science tuition class at Miracle Learning Centre to arouse and reignite your interest. Let us learn about Materials in this science tuition lesson.
A chemical substance or mixture of substances that constitute an object is known as material. Material is a substance that is used for making objects. Materials can be pure or impure, living or non-living matter. Materials can be classified on their physical and chemical properties, or based on their geological origin or biological function. Some materials occur naturally such as metals while others such as plastics are man-made. Materials can be classified into two groups: Metals or Non-Metals. Metals usually have the characteristics of shiny, ductile, malleable and conduct heat and electricity. Non-Metals, on the other hand, can be further classified into four groups namely ceramics, plastics, fibers and glass.
Some of the classifications of metal according to their use –
- Building Materials
- Building Insulation Materials
- Refractory Materials
- Nuclear Materials
- Aerospace Materials
Ceramics are made from clay, hard when dry and do not rust. They also have a high melting point and do not conduct electricity. Plastics are very light and can easily be mold. They do not conduct electricity and rust. Fibers can be spun into threads, woven into fabrics and can absorb dye. Glass is transparent and is easily broken. They are also poor electrical and heat conductor.
Miracle Learning Centre would like to bring you more facts on Science tuition concepts and experiments. We hope you have understood this science tuition lesson. Science tuition lessons are created to help students excel and we believe “You are a MIRACLE!” and you can do it too.
Science is definitely without any doubt the most important subject of the world. Everything around us, every phenomenon happening around us has an explanation by Science. Science is connected with a lot of other subjects and it itself has numerous sub-branches which makes it really important to learn Science. Almost all the common future career scopes are involved with Science and this requires Science to be learned with utmost care and attention.
