THILAGAVATHY PILLAI

Hello and Welcome to Mrs Pillai's Science Page Biology and Integrated Science are both lab-based classes. We enjoy a variety of fun, hands-on activities that cover the content areas. However it is imperative that students understand the key concepts as we progress through the curriculum. Lab Report Writing as well as the development of critical thinking skills is emphasized. Students are expected to work on assignments posted on this site as per class announcements. Grades will be emailed on a regular basis. There are also additional links to sites that will add to the material we cover in class. Here are some interesting quotes: It is a popular delusion that the scientific enquirer is under an obligation not to go beyond generalization of observed facts...but anyone who is practically acquainted with scientific work is aware that those who refuse to go beyond the facts, rarely get as far. Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-95) English biologist. One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike and yet it is the most precious thing we have. Albert Einstein
