Out of the three main sciences...

... which were you the strongest in at school?

Now don't let this be determined by the final results you got, as sometimes you can just perform badly on the day of the exam. Also this poll is not necessarily asking which you enjoyed the most, if any, but what you were constantly strongest in

Some silly options included for those who don't know, or don't want to say Poll away

Re: Out of the three main sciences...

Physics for me

Chemistry was just an excuse to mix chemicals Usually Ammonia and Hydrochloric acid (you didn't have to mix them ...... just open the bottles)

Re: Out of the three main sciences...

I voted biology, but chemistry was my favourite. Rubbish at physics. BTW I'm now a science teacher.

Re: Out of the three main sciences...

Really struggled with science at school. Just to give you an idea, when I did my o level, we had to work out what something was from some tests - the science teacher told us about three times that if it produced lots of black smoke it was ...I can't remember now, but basically told us what it was and I still got it wrong

But Maths was my thing and although I left it till I was older, I got a degree in it eventually - so I suppose that makes up for it

Physics for me.
Theoretical physics was my 2nd choice on my university application, thankfully I got my first choice (Computers) because I only realized later there was no money in physics as a career in Ireland at the time

Re: Out of the three main sciences...

Biology for me, also enjoyed it the most of the science subjects at school. But strangely enough, it was not one of my A-level choices .

Re: Out of the three main sciences...

physics for me to, hated Science, biology, was never really keen but got a C in Physics (so must have done something right?).


Is shopping a 'science' or a sport (or a past time?), never quite managed to get my head round that!

It MUST be a science, because you always have a control. example:

one pair black 4" heels in wardrobe. used as the control to measure the other 25 pairs of black heels in the wardrobe.
same applies to dress, coat, etc.etc.

ergo - science

Re: Out of the three main sciences...

Shopping is not a science

Demostic Science may include shopping though

Is Home Economics included in Demostic Science

... and Needlework (I was quite good at that )

I'm bit confused now


Be right back!... after this message!

Re: Out of the three main sciences...

Of course shopping's a science -
You have a hypothesis - Will my bum look big in this?
You test the hypothesis - Try the jeans on
You come to a conclusion - No it doesn't - I'll buy them

And then you use the outcome to predict future events - I'll be okay with those jeans next time!

How can it not be science

As a Head of Physics I have to say Physics!

As for the above have you been able to reproduce the results? Have others? Have you published? I think I'll need to see the equations.

According to my daughter shopping is more of a subjective art-form!

All science is Physics, the rest is just stamp collecting, Rutherford.
