Preface ; Contents


Natural science education is a crucially important area of a general background. The 21st century, an era of modern biology (chemistry and physics as well) and advanced technology, proves that it is extremely difficult to operate without a broad background in this field.
      This book is intended for the development of modern natural science education. The goal of this edition is to bring together and present the experience of natural science education in Lithuania and to introduce the author‘s research in the field. The author finds the international context relevant, and for this reason, the book at least tries to marginally reflect the experience of foreign countries. Widely known politic, ideological, etc. reasons were the main barrier for Lithuania to be recognized as it was largely isolated from the outside world for a long time. The humanities and social sciences were under the influence of oblivion. The author expects that the international academic community will approvingly and liberally approach this book. The author also believes that for most of the readers the book will push new ideas and encourage their further exploration. Moreover, it will be a very useful source of knowledge for graduates and postgraduates. If this happens, the author will feel rewarded for his arduous work.
   The study covers the relevant methodological, empiric, practic, etc. isuues of natural science education based on the data of research carried out by the Lithuanian and foreign scientists as well as by the author himself. The publication is an educational book that could be found useful for students, graduates, postgraduates, teachers and for everyone who is interested in natural science education.
