Students from Everyday Life


Bombing of modern scientific jargons from media


Ex:
premordial

universe & inflation after Big Bang, Higgs
boson, quantum leap, quantum teleportation, metal oxide
chips (News topics on
Scientific American

They’d better learn the meanings from school science


They only need to use the terms in their everyday life instead
of grabbing the full scientific meaning
