Supernaturalism is the thesis that the fundamental laws of physics make irreducible reference to, or were created by, some agency's volition. This came in as I made known to Mensa that the science teacher has to be resourceful.
The teachers further assured that students that a good basic knowledge in science will help them to learn and perform better in Integrated Science and other science related courses at the senior high school level.

An inverse pattern is presented by good achievers. Maat and Zakaria and Vaughan [ 2223 ] identified a significant relationship between learning environment and attitude towards mathematics.
