This research study gives in detail the theoretical perspectives and research results concerned to scientific attitude, scientific aptitude and achievement in biology. This report will help the researchers to probe into the unsorted areas, the planners to frame feasible policies, the authors to develop suitable books, the teachers to provide appropriate learning experiences, and the students to enhance the traits to the expected levels.
The National Policy on Education (1986) initiated a scheme called Operation Blackboard Scheme , which was launched in 1987. It was formulated with an assumption that the improvement in school environment would increase the enrolment rate, retention rate and attainment levels of primary school children. The three interdependent components in the scheme were Provision of at least two reasonably large rooms that are usable in all weathers, with a deep veranda along with toilet facilities for boys and girls separately; Provision of at lest two teachers, as far as possible, one of them a woman, in every primary school; and Provision of essential teaching learning materials. The scheme prescribed the above-mentioned minimum level of facilities to all primary schools with a view to ensure improvement in school environment. The scheme has realized its goals to some extent and these results will be of use to a great extent in realization of the objectives of District Primary Education Programme and Sarva shiksha Abhiyan.

Mathematics is one of the core subjects in school education. The need to make mathematics teaching interesting and effective is, therefore, felt all around. Concept Attainment Model is considered to be effective in teaching mathematical concepts. So a research study to evaluate the effectiveness of CAM in maths teaching has been undertaken. As the utilisation of innovative teaching approaches help the students a lot, it is always better to apply the techniques like CAM wherever and whenever there is a possibility. The teachers and researchers will get a great advantage with this book.

Every human society has developed certain cultural norms, customs, traditions and rituals in planning and constructing a house. It is a tendency of the owner of the house to complete these cultural formalities so as to find peace (shanti) in the new vastu or home.
