Level 1 Science Foundation
Through a range of practical science investigations students will develop their self-management and ability to communicate with others. Students will develop critical thinking skills as they link observations to theory. Students will explore the use of a range of scientific symbols and vocabulary.
What Knowledge Will I Develop?
This course aims to provide students with a solid foundation of fundamental living, physical and material world concepts to prepare them for further science study. Students will investigate and solve problems relating to everyday mechanics phenomena. Students will link atomic structure to the periodic table and investigate factors that affect chemical processes. Students will develop their understanding of genetic inheritance and the importance of variation. Students who intend to study senior biology, chemistry or physics should take this course.
