Level 2 General Science
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?
Students will develop an understanding of the causes of natural hazards using examples around Aotearoa such as the Tarawera eruption. Students will describe how and why genetic variation and change occurs, they will explain biological processes that affect gene expression. Students will carrry out a chemistry titration for quantitative analysis of chemicals. Through experimental observation students will gain an understanding of organic chemistry and reactions. This course provides a pathway for students who wish to continue a broad science learning.
