The study of science aims to provide students with both a body of knowledge and an understanding of the scientific approach to problem solving. The ability to formulate hypotheses, design and carry out experiments to test them, and evaluate results constitutes the framework within which specific content is presented.
Among other skills, students are expected to:
Areas of Interaction:
Approaches to Learning, Community and Service, Human Ingenuity, Environments, Health and Social Education
Each unit is taught through an area of interaction. One area of interaction is the focus along with Approaches to Learning which will be used in all units
Student Learning Expectations:
Each Area of Interaction has specific Student Learning Expectations
There are specific questions outlined in each of the different subject guides to assist you.
A real life concept
Unit Question not specific to the subject related to the summative assessment
Common Formative and Summative Assessments
Maximum: 6One world enables students to gain a better understanding of the role of science in society and allows them to explore how scientific developments and applications are applied and used to address specific problems or issues in local and global contexts.
Communication in science enables students to develop the communication skills to become competent and confident when communicating information in science.
Suitable assessment tasks for criterion C include tests, examinations, case studies, written responses and other assignments that combine a range of problems of different complexity, and opportunities for students to makes scientifically supported judgments.
Suitable assessment tasks for criterion D should provide students with the opportunity to design and carry out a scientific investigation independently. Some of the possible types of suitable practical work include laboratory experiments, investigations and field studies among others.
