Level 1 Science

11SCI
Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

Studying science improves our ability to understand today's big issues, make informed decisions and assess the credibility, reliability, and validity of what we see and hear. It also provides a foundation for understanding the world and helps us develop scientific skills, attitudes and values that enable us to make links 'between scientific knowledge and everyday decisions and actions'

This Level 1 course will be structured to allow students to achieve their goals, while studying at a level suited to their ability. Students in this course will be assessed using a combination of internally assessed Achievement Standards and externally assessed Achievement Standards. 

Students and teachers will consult on how many external standards, if any, a student might sit at the end of the year. All students have the opportunity to gain at least 20 credits. 

During the year students will investigate and develop an understanding of Biology, Physics and Chemistry by studying a range of topics which could include: 

Motion, Acids and Bases and Genetics, which are all assessed externally. 

Micro-organisms, Atomic Structure, Astronomy, Food, Metals, Chemical reactions which will be assessed internally.
