This course is designed for those Year 8 students who require more time to consolidate their learning at Year 7 level. It provides instruction in a wide range of general science concepts. This course recognizes that students will be working towards Science 200 from a variety of starting points and that each student presents with different learning styles, study skills and general interests. Major topics of study include Classification, the Particle Model and our place in Earth and Space.
Performance Tasks are used to determine progress and achievement. Tasks include: experiments, presentations, analysis activities, online learning, topics tests, Moodle quizzes and an exam at the end of each Semester.
This Subject leads to further studies of Science in levels 200, 300 and 400, and opens access to Science electives at those Year levels also. Students can continue with Science studies into VCE.
