GEOGRAPHY 11F - Full Year
Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Stoddart
Geography is the study of Earth's landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is, quite simply, about the world in which we live. It seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time and explain relationships and connections between people and the environment. Essentially geography is unique in bridging the social sciences (human geography) with the natural sciences (physical geography). This course covers aspects of physical and human geography.

1. Investigating an extreme natural event and evaluating the consequences of it.
