This course requires 2 options.

SCIENCE with CHEMISTRY and BIOLOGY 11F - Full Year

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr I. Reeves

This course studies a broad variety of Science, with an emphasis on Chemistry and Biology. This is designed for students who wish to pursue Chemistry or Biology in Years 12 and 13. Topics in this course build on those presented in Years 9 and 10 and further develop understanding of the Nature of Science. 

Classes will study  from the following areas, although the exact topics may vary year to year:
1. Life process of microbes and how humans interact with them.
2. How genetic information is passed from generation to generation.
3. Language of chemistry and chemical reactions.
4. Investigation in Science.

This course will offer 16 credits and will be selected from the list below. Students will NOT complete all of the assessment listed, but 4 will be selected each year. 

FUTURE POSSIBILITIES

This course can lead into a number of different Science pathways in the Senior school, including specialist Science subjects (Biology and Chemistry)and a variety of semester courses offering smaller areas of specialty or multidisciplinary contexts.
