SCIENCE with CHEMISTRY and BIOLOGY 11F - Full Year

SCB11F
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.


Pathway

AGRICULTURE 23S - Semester, BIOLOGY 21F - Full Year, CHEMISTRY 21F - Full Year, ELECTRONICS 22F - Robotics and Programming - Full Year, GENERAL SCIENCE 22S - Semester, HORTICULTURE 23S - Semester, LIFE SCIENCES 22S - Semester, PHYSICS 21F - Full Year

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

$20 for a workbook
It would benefit students to have their own device (Chromebook or laptop).


Recommended Prior Learning

Open Entry but note that a student can only choose ONE Science option at Year 11.
