Planning, programming and assessing science 7-10
In Stages 4 and 5, the study of science is mandatory.
The science Years 7-10 Syllabus (2018) emphasises inquiry-based learning. Students explore the physical world, earth and space, living world, and chemical world embedding the working scientifically skills of:
- questioning and predicting
- planning investigations
- conducting investigations
- processing and analysing data and information
Programming includes detailed information and resources for teaching the skills of working scientifically including the student research project.
The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Science Years 7-10 Syllabus (2018) page contains useful information for the teaching of Stages 4 and 5 science.
