Cyril Jackson

Year 11 General Integrated Science – G1ISC & G2ISC

These units are suitable if you have limited formal training in science.  If you have had only a little schooling in science, you might find these courses difficult.

Unit 1 

The focus for learning in these units is the practice of science. This involves putting into practice the technical aspects of scientific method, so a solid foundation in curriculum science is required.

IS2In this unit, you will develop an understanding of the processes involved in the functioning of systems from the macro level (cycles in nature and Earth systems) to systems at the organism, cellular and molecular level. They investigate and describe the effect of human activity on the functioning of cycles in nature.

Within a substantial list of learning contexts you will:

  • learn how science impacts on the community in many varied ways.
  • learn different methods of scientific investigation.
  • learn the skills necessary to use specific scientific equipment.
  • learn the skills required to collect, record, display and analyse data in different forms including tables, graphs and spreadsheets.
  • extrapolate your knowledge and skills in methods of investigation to encompass new situations.
  • learn the safe handling of chemicals, samples and equipment as well as the ethical handling of organisms.
  • learn the appropriate use of relevant scientific conventions and terminology.

Unit cost: $25.00


UNIT 2 

In this unit, you will develop an understanding of the processes involved in the transformations and redistributions of matter and energy in biological, chemical and physical systems, from the atomic to the macro level.

Within a substantial list of learning contexts you will:

  • be introduced to some models and theories in chemistry.
  • know the structure of matter can be modelled in terms of particles called atoms composed of protons, neutrons and electrons
  • develop an understanding of phase properties and changes with reference to the particle theory.
  • use appropriate chemical language including the use of chemical symbols for common elements and compounds.
  • the Laws of Motion can assist in predicting the motion of objects
  • learn that linear motion of an object is unidirectional and can be determined mathematically
  • learn that forces can be exerted by one object on another by direct contact or from a distance
  • learn that energy has different forms: kinetic, potential and heat, which can cause change

These units give an excellent background in science for many courses at TAFE.

Unit cost: $25.00
