Introduces students to the three core disciplines in science: chemistry, physics, and biology. Students analyse and solve science-based problems using scientific and quantitative concepts.
The nature of science
Quantitative concepts (arithmetic, graphs, algebra and descriptive statistics).
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||Demonstrate an understanding of key concepts in biology, chemistry and physics.|
|2||Apply problem solving skills and quantitative concepts to scientific contexts|
|3||Apply scientific language to effectively communicate scientific processes and concepts|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of key concepts in biology, chemistry and physics.
- Apply problem solving skills and quantitative concepts to scientific contexts
- Apply scientific language to effectively communicate scientific processes and concepts
- No prescribed texts.
