Year 9 Science


Common Unit

Unit Description

In Year 9 students investigate the structure of the atom, the use of materals and rections of life. Students further consolidate this through studying the effects of electromagnetism and critical analysis of uses of electrical energy and plate tectonics. The biological component places an emphasis on current research, knowledge and understanding of body co-ordination, disease and the environment. This course allows students to understand the big ideas involved in current research of science as a whole as well as becoming scientifically literate, independant learners.
