Course Outline

The Integrated Science ATAR course enables students to investigate science issues in the context of the world around them. It incorporates aspects of biology, chemistry, geology and physics. Integrated Science encourages students to be questioning, reflective and critical thinkers about scientific issues. Students apply their scientific knowledge in areas such as vehicle safety and driving, personal lifestyle choices, and environmental issues associated with biodiversity and conservation. Students develop a range of practical skills and techniques through investigations and fieldwork in context, and use scientific evidence to make informed decisions about scientific issues.

The Year 11 syllabus is divided into two units:

Unit 1 – Driver safety and hearing
Through an integrated, scientific approach, this unit explores two major issues for today’s society: safety on the roads, and the effects of listening to loud sounds.

Unit 2 – Biodiversity and conservation
The focus of this unit is on the effects that human activities have on biodiversity, and methods of conservation.
