Year 9 Science

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Whaea C. Northage

Students will develop their understanding of the world, built on current scientific theories. They will use the scientific skills of investigation and then communicate their observations through symbols and text, in the contexts of living things, matter, energy and the universe. Students will learn to work independently as well as participate with each other in a team. They will then be able to make informed decisions about the applications and implications of science as these relate to their own lives and cultures and to the sustainability of the environment.
