Level 1 Applied Science

ASC1
Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Whaea C. Northage

Students will build on a foundation of scientific knowledge and skills gained in Years 9 and 10 to explore how the natural, physical, and material worlds work so that they can participate as critical, informed, and responsible citizens in a society in which Science plays a significant role. The units of work are designed to help students understand the world around them and to develop a wide range of practical skills. Practical work is a major part of this course. 

Note that all standards offered are internal standards and so this course is not eligible for subject endorsement.

Four achievement standards will be completed during this course - an example of a possible course is listed below.
