    • Integrating Psychology Topicsinto Year 10 Science
    • Why?
      Introduces Psychology as a science
      To engage students to choose Psychology in year 11
      Gives students theopportunity to do a scaled down investigation.
    • Where?
      How to fit psychology into a crowded year 10 curriculum?
      1st Semester topics:
      Biology: Genetics
      Chemistry: Fuels
      Physics: Road Science
    • Road Science
    • Perception and Attention
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Perception
      Perception is the way people interpret and organise information from the world around them.
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Factors Influencing Visual Perception
      Factors in the Target:
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Year 10 MYP Science
    • All Searches Are NOT Equal
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Which is more difficult?
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Why Is This Important?
      Watch the Dial
      Watch for Light
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Year 10 MYP Science
    • ATTENTION!!!
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Attention
      Attention is the cognitive process of selectively concentrating on one aspect of the environment while ignoring other things.
      Related Concepts:
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Divided Attention
      -the ability to divide our attentional processing between more than one task.
      Dual task experiments
      Get people to perform multiple tasks and look at the effects on performance
      Performance suffers, this shows limitations and nature of the human information-processing system
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Divided Attention
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Attention while driving
      List all the things you may need to attend to while driving in a car.
      Describe 3 things that may enhance your focus while driving
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Dual Task Performance
      Divided attention is difficult when:
      Tasks are similar
      Tasks are difficult
      When both tasks require conscious attention
      Divided attention is easier when:
      Tasks are dissimilar
      Tasks are simple
      When at least one of the tasks does not require conscious attention
      Tasks are practiced
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Different Processes
      Some tasks are easier to perform than others and don’t seem to affect attention
      Especially tasks that are well practiced
      Other tasks are tedious and require our conscious attention (white line fever)
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Cuing Attention
      Give people a cue where a target will appear in the visual field
      Manipulate the kind of cue
      Valid Cue
      Neutral Cue
      Invalid Cue
      How does cue affect performance?
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Cues while driving
      Turn signals
      Road markings
      Road signs
      Cars Instruments
      Year 10 MYP Science
    • Formative Practical
      Stroop Test
    • Summative Practical
      Divided attention affects Reaction Time.
    • 2nd Semester Subject Medical Science
      Topics include
      Biomedical Devices
      Cardiovascular Medicine
      Skeletal Medicine
      Life Support, Pulmonary System
      Non-invasive and Minimally Invasive Techniques
    • Positive Psychology
    • Major Concept
      The mind can strongly affect physical health and by understanding how we can influence our thought processes we can improve our physical and mental health.
    • Tasks in Positive Psychology
      apply the scientific method to psychology investigations.
      critically analyse a survey
      construct their own survey.
      take a survey to determine their Personal Character Virtues.
      write a gratitude letter.
      examine unhelpful thinking styles.
    • Practical
      Looks at how deep breathing can decrease stress levels.
