General Science

  1. 1. Year 10 General Science <ul><li>Three topics are covered in this elective subject: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Heating and Cooling </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Chemical Reactions </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Microbiology </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>It is a useful subject, because it provides a good standard of instruction in each of Chemistry, Physics and Biology within the one elective subject; however, it is not a pre-requisite for further Science study at VCE level </li></ul><ul><li>Students who are thinking </li></ul><ul><li>of continuing with any </li></ul><ul><li>science subject in the </li></ul><ul><li>future, are advised to take </li></ul><ul><li>this elective and combine </li></ul><ul><li>it with other electives of </li></ul><ul><li>interest. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Heating and Cooling – investigates the concepts of energy and temperature. Students investigate the different heat capacities of substances. Some mathematical calculations and graph work are performed and analysed. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Chemical Reactions investigates a variety of chemical reactions which are used to highlight the concept of chemical change. Factors affecting the rate of chemical reactions are studied by a series of experiments </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Microbiology studies micro-organisms. The main groups of micro-organisms and the diseases/useful applications associated with each type. </li></ul>Micro-organisms viewed under a microscope
  6. 6. <ul><li>Assessment includes topic tests, experiment reports, data analysis tasks, project work and final examination. </li></ul>Petri dishes are used to grow micro-organisms Many different types of microscopes are used
