• To enable students to achieve in NCEA Science Level 1 through an entirely internally assessed course, at a pace attainable by each student.
• To offer opportunities to gain credits in numeracy and literacy in a socio-scientific context at the same time as gaining science credits.
Internally Assessed

This is a flexible course with standards to be undertaken chosen by the teacher and the class in collaboration, from the list given below. It is expected that four standards will be assessed each year.


Pathway

Level 2 Health Science

Your Year 10 Science teacher will advise you on the Level 1 Science course that best suits your learning needs between SC102 and SC100.

Equipment/Stationery

It is of benefit to students to bring a laptop to lessons although they will not be disadvantaged academically if they do not. They may need to access a Chromebook from school instead.
