Subject Name: Year 9 Science
Level: Year 9
Learning Area: Science
Recommended Knowledge: Achieving the Year 8 standard.
In Year 9, students consider the operation of systems at a range of scales. They explore ways in which the human body as a system responds to its external environment and the interdependencies between biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems.
Students are introduced to the notion of the atom as a system of protons, electrons and neutrons, and how this system can change through nuclear decay. They learn that matter can be rearranged through chemical change and that these changes play an important role in many systems.
They are introduced to the concept of the conservation of matter and begin to develop a more sophisticated view of energy transfer. They begin to apply their understanding of energy and forces to global systems such as continental movement.
Performance is assessed against the Australian Curriculum standard and reported with A to E grades at the completion of the semester.
