In their planning, schools and teachers refer to the expectations outlined in theAchievement Standards and also to the content of the Science Understandingstrand for the relevant year level to ensure that these two strands are addressed over the two-year period. The threestrands of the curriculum are interrelated and their content is taught in an integrated way. The order and detail in which the content descriptions are organised into teaching/learning programs aredecisions to be made by the teacher.</p><p>ver !ears " to #$, students develop their understanding of microscopic and atomic structures, how systems at a range of scales are shaped by flows of energy and matter and interactions due toforces, and develop the ability to %uantify changes and relative amounts. In !ear &amp;, students consider the operation of systems at a range of scales. They explore ways in which the human body</p><p>as a system responds to its external environment and the interdependencies between biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems. They are introduced to the notion of the atom as a system ofprotons, 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 animportant 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 theirunderstanding of energy and forces to global systems such as continental movement.</p><p>Achievement standard 'y the end of !ear &amp;, students explain chemical processes and natural radioactivity in terms of atoms and energy transfers and describe examples of important chemical reactions. They describe</p><p>modelsof energy transfer and apply these to explain phenomena. They explain global features and events in terms of geological processes and timescales. They analysehow biological systemsfunction and respond to external changes with reference to interdependencies, energy transfers and flows of matter.They describe social and technological factors that have influenced scientificdevelopments and predict how future applications of science and technologymay affect people(s lives.</p><p>Students design%uestions that can be investigated using a range of in%uiry s)ills. They designmethods that include the control and accurate measurement of variablesand systematic collectionofdataand describe how they considered ethics and safety. They analysetrendsindata, identify relationshipsbetween variablesand reveal inconsistencies in results. They analysetheirmethods and the %uality of their data, and explain specific actions to improve the %uality of their evidence.They evaluateothers( methods and explanations from a scientific perspective and useappropriate language and representations when communicating their findings and ideas to specific audiences.</p><p>Source* Australian +urriculum, Assessment and eporting Authority A+AA,Australian Curriculum v3.0: Science for oundation!"0,$1.</p><p>Term overvie Term !
