The Level 1 Science Investigations Skills course will help prepare your students for undertaking their own practical investigations for any or all of these achievement standards:
- 90925 Carry out a practical investigation in a biological context, with direction
- 90930 Carry out a practical chemistry investigation, with direction
- 90935 Carry out a practical physics investigation that leads to a linear mathematical relationship, with direction.
This course will give learners the necessary grounding in all the steps of the scientific investigation process. They will start with planning the investigation and move onto collecting and recording the results. Then, students look at processing and presenting the data, as well as interpreting the processed data. Finally, they’ll look at writing the scientific report. Your students will get plenty of practice throughout this course to build the investigative skills they need. They will use case studies and examples from biology, chemistry and physics to give them context.
Eventually, when students move on to the courses listed above that relate to the specific practical investigations achievement standards, they’ll learn further key subject-specific skills. They will have the opportunity to apply these skills to additional subject-specific case studies. All of this will help get students fully ready for undertaking their own practical investigation (with your direction).
So whether you have students working on: AS90925, AS90930 or AS90935, starting them off on this Level 1 Science Investigations Skills course will help give them the knowledge and skills they need to excel. Students will then be able to continue with the relevant subject-specific course.
