Year 10 Science is essential learning for all students. Students explore systems at different scales and connect microscopic and macroscopic properties to explain phenomena. They explore the biological, chemical, geological and physical evidence for different theories, such as the theories of natural selection and the Big Bang Theory.
Students develop their understanding of atomic theory to understand relationships within the periodic table. They understand that motion and forces are related by applying physical laws. They learn about the relationships between aspects of the living, physical and chemical world that are applied to systems on a local and global scale and this enables them to predict how changes will affect equilibrium within these systems.
