About this Unit
Science is a way of knowing about the world. It is a process of discovery whose product, an evolving body of scientific knowledge and technology, is a significant determinant of modern Western societies. Engaging with the content, process, and social functions of science requires foundational scientific literacy, including the ability to access multiple textual forms, to construct meaning, and to critically evaluate new information in a scientific framework. In this unit students will develop skills in scientific literacy through undertaking case studies of contemporary relevance. Emphasis is placed on key competencies in scientific academic writing – collecting, analysing, organising, interpreting and communicating information – as well as solving problems related to mathematical ideas and techniques.
