Science sets the scene for change
The revised curriculum for science would therefore be grouped into three areas: our living world ("the uniqueness of being human and the importance of cells"); our material world ("sustainability, the chemistry of life processes"); and our physical world ("energy sources, motion and travel, the development of communication systems).
This approach exemplifies what other subject areas can expect. "The proposed outcomes are fairly broad, suggesting appropriate learning experiences rather than prescribing specific objectives or teaching and learning sequences."
The report states that unhelpful repetition across the sciences will be removed and note will be taken of recent advances.
