Physical Sciences:
Electrical energy can be transferred and transformed in electrical circuits and can be generated from a range of sources (ACSSU097)

Science as a Human Endeavour

Science involves testing predictions by gathering data and using evidence to develop explanations of events and phenomena and reflects historical and cultural contributions (ACSHE098)

Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions (ACSHE100)

Science Inquiry Skills

With guidance, pose clarifying questions and make predictions about scientific investigations (ACSIS232)

Identify, plan and apply the elements of scientific investigations to answer questions and solve problems using equipment and materials safely and identifying potential risks (ACSIS103)

Decide variables to be changed and measured in fair tests, and observe measure and record data with accuracy using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS104)

Construct and use a range of representations, including tables and graphs, to represent and describe observations, patterns or relationships in data using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS107)

Compare data with predictions and use as evidence in developing explanations (ACSIS221)

Reflect on and suggest improvements to scientific investigations (ACSIS108)

Communicate ideas, explanations and processes using scientific representations in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts (ACSIS110)
