New Zealand Pathfinder: Science Year 9 provides complete coverage of the Level One NCEA Science Achievement Standards. It is designed so that students will gain an understanding of essential scientific concepts, principals, formulae and skills. The new edition is accompanied by a CDROM that will assist students in their study of Science with homework revision sheets, web links and interactive activities. CHANGES  REVISED SCIENCE PATHFINDERS Yr 9 & Yr 10 * Layout redesigned to give a more spacious feel to the pages * All diagrams replaced with scientifically accurate, professionally drawn images by New Zealand's top scientific illustrator, Tony Mander * Fonts replaced with contemporary, easiertoread fonts * Many new photos are included * All text edited to increase the clarity and simplicity of the language * Terminology simplified wherever possible * All content checked for scientific accuracy * Complete coverage of all achievement objectives of the new New Zealand curriculum * Curriculum coverage matrices included * Existing topics and units aligned with the new curriculum * New units added on waves and climate change to meet expectations of the new curriculum * Glossaries and indexes expanded to better meet the needs of students. Schools will need to demonstrate to ERO that their courses provide complete coverage of the achievement objectives of the new curriculum, so the curriculum coverage grid should engage the interest of teachers. All of the original topics and units are still there and have been linked to the new curriculum, so teachers do not need to be concerned that the topics that they have taught in the past will no longer be present in this highly popular series of books. Also included with each book is a CD, which contains: * Digital files for each page of the book * Students worksheets and tests * Enlarged versions of all diagrams, which can be used for teaching presentations or student handouts.
