Addressing the changes to the New Zealand curriculum and covering the NCEA Level 1 realigned standards, Science for the New Zealand Curriculum encourages students to think like a scientist, and to understand, investigate, communicate, participate and contribute to the world of science.
Nature of Science questions and activities are integrated throughout the text, encouraging students to explore stories of scientific endeavour.
A diverse range of comprehension questions, discussion topics and enrichment activities provides opportunities for students to engage with new topics in different ways and caters for a range of learning styles and abilities.
Worked examples are provided for problems involving the use of formulae and calculation to help those who struggle with applying mathematics to real-life situations.
Biographies of scientists highlight the ‘human stories’ that drive scientific discovery and investigation.
SciFACTS boxes with interesting contemporary and historical facts bring science to life for every student.
Scientific terms defined in the margins and in the glossary at the back of the text ensure that students understand essential terms immediately and in context.
Chapter reviews help students revisit key concepts and prepare for internal and external assessment.
