  • explore the biological, chemical, geological and physical evidence for different theories, such as the theories of natural selection and the Big Bang
  • connect atomic theory development with relationships in the periodic table
  • develop understanding of how motion and forces are related by applying physical laws
  • form relationships between aspects of the living, physical and chemical world are applied to systems on a local and global scale and this enables students to predict how changes will affect equilibrium within these systems.
