The new Science 9 curriculum has been designed around four big ideas:
1. Cells are derived from cells.
2. The electron arrangement of atoms impacts their chemical nature.
3. Electricity is the flow of electrons.
4. The biosphere; geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere are interconnected, as matter cycles and energy flows through them.
The course will use a variety of learning strategies such as laboratory work, projects and innovative uses of technology.
