The CSEC Integrated Science Syllabus is based on three themes, The Organism and Its Environment, The Home and Workplace, and Earth’s Place in the Universe which adequately reflect the common areas of human activity and experience. These themes form the unifying points of the syllabus which should, therefore, be seen as a coherent unit.
The syllabus is redesigned with a greater emphasis on the integration and application of scientific concepts and principles. Such an approach is adopted to develop those long-term transferable skills of ethical conduct, teamwork, problem-solving, critical thinking, and innovation and communication. It encourages the use of various teaching and learning strategies to inculcate these skills that will prove useful in everyday life, while at the same time catering to multiple intelligence and different learning styles and needs.
The syllabus is arranged in three sections sub-divided into specific objectives, corresponding explanatory notes and suggested practical activities.
|THE ORGANISM AND ITS ENVIRONMENT
|THE HOME AND WORKPLACE
|EARTH’S PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE
