Welcome to Integrated Science! As a subject, Integrated Science offers students the chance to look at science in a new way, not following the traditional divisions into Biology, Chemistry and Physics.As science has developed, there are disciplines which fall between these old subjects, such as biochemistry or biophysics, and there are also important areas of science which are much better studied as a whole, rather than looking narrowly at only the physical or chemical aspects. Examples here are industrial science or food science.
Teaching Integrated Science gives students and teachers an opportunity to look at the ways in which science is important to our societies and to their development. Integrated Science can be more relevant to development issues, and should be topical and useful, rather than dry and academic.Much of the content of typical syllabuses for this subject is contained in the other subject areas of the site, so this section only contains those topics which are special to Integrated Science.
All practical work must be carried out safely in order to avoid injury or damage. Safety notices are provided in each of the lesson plans where appropriate, and they are indicated with a yellow triangle like this.
